For her much-anticipated second album (the follow up to the 2011 début Adelphi Has To Fly), the 23-year old singer, guitarist, ukulele and concertina player Lucy Ward delivers a finely tuned synthesis of original and traditionally arranged material. Production is again by Stu Hanna (of acclaimed folk duo Megson, both of whom also sing and play here).

There, however, the similarities end as the new album - "Single Flame" - finds Lucy organically broadening her musical palette whilst remaining firmly rooted in a folk tradition that gives shape and form to her sound. Balancing the contemporary and the traditional is never an easy act to achieve but Lucy does it with a natural gift and flair.

Her songwriting creates the kind of original songs that you think you've heard somewhere before ? on an old folk recording or the radio; a testament to the quality of her lyrics, melodies and 'hooks'.

Collectively, the songs here showcase Lucy Ward's consummate performance and creative songwriting abilities, her genuine and sparkling personality and stunning voice. The new album "Single Flame" is a shining statement of how far her talent has grown and developed in such a short time.
