Lucy Grimble Addresses the Issue of Forgiveness in "Shedding Skin"

Lucy Grimble

Lucy Grimble unveils her second single, "Shedding Skin," an honest song prompted by the common human experience of self-reflection and the need to change. Inspired by a personal situation demanding forgiveness, this song doesn't shy away from the torment of bitterness and points to the beauty of choosing to bear God's image in the face of pain.

Finding a space between the hauntingly honest lyricism of Fiona Apple and an ethereal sonic backdrop echoing Radiohead, "Shedding Skin" is a moody, spiritual walk towards the Light. Lucy crafted her own sounds (vocal FX) and used a lot of synths to create a sense of discordance and texture.

The song reflects on scriptural passages about pouring new wine into new wineskins (Mark 2:22, Matthew 9:17, Luke 5:36,) as well as John 12's story of the seed needing to die to multiply. "Shedding Skin" hones in on discipleship by asking the hard questions that lead towards growth, encouraging listeners that the wrestle to let go and surrender is always more than rewarded by the new life that God will bring. 

Based in London, UK, Lucy Grimble has been crafting songs for as long as she can remember and leading worship for the last 10 years in the UK and beyond.

Having been immersed in music from a young age (she started the piano at age 4 and was brought up on a healthy diet of classical and orchestral music,) Lucy discovered songwriting in her teens. Her musical inspiration is eclectic - expanding from soul, gospel and RnB, to jazz, classical, and singer-songwriter. The diversity in her musical backbone resulted in a blended sound, creating an expression that is unafraid to colour outside of the lines.

Lucy's heart is to be vulnerable and real - sharing her journey of faith with honesty. She mainly writes within the Christian market, spanning personal reflective songs as well as congregational Church songs. She has released several singles, recorded three albums as well as an EP to date. She has also featured on several other albums, putting collaboration at the heart of what she does. As an artist, Lucy is passionate about musical excellence and creativity in worship and has, over the years, gathered a talented team of musicians, singers, and producers around her to create songs that reflect her multifaceted expression.
