To get to know the artists that I review better, I sometimes ask them some questions. This is Lucy Aggett’s short story on where she finds her inspiration and what her ten favourite songs are! I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did and if you like what you read, you might also like the lovely Lucy. You can follow her on Facebook and Spotify!
Where do you find new music and inspiration?
I mainly find new music via Spotify’s Discover Weekly. Some of my favourite artists and songs have been discovered via that platform. I also love discovering local artists through going to or playing at local gigs and venues. I often discover artists through sharing the line-up at a venue with them, and it’s great to connect and have that sense of solidarity with them. I am very passionate about supporting people who do the same things as me. New inspiration comes from everything that surrounds me; nature, world events, and most significantly, my friends and family.
What’s your favourite place to listen to or write music?
I often find myself writing my songs at the end of the day, in my little bedroom, with lots of candles and lights. I find that this is my favourite way to wind down, to process the day, and to relax. I also love to listen to music in my own space, but I love listening to it when travelling on the tube around London as well.
What activity are you unable to do without music?
As I said above, I am completely unable to travel in London without a pair of headphones for company. I find that it calms me down, and helps me switch my mind off, as travelling can sometimes bring anxiety.
