How to ‘Be More Lucy’
Okay let’s go!
I was 9 – my parents asked if I could play any instrument what would you play and then added, don’t say drums, so of course I said drums but they listened and then here we are. Don’t get me wrong though, I was drumming on pots and pans before that.
I have been an actor-muso since I went to drama school which is where I realized that I could combine the crafts and create multi-faceted art. Acting/musical theatre and drums had been quite separate for me until then; I also came from a visual art background. Drama school helped me view myself as a creator, with all of these separate skills like tools in my toolbox which I could pull out and use in conjunction with each other in the same place. I was also in bands when I was a teenager and only since graduating have I picked that back up, I’m in a band called CHARLESCANTBREATHE – yes you can find us on Spotify and our Instagram is @charlezcantbreathe we usually gig in London and Brighton.
Wow, it’s mad to be asked how to be more Lucy.
I still feel like a tiny seed (or maybe a little sapling?) As I’m still growing and beginning my career. HOWEVER this is my three step manual to being a bad-ass queen
- Pursue your interests and follow your dreams (even when people tell you that you can’t!)
- Continue to learn, always.
- Your uniqueness is your talent. Enjoy being odd.
Lucy plays drums, the cajon and uses her voice superbly! Fun fact though, she uses 4 types of stick in the show and has both a cowbell and tambourine attached to her kit!
