"I'm really excited to be working with Columbia, it is such a respected label with an incredible heritage," Spraggan said.

"To be signed to the company who have worked with great icons like Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen and the newer generation of artists like Calvin Harris and Rita Ora is amazing - I can't wait!"

Co-president of Columbia Alison Donald added: "Lucy is a refreshingly honest and naturally gifted storyteller who walks to the beat of her own drum.

"Her songwriting very much fits in with the tradition and artistry of the Columbia ethos, and we are absolutely delighted to have her on board."
