Lucy Schwartz to release album


Her latest CD, Life in Letters, introduces the new 20 year-old face of Lucy Schwartz, but listeners may already know her voice. Rich and dreamy and all lit up in Technicolor, it’s graced movie theaters and TV sets across the country. “Darling I Do,” is one example: Lucy created the love theme to Shrek Forever After and performed the song with her co-writer Landon Pigg on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. The L.A.-based singer-songwriter has also written for numerous films including Mother & Child, Post Grad, Adam, and the The Women and her songs have been featured in more than a dozen hit television shows. Schwartz also sang the hilariously campy jingles “Mister F” and “For British Eyes Only” on Arrested Development,

Now, Life in Letters establishes Lucy Schwartz as a major talent, big and bright and bursting with energy. LA Weekly called her arrangements smart, bringing a spectacular whimsy to everything she does, adding ukulele or a capella harmonies where you’d least expect them, cranking up every emotion into surround sound. There’s so much joie de vivre in her music, she’s written no less than two songs – “Graveyard” and “Shadow Man” – about what it takes to feel truly alive. “I feel like I’m always asking myself, ‘Am I living a fulfilling life? Am I making the most of my time?’” says Schwartz
