Lucy Schwartz: What A Year She’s Having!

Things are definitely looking up for relative newcomer Lucy Schwartz. The brunette beauty, still only twenty years old, has already toured with Lilith Fair and performed on “The Tonight Show”. Her “Graveyard” video just won “The Freshmen” at mtvU (putting it in regular rotation at mtvU!), she’s recorded a song for the movie “Shrek Forever After” (as well as other movies and television shows), and the New York Post has predicted that she’ll be a Grammy contender for “Best New Artist” in 2011 for her new album “Life in Letters” (just released!).

Wow. I’m exhausted just reading about it!

After reading all of that, I bet you want to check out her tunes, don’t you? Do it. You won’t be disappointed. I think her voice is like buttah; if you need a comparison, I’d say she is a little Feist-ish, though I read somewhere that she has been compared to Sara Bareilles too.

Before “Life in Letters”, Lucy released (in January) her “Help Me! Help Me!” EP. Here are her videos for “Help Me! Help Me!” and “Gravity”:

In addition to her music being fantastic in itself, her videos are feasts for the eyes as well.

Tell you what: go to her gorgeous official website, scroll down a bit, and click to get a free “Graveyard” mp3! (You’re welcome!) The video page on her website also has a one minute-long video about her photo shoot for the “Life in Letters” cover art, which I found very cool.

A perfect opportunity to interact with Lucy is coming up tomorrow (Wednesday). She is performing “Graveyard” live on ustream (click here to bookmark it!) at 4 p.m. Pacific (that’s 7 p.m. for you folks in the Eastern time zone, 6 p.m for me in the Central time zone!). After she performs, she’ll be answering questions and chatting live.

I can tell you one thing: she’s got an enthusiastic new fan in me, and I bet when you check her out, you’ll feel exactly the same!

    That’s quite the resume for someone who’s only twenty….

    I love her, too. That song she did with Landon Pigg (also love!) from the last Shrek Movie was SO sweet! Exited to hear her new stuff.
