We Are Pleased To Announce The Next Act To Perform At Leeds Pride, Lucy Whittaker

Lucy Whittaker is fast becoming one of the most influential unsigned pop artists around, and she shows no sign of stopping. Fresh from a national press piece in DIVA magazine, Lucy’s brand of empowered-pop has made her a hit with BBC Radio One’s Clara Amfo, as well as supporting industry power houses Craig David, Clean Bandit, as well as Scott Mills and Anne Marie.

 

Having started the writing process at the age of 12, Lucy’s early influences of pop, soul and reggae have been integral to her songwriting and recordings. It is in Lucy’s percussive and stylistic vocal delivery, and her impeccable live performances where she references the work of Michael Jackson. Ten years on from putting her first few songs together, Lucy would be sat in a crowded lecture hall listening to her single being debuted on radio one.

 

With a growing fan base and a phenomenal following in the LGBT community, Lucy has smashed some of the biggest PRIDE dates in 2017, as well as confirming 2018 Leeds, Manchester and the DIVA stage in the capital. Lucy’s last release ‘I’m Not Ever Coming Back Again’ charted at #12 in the UK Viral 50 chart, and had radio-play on an international scale. Her debut EP broke to top spot in the Hype Machine Twitter chart, and she was recently nominated for Best Record and Best Female Artist on the UMA’s 2018 long-list.

 

Lucy has her eyes set on big things, with the ‘self-propelled pop sensation’ (CLASH) wanting to take on more full band live shows, more collaborations, as well as making more music that matters Having spent the last 12 months hitting the ground running, you can expect more of the same. Lucy’s not one who settles for ‘ok’.

  Lucy told us "I’m delighted to be performing at Leeds Pride again this year. As an LGBT artist, Pride is a cause that’s so close to my heart, and I want to keep spreading the core message of Pride as much as possible - to continue the fight for love and equality. Leeds Pride is particularly special to me, as I’m lucky enough to call Leeds my home. I can’t wait to get back up on that stage and party with the crowd - expect a big show and eat ready to sing along!"
