Lucy Wroe Music
|Victoria Hall Sutton Scotney is probably not the first place most people would consider for making a music video but former resident of Sutton Scotney Lucy Wroe, now an accomplished singer, songwriter and musician chose to come home. We're proud to have helped her and here is the story.
London based singer-songwriter and performer, Lucy Wroe has been developing her sound as a musician since the age of 10, when she first learnt how to play the guitar. Blossoming with poised vocals, groovy drum rhythm and whimsical charm, Wroe’s naturally laid-back sound is best described as jazz-infused indie-pop.
Following her debut release in 2020, Wroe’s songwriting has really taken shape, by combining the melodic work from early female songwriters and the modern jazz and electronic production of Lianne La Havas and Jessie Ware; painting in new colours to establish her exclusive sound.
Backed by a drummer, bassist and guitarist, the Winchester born artist explores the passion of a new relationship, the complexity of commitment and how this drives us towards self-reflection in the new EP Same World. The third song on this EP, ‘Closer To Home’ was recently partnered with an official music video filmed at the Victoria Hall in Sutton Scotney where Lucy grew up through almost all of her childhood. The song represents the end of a relationship as two people dance around the inevitable conclusion that is parting ways. Because of this feeling, the video centres around two people dancing in an empty space. Using the Victoria Hall felt perfect due to the emotional connection Lucy has with the area and because the song itself is focused around that idea of ‘home’ and finding a place in the world be that alone, or alongside another.
Eluned Owen and Kirra Littleford choreographed and performed the dance, with videography and production by Tony Palmer.
