Lauren Emily Rycroft is a 21 year old singer/songwriter who plays her unique combination of achingly beautiful guitar and dark, honest lyrics throughout the UK.
She joined us to play the festival in 2017.
2016 saw Lauren support artists on tour such as Newton Faulkner and Janet Devlin, perform at festivals like Dot to Dot, Live at Leeds & Tramlines, be invited on her own tour with Coffee House Sessions (following in the footsteps of the likes of Nina Nesbitt, The Shires & Luke Sital-Singh), and receive national BBC radio play and her own live BBC Introducing sessions in Leeds, Nottingham and Lincoln.
The end of 2016 saw Lauren embark upon her own headline UK tour with her backing band, supporting her self released 6 track debut EP titled “Tide of the Mind” – produced at the legendary 2fly studios (Arctic Monkeys, Pulp, The Long Blondes).
The EP has been a resounding success with her songs being played on all 39 BBC stations across the UK and the EP being picked by BBC’s Melvyn Prior as his “Album of the week”, the first unsigned act to be chosen by him.
