Lucy Dacus will return to the UK in October for a run of her biggest European headline shows to date, culminating in a London appearance at Islington Assembly Hall on October 31. Ahead of that, Dacus will be making appearances at Green Man and End Of The Road festivals in August.
An opportunity to see this rising musician and arresting storyteller at work, Dacus’ sold-out headline London show in April at Omeara was described by The Times as “… making any poetic moments seem effortless”, and "... the joy of this sold-out concert lay in the unforced way in which Dacus brought her songs to life."The 22-year-old Richmond, Virginia singer and songwriters' latest album, and Matador debut, Historian, was one of 2018 most memorable and affecting LP’s.
"This is the album I needed to make," says Dacus, who views Historian as her definitive statement as a songwriter and musician. "Everything after this is a bonus." And it is indeed a remarkably assured 10-track album that finds her unafraid to take on the big questions — the life-or-death reckonings, and the ones that just feel that way. It's a record full of bracing realizations, tearful declarations and moments of hard-won peace, expressed in lyrics that feel destined for countless yearbook quotes and first tattoos.
