“The first time I heard her sing, I knew we were born in the same pond.” James Brown
Best known for her iconic recording of “TO SIR WITH LOVE”, LULU, “BRITAIN’S FIRST GREAT ROCK AND SOUL VOICE”, has been internationally famous for 50 years recording classic records like the 1964 Isley Brothers cover Shout, the 1967 number one To Sir With Love and The Boat That I Row which were both performed on the Ed Sullivan show, Morning Dew (made famous by the Grateful Dead) and Best of Both Worlds (both 1968), the 1969 soul stormer Oh Me Oh My (I’m A Fool For You Baby) and Boom Bang-a-Bang, 1974’s Bond theme The Man With The Golden Gun, the Bowie collaboration The Man Who Sold The World, 1981’s “Top 20” hit I Could Never Miss You More Than I Do and even her 1993 smash with the huge British pop band Take That on Dan Hartman’s Relight My Fire.
LULU started young, a 15-year-old Scottish soul sensation. She has been such a fixture of the British entertainment landscape for so long now, she is not simply defined by her musicality. She has sung at the Eurovision, hosted a Saturday night light entertainment TV show, acted in films, theatre and television. “In the beginning, it was never about being famous. I wanted to sing, whether I got paid for it or not.” She seems utterly undimmed by time, slim, vivacious, energetic, with an appealing combination of bright-eyed sprightliness and adult, no-nonsense directness. “I was thrown into this business in my childhood….You think you’re invincible, then crash, it all comes down. I’ve been there, done it but now I’m living in the solution!”
She’s been twice married (the first time, aged 19, to Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees) and twice divorced, enjoyed an infamous encounter with Jimi Hendrix in the Sixties and secret romantic liaison with David Bowie in the Seventies.
Her most recent, self-written album “Making Life Rhyme” (Decca) stands head and shoulders with Lulu’s very best and most loved work.
She performed a successful British tour in 2015, which culminated with a summer packed with festival appearances including the infamous Glastonbury. In 2016, she went back on the road with a 35 date sell out UK tour, which was such a success that a 40 date tour has been booked for 2017 including select dates in the United States.
