In a musical world that seems ever more dictated by fad and fashion, driven by bluster and bombast, concerned with big statements and immediate responses, it is reassuring to know that there are still artists unaffected by such concerns. Lucy Kitchen is everything that the usual modern approach is not. Her songs are deft and delicate, built on clean-limbed and gentle lines and embellished with only the absolutely essential sonic details. Beats are minimal, textures subtly woven and the music feels nothing more than gossamer and smoke-like layers skilfully interlaced to maintain a musical weightlessness.

With two previous albums released on her label “Bohemia Rose Records”, and recent releases on RE:WARM Records on the Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Vol. 2 album with her song “Olivia” and the newly released “Milk & Honey” on Sounds of Southampton Vol. 3 she released “The Stabal Sessions” EP in December – her first longer release since her album “Sun to My Moon” was released in 2017.

Featuring 4 tracks, 1 from her previous album “Sun to My Moon” and 3 new songs,each song on the EP reflects the emotional depth and introspective lyricism that Lucy Kitchen has become known for. From the opening track “Blue Light” which has elements of Americana with slide guitar and haunting vocal harmonies to the heartbreaking “Chemo Song – Sleeping Song”. A sonic tapestry of melancholic melodies, captivating vocals and personal storytelling, this recording marks her first musical project since the loss of her husband to cancer last year. Recorded live at Stabal Music in May ’23 the EP serves as an exploration of Lucy’s journey through loss, capturing the vulnerability of her live performances.

In the search for touchstones she is often compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell, Beth Orton and, vocally, to Sandy Denny – ‘Lucy’s vocal tone has hints of the late Sandy Denny in it – a rare and precious thing indeed’ (
