Lucy Woodward made her first impression on the national scene with her 2003 debut album While You Can and her bubbly pop hit "Dumb Girls." But her musical heart lies in the soulful authenticity of classic jazz, swing, R&B and Latin music, and it's those influences that form the basis of her approach on Hooked!

"Ragdoll" MP3 widget:

"As you get older and make more music, you gain a better understanding of who you are and what you need to feel satisfied," Woodward states. "That's what this record is for me."

Hooked! was produced largely by veteran studio legend Tony Visconti (David Bowie, T. Rex, Paul McCartney, Morrissey), with additional tracks produced by Justin Stanley (Nikka Costa, Eric Clapton) and longtime Woodward collaborators Tim K. (Les Nubians, Colette, Esthero) and Itaal Shur (Groove Collective, Santana).

"Lucy's a ball, equally appreciable for fans of melodic sing-along baubles and highbrow aficionados of finely honed musical composition." - Billboard

Hooked! is out now on Verve Records.
