Vocally Blending Soul, Pop and Jazz
The Pacific Jazz Institute at Dimitriou?s Jazz Alley presents vocalist Lucy Woodward for one night only, touring in support of her new release Hooked
!. her 3rd album
12-song album emotional depth, organic musicality and personally-charged tunes will come as a revelation to listeners who are only familiar with Woodward via her 2003 pop hit ?Dumb Girls.? Seamlessly drawing from a deep well of vintage jazz, swing, R&B and Latin music influences
, Hooked! marks Woodward as an effortlessly engaging, deeply expressive vocalist, an insightful, disarmingly witty songwriter, and distinctive, charismatic interpreter of outside material.
Woodward?s formidable songwriting talents animate the slyly swinging ?He Got Away,? the tongue-in-cheek, yet direct ?Babies,? the bittersweet breakup song ?Purple Heart,? the liltingly blue ?Slow Recovery? and the playfully humorous ?Too Much to Live For.? Another highlight is the breezily elegant ?Another Woman,? especially written for Lucy by admirer Nellie McKay, who lends her harmony vocals to the track. Woodward?s interpretive gifts are also showcased on her hauntingly seductive reading of the obscure Peggy Lee number ?Sans Souci,? her poignant take on Hoagy Carmichael?s 1930s pop standard ?Stardust,? and a rousing rendition of ?I Wan?na Be Like You (The Monkey Song),? originally sung by Louis Prima in Disney?s The Jungle Book, and a tune that Woodward has been singing since her teens.
Hooked! is both a dynamic creative reinvention and a compelling return to Woodward?s musical roots.
The child of a composer/conductor father and an opera singer/musicologist/teacher/belly dancer mother
Lucy was born in London and spent part of her early childhood in Amsterdam, before moving with her parents to New York at the age of 5. Growing up in the cultural melting pot of the Bronx, she absorbed a range of musical styles, from salsa to house music.
In addition to working on her own albums, Woodward has also kept busy with a variety of extracurricular activities. Her song ?There?s Gotta Be More To Life? earned her a BMI Songwriter?s Award, and she?s contributed songs to several film soundtracks, including the recent Sandra Bullock hit The Blind Side.
She?s also devoted considerable energy to several charitable projects, making multiple trips to Africa on behalf of relief organizations, singing for Bishop Desmond Tutu at a benefit for his foundation in Dallas and performing with Carole King
at another benefit in New York. www.lucywoodward.com
