The Song - Graveyard

Not sure how I stumbled across Lucy Schwartz, but she is amazing. After checking her "About" page on her website, I fell in love with her even more:


• Lucy has a new EP, “Keep Me”, out now!

• Lucy is also working on a full-length album, due 2012. The album has a name, but I won’t tell you yet, because surprises make life fun!

• Lucy likes to write about herself in a well-organized-bullet-point-factual-fashion and she tends to refer to herself in the 3rd person. Yes, Lucy does.

• When Lucy was 18 years old and still in high school, she had her first opportunity to write for a movie; it was a Meg Ryan film, The Women. The two songs Lucy wrote, “Count on Me” and “Beautiful” were chosen for the opening and closing scenes of the movie.

Since then, Lucy has written original songs for numerous films:

• Most recently, she co-wrote a duet called “Cold” with British artist Aqualung, for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 1.

• Lucy is a Twilight/fantasy nerd and very excited about the fact listed above this fact.

• Lucy also penned “Darling I Do”, the love-song for Shrek 4, with Landon Pigg; wrote original songs for the movies Mother & Child and Post Grad; and had music featured in the movie Adam and a multitude of television shows. Plus, Lucy wrote the international theme song for Parenthood.

• You know the silly British voice that sings “Mr. F” and “For British Eyes Only” on the show Arrested Development? That voice is none other than the fake-British-chanteuse of Ms. Schwartz herself.

• Lucy toured with Lilith Fair & sang on stage alongside Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, and Colbie Caillat. She has opened for The Civil Wars, Moby, The Weepies, Brandi Carlile, Agnes Obel, The Belle Brigade, A Fine Frenzy, and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

• Lucy Performed “Darling I Do” on Jay Leno’s Tonight Show.

• Last summer, she did a series of shows with a string quartet & called it “Lucy Schwartz & The Heartstrings”. She recorded one of the shows and is now giving away the live recordings for FREE on her website. (How nice of her!)

• Lucy is also dedicated to making the world a better place through music: she has worked with CHOC Children’s hospital, Rock n Roll Camp for Girls, WriteGirl, Songs of Love for Japan and Symphony of Hope: The Haiti Project. She also teamed up with Charity Water & connected her underwater “Life in Letters” music video to the important issue of clean water.

• Lucy is 22 years old but has the memory of a 97-year-old

• She is afraid of butterflies and often terrified by movies that are spoofs of scary movies.

• She does NOT like olives.

And now that you have fallen in love with Luc as much as I have, you might also like her music:

Until next time :)
