I first encountered Lucy Ward on a stag-do. Not what you might think as thankfully it was at the wonderful Priddy Folk Festival in 2011 when she managed the feat of standing out from all the other excellent performers (and not just for her striking blue hair!). Her wonderful voice, humour and presence stuck with me so when I saw a new album was on the way I placed a pre-order. Then the reviews started to come in and they promised good things but in my mind they are almost understated. This is a beautiful album that draws the listener in and stops you in your tracks to sit back and listen. I have had it on repeat since unpacking to on Saturday (now Monday) and am finding new nuances with each listen. Perfect, and hopefully there is much more to come.

Format: Audio CD
This is a remarkably good album. Lucy Ward writes and sings original and very good songs which have real musical and lyrical substance and are also very good to listen to. Some, like For The Dead Men, have direct and stark political lyrics rather like the young, angry Billy Bragg. Others - Icarus, Honey and Velvet Sky among them - deal with relationships and more personal matters and are very beautiful, and some, like The Last Pirouette, are surreal and allusive but are no less powerful. There are also some strong echoes of traditional English folk in places, including a couple of traditional songs. It's excellent, varied material and it has a real depth to it.

Lucy Ward has a fine voice and can put over a song with genuine passion and emotion. Personally, I love hearing her strong Derbyshire vowels and am delighted that she hasn't adopted the bland, mid-Atlantic performing accent which is so prevalent in the pop world. She's a good guitarist and the production here is excellent; it is quite rich at times but always to the service of the song, and it allows the material to really shine.

I think this is an album of real quality, and it's one which I will be playing and enjoying for many years, I think. Very strongly recommended.

I have seen Lucy Ward twice now, once at Priddy Festival and most recently at a Folk Festival in Bracknell. Both times her onstage presence was amazing and her music spellbinding...I have had this album on repeat ever since buying it. I love The Last Pirouette, Icarus and For the Dead Men. Buy this album, you will not be disappointed. :)

I bought his for my husband's birthday, but I am a fan too. Had a couple of listens before seeing her live for the second time, and whilst I love Last Pirouette, For the Dead Men and Marching Through the Green Grass on the album, her live version of Shellback, with no other accompaniment other than her guitar was spine-tingling. She is a chatty, friendly and passionate musician, and should go further.

What a superb album. In the first line of the first song there is a reference to Melanie Safka. And indeed in Icarus you sense a strong similarity between Lucy Ward's voice and that of Melanie. But only a similarity. Lucy Ward's voice, her song-writing and her singing are both stronger and deeper than those of her illustrious predecessor. In The Consequence there are echoes of Emily Portman while The Last Pirouette is particularly haunting. Overall you are left wondering just how good Lucy Ward can be.
