Born on June 28, 1989, Lucy Rose is an English singer and songwriter from Warwickshire. Her musical origins started when she played drums for her school orchestra while Rose’s songwriting began when she wrote tunes on their home piano. Rose is the youngest of three sisters and claims that she was not even the most musical one in the family. Her first try at songwriting was when she wrote an ode to her sick dog when she was 14 years old. She got disappointed when her pianist older sister showed dissatisfaction with the song by stating that it needed a key change. This resulted in her purchasing a guitar from the store she would pass by from school. She taught herself how to play the instrument and says that it made her feel different and free from her musically inclined family.
Rose’s musical journey didn’t start until when she was 18 and took a train to London. She was supposed to study geography at University College London but instead decided to work on her musical career. Rose started performing and experimenting with other local musicians when she became friends with Bombay Bicycle Club’s front man, Jack Steadman. With her guitar and strong dedication, Rose regularly went to open-mic nights where she was able to meet people who supported her craft and her dream.
Steadman later asked Rose to do vocals on a song he had written and was currently recording. The collaboration lead to Bombay Bicycle Club’s acoustic album Flaws that featured Steadman on lead vocals and Rose on back up. This paved the way for Rose’s musical career.
