Lucy Dacus has announced her first-ever UK and European solo shows this Spring. She plays Union Chapel in London and CCA in Glasgow on May 1 and 4, respectively, alongside further European dates. Returning to the UK following a sold-out performance at EartH in June, the dates are an opportunity to see one of today’s most captivating and fast-rising singer-songwriters in an unmediated, intimate setting.
The Richmond, VA artist recently added another vital entry to her ever-growing oeuvre with 2019, a dazzling collection of original and cover songs inspired by holidays and notable dates of the year. The EP was met with widespread critical acclaim, with Pitchfork calling the songs “among the best she’s ever written”.
The end of the year saw Dacus’ latest album Historian appear in Best Of The Decade lists by Rolling Stone, NPR, Stereogum, Consequence Of Sound and others, alongside making her inaugural performance on Austin City Limits, and being brought on stage by Lana Del Ray for a joint rendition of her song ‘Night Shift’.
