Lucy Rose: Midnight Chats Podcast – Episode 31

Grab the travel tissues - this is a heart-warming one

In the middle of a crap year, Lucy Rose did something life-altering. Feeling disillusioned and doubtful about her place in music, in 2016 the songwriter decided to do something radical. It came at a time, when, in her own words, she’d “forgotten why I got into music in the first place.”

In a bid to remind herself she made contact with fans in towns and cities across South America and asked if she could come and visit. In exchange for a bed for the night and some dinner, she’d play a free show in their local town – that meant playing gigs in places rarely visited by most UK touring acts (Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay).

She blogged the whole experience, and also made a short documentary about it all (Something’s Changing – the same name as her latest album).

In this latest episode of Midnight Chats she talks about the lasting, profound and faith-restoring impact of the experience.

If that all sounds a bit too heart-warming. There was still time for chat about Kiefer Sutherland and why she hates birthday cards.

Listen back to past episodes of Midnight Chats with guests including Loyle Carner, Angel Olsen, Toddla T, Mac DeMarco, Ryan Adams, Laura Marling, Mike Skinner and loads of others. We publish a new episode each fortnight at midnight on a Thursday.
