Lucy Ward hits the spot with her stunning new album. The follow up to 'Single Flame' fulfils all its promise and marks her down as a genuine contender. Derby’s Lucy Ward made quite a mark on the folk scene with her 2011 debut, ‘Adelphi Has To Fly’ back in 2011. Bagging the Horizon Award for best newcomer at the 2012 Folk Awards clearly gave her the confidence and impetus which resulted in the marvellous ‘Single Flame’ to the extent that her third album is one of those deserving of the label ‘eagerly anticipated’. Mike Ainscoe gives it the once over. Not to put too fine a point on it, ‘Single Flame’ was a stunning album, showing a remarkable development in both songwriting and Lucy Ward’s confident and assured recorded performance.
