As a songwriter, academic and tutor, Lucy has ploughed a uniquely creative furrow through the music industry. 

A queer and care experienced person (CEP), artist and creative practitioner, her work often aims to champion underrepresented communities and talent. 

Lucy has recently graduated from ICMP’s Masters in Songwriting and used her final project to explore her love for musical theatre songwriting, focusing on it as a transformative device for excavating, inquiring upon and reclaiming personal narratives. 

Commenting on her time as an ICMP student, Lucy said:

I love writing music for theatre, and I have always recognised its value culturally, socially and politically, but I didn’t perceive my own creative agendas to hold that level of importance until taking the time to carve them out and sit with them at ICMP."

"Not only this, but being accountable to myself for the duration of my studies increased my confidence and sense of self immeasurably - I would do it all again in a heartbeat!"

Some recent projects include the live Virtual Reality play 'Odyssey', which was co-created by the Plus One young people, and was awarded the Best Digital Production of The Year at The Stage Awards 2023.

She also composed the score for 'The Fossil Kids' at Crucible Theatre earlier in 2023, and a new touring play called 'Bonfire' by Simon Marshall.
