Lulu: All About The Music

Lulu returns to the stage following the tremendous success of her 2016 tour. “All About The Music” is her biggest tour yet.

Singer-songwriter and Grammy Award-nominee Lulu delivers a full show of her hits as well as new songs.

The Scottish singer returned to the touring scene in 2016 after 15 years, and is ready to get back on the road this fall.

Lulu Kennedy-Cairns, better known as Lulu, has been in the entertainment business for more than four decades.

Lulu was signed to Decca records in 1964 under the mentorship of Marion Massey. She was just 15 years of age at the time of her first record deal. She first reached success with the song “Shout,” a remake of the Isley Brothers’ song.

Following the success of the single, her next three singles failed to chart. In 1965, she released “Leave A Little Love,” which was a top 10 hit in the UK. “Try to Understand,” her next single, reached the Top 30.

Lulu toured with the Hollies in Poland in 1966, and she was the original English female singer to appear on Iron Curtain. She recorded two German tracks that year.

In 1966, Lulu joined Columbia Records. Her album was produced by Mickie Most. It took just a year before she returned to the UK charts in 1967 with the single “The Boat That I Row,” which was written by Neil Diamond.

The singer made her acting debut in 1967 with the film To Sir, with Love. She acted in the film and sang the title song. The track was a hit in the United states, peaking at the number one spot.

Lulu transitioned to television in the late 1960s.

In 1970, she began appearing on Pop Go the Sixties. She recorded an album in the U.S. that year, called Melody Fair. The single “Oh Me Oh My” was a top 30 hit in the U.S.

Lulu’s success dwindled in the 1980s, but she was still in the public eye. She hosted a radio show and continued her acting career. She made a comeback in the 1990s with the song “Independence,” which peaked at #11 on the UK Singles Chart.

In the 2000s, Lulu started going by Lulu Kennedy-Cains. She was awarded an OBE by the Queen herself.

Lulu’s latest album Making Life Rhyme was released in 2015, and spawned the singles “Faith in You” and “Cry.” She also did another remake of the song “Shout.”
