Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys

About: Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys

There are few things as inspiring as pure, unfettered talent in a hard-working, humble artist. Lucy Kruger is one of the few artists on the SA music scene that possesses all of these attributes and it shows in her work.

Originally from Grahamstown, Lucy (now 23) recently arrived in Cape Town after completing her undergraduate degree in Music and her Honours in Drama at Rhodes University, and is set to take the notoriously hardnosed Mother City music scene by storm with her fresh take on indie/alternative rock. Her singular sound is reminiscent of the fearless, female vocals of powerful acts like
Sinéad O’Connor and Dolores O’Riordan from The Cranberries fame and also draws influence from the work of Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush, Alanis Morissette and Tori Amos – culminating in a rich tapestry of skilful, versatile vocals bolstered by soulful melodies.

Lucy has been writing and performing her own material for six plus years and has in the past had the pleasure to open for international act Linton Kwezi Johnson (LKJ), as well as respected local acts such as Josie Field, Wendy Oldfield, Cutting Jade and Shawn Phillips. Since arriving in Cape Town Lucy has treated audiences to foot-tapping performances at the likes of Daddy Longlegs, Alma Café, the Jolly Roger Pastis, Mojos, &Union, Obviouzly Armchair, Cape Quarter Market, Hout Bay Harbour Market, 5 Reyneveld, Aan De Braak and the Barleycorn.

Her debut album ‘Cut those Strings’(produced by Schalk Joubert and engineered by Dave Langemann) , features a host of innovative artists including Inge Beckmann, Schalk Joubert, Kevin Gibson, Melissa Van Der Spuy and Albert Frost, yet remains true to the folk sound her growing fan-base has come to know and love.

Says Lucy of how she came to make music: “I started playing guitar because I wanted to write music. One of the first songs I learnt on the guitar was Joni Mitchell’s ‘A Case of You’. After hearing that song and feeling what it was to play it, I was completely hooked. After setting my heart on music I was constantly reminded (and still am) about how difficult the music industry is. Difficult perhaps, but hopefully not impossible. I want and love it enough to give it (and myself) a fighting chance. I am slowly starting to discover the rules of an industry that ‘has no rules’. It is certainly keeping me on my toes and that is an exciting place to be.”

It is this strong work ethic and drive to succeed that underscores all of Lucy’s endeavours and it set to launch her inimitable sound on the SA music scene.
