Biography

London, England (2003 – present)

Lucy Woodward (born October 27, 1977, in London, England) is a singer-songwriter who had a hit in February 2003 with Dumb Girls. In 2005 she won a BMI Pop Award for writing Stacie Orrico’s single More to Life. Lucy has released 3 studio albums, “While You Can” (2003), “Lucy Woodward Is…Hot & Bothered” (2007) and “Hooked!” (2010).

Lucy was born in London, but was raised in Amsterdam and New York City. She has a very musical background: her British father is a composer and conductor and her New Yorker mother is a musicologist and an opera singer.

Raised on classical and Middle-Eastern music, Lucy studied piano and flute before asking for singing lessons at age 12. She attended a Bronx high school renowned for its music department and made her first recordings singing house music in her friends’ basements. She spent part of each summer in music camp and part in Holland, where she frequently locked herself up in her father’s studio and listened to jazz and old R&B records. At 16 she was accepted into the Manhattan School of Music to study jazz, but after a year decided to learn her songwriting and performing skills on her own. She spent the next few years performing in swing-organ trios, working as a session singer, waiting tables, and singing jazz standards in Greenwich Village restaurants. She started off singing in jazz cafes and singing for tips or dinner. “You sing with a piano player and a tip jar on top of the piano.” She said in an interveiw on NZGirl.
