Lucy Michelle in Hollywood Feb. 6 & 20

To work out material for her forthcoming debut solo record Attack of the Heart (due out Spring 2013), Lucy Michelle, the charismatic and fire-throated lead-singer of Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles, is preparing for the final dates of her February 2013 west coast tour, including two remaining shows at her residency at Los Angeles' Hotel Café. On February 27, Lucy will also play a show at the Largo in Los Angeles, accompanying The New Standards, Dan Wilson, John C. Reilly, and more. For a full itinerary of Lucy Michelle's upcoming shows, see below.

At 25, Lucy Michelle is a songwriter as serious as they come. Twin Cities natives will know her as frontwoman of gypsy-pop outfit Lucy Michelle and the Velvet Lapelles, a raucous and eclectic six-piece. At home and on the road, Lucy has stood boldly amidst that chugging whirlwind of cello and accordion, stomping her foot and singing out fiercely over the top of it all. It's a collaboration five years strong whose catalog reveals an artist developing not only her craft, but also personally. Through songs of adventure, love and reflection Lucy has shared an evolving understanding of herself and her values. It's a process that in 2012 led Lucy, after becoming happily married, to write a batch of songs more deeply personal than any she'd written before. The result is Attack of the Heart, Lucy Michelle's first ever solo album. Enlisting the help of Minneapolis music icons John Munson (Semisonic, The New Standards) and Chan Polling (The Suburbs, The New Standards), Lucy set out to create an American pop gem. While a life of music on the road may have prepared her to give a nod to what has come before but she's clearly now more than the sum of her influences. With Attack of the Heart Lucy Michelle emerges as a true American artist, and once again lets us all in on the adventure.
