South-African singer, songwriter and composer Lucy Krugersigned deals with both, Schubert Music Publishingas well as with Unique Records. Kruger, who moved from Cape Town to Berlin last year, has been the talk of the international singer-/songwriter- and folk scenes for quite a while already.

Afterwards, Lucy Kruger will be on tour throughout Germany alongside her Lost Boys, for e.g. in Duisburg, Duesseldorf, Hamburg, Leipzig and Berlin.
Lucy Kruger, Ina Schulz (CEO, Unique Records) and Thomas Thyssen (A+R Manager / Head Of Berlin Office, Schubert Music Publishing) recently met up in Berlin, to seal the double deal.
Lucy Kruger:„I feel very lucky to be working with Ina and Thomas from Unique Records and Schubert Music Publishing. I moved to Berlin from South Africa a year ago in hope of finding a space and support for my songs and couldn’t be happier with how it’s worked out. I feel safe and understood and ready to work very hard.“
Ina Schulz (CEO, Unique Records):„Lucy’s psychedelic folk and her strong live presence have left an immediate impression on us and are a perfect fit to bring even more life to a very old facet of our label. Namely to support the artists not only because of a certain genre, but also because of their soul and attitude. We are delighted to welcome Lucy to the Unique family and are proud to share her wonderful album with the world.”
Thomas Thyssen (A+R Manager / Head Of Berlin Office, Schubert Music Publishing):„It was by total conincidence that I stumbled upon Lucy and her solo-material. I was mesmerized by her creativity from the get-go, thoroughly impressed by her lyrical and singing talent, but most of all by her artistic identity and her personality. Therefore it was a complete no-brainer to get involved on the publishing-side of things. Schubert Music Publishing is very pleased to welcoming Lucy Kruger & The Lost Boys.“
