With a flurry of singles over the last few years, which have gone onto amass more than 11.5 million streams online, received national radio play, and found support from a plethora of online tastemakers, emerging Irish singer and songwriter Lucy McWilliams will follow up her recent release ‘The Woman In Me’ (demo) with a brand new offering – ‘Medication’ (demo) on June 10th. https://bfan.link/medication-demo
Following her ground-breaking performances at both the Dublin and Brighton legs of The Great Escape last month, ‘Medication’(demo) continues the sweet and alluring direction she has been exploring of late. Stripped back to just a humbly-played piano and her own soaring voice, this new release highlights the raw and heartfelt song writing she is quickly earning a reputation for.
Speaking about the new release, she said, “Losing someone who struggled all their life with mental health issues is a very hard thing to come to terms with, but I feel like unfortunately there are a lot of people who have gone through the same experience. Like most musicians, I write music and lyrics to help me cope with things that are happening in my life. In writing ‘Medication’, it helped me try to understand where that person might have been to make them feel like this was their only option.”
