We say

Continuing our Ones To Watch 2024 is an artist that should be familiar to regular readers. We first featured Dublin-born, Berlin-educated and London-based artist Lucy McWilliams in 2020 with the gorgeous slice of soulful pop ‘Runaway’. Since then, we have watched her grow in confidence as she released a string of singles showcasing her beautiful vocals against various soundscapes that touched on expansive indie, slinky R&B, swaying acoustic pop, and ’90s romcom-style rock. Her latest offering, ‘Follow Me’, sees her bring in the New Year with a rich and heartfelt ode tinged with nostalgic indie notes. Along the way, she has amassed over 16m streams on Spotify alone, featured on editorial playlists at Spotify and Apple Music and been played on Radio 1 and Irish radio. Tastemaker support has come from Clash, Hotpress, Earmilk, Wonderland, Vanyaland and more. Having supported Two Door Cinema Club in Ireland last year and played various shows across London, Lucy will be performing at Servant Jazz Quarters in London on 27 March. What we love about Lucy is her ability to write heartfelt songs and her fearlessness to draw inspiration from a multitude of genres. We reckon 2024 will be a breakout year for the emerging artist.
