About Lucy Spraggan
Besting thousands of other contestants, English singer-songwriter Lucy Spraggan was the 2011 runner-up in the Urban, Pop & Acoustic category of the UK competition Live and Unsigned.
∙ In 2012, Spraggan’s audition video for The X Factor went viral, propelling her independently released debut, Top Room at the Zoo, to No. 22 on the UK albums chart.
∙ Quirky performances—and her original song “Tea and Toast”—quickly made her a fan favorite on The X Factor, but she had to bow out of the competition due to illness.
∙ Her major-label debut and first release following her stint on The X Factor was 2013’s Join the Club, which reached No. 7 on the UK charts.
∙ “Stick the Kettle On,” a soaring, piano-flecked track from her 2019 album, Today Was a Good Day, is a collaboration with Scouting for Girls frontman Roy Stride.
