Lucy Woodward (b. October 27, 1977) is a singer/songwriter commonly known for the Top 40 hit "Dumb Girls", released in February 2003. After the single's release, Woodward toured around the world in support of her debut album 'While You Can' (2003). Soon after, Atlantic Records merged and dropped many mid-level artists from their label, including Woodward.
However, there is life after labels. In 2005, Woodward won a BMI Pop Award for writing the hit single "(There's Gotta Be) More to Life" featured on Stacie Orrico's self titled album. She also recently appeared on the major motion picture soundtracks 'What a Girl Wants', 'Ice Princess' and collaborated with David Schommer for the song "Don't You (Forget About Me)", featured on the soundtrack for 'Accepted'.
Lucy was born in London, but was raised in Amsterdam and New York City. She has a very musical background: her British father is a composer and conductor and her New Yorker mother is a musicologist and an opera singer. Lucy attended a public high school in the Bronx. She started off singing in jazz cafes and singing for tips or dinner. "You sing with a piano player and a tip jar on top of the piano," she said in an interview on NZGirl.
Lucy has finished work on her first independent album, 'Hot and Bothered'. As of March 2007, a release date has not yet been announced. She is performing the 'Hot and Bothered' sessions on tour during Summer 2007 in NYC.
