Building on the momentum of a critically embraced EP and appearances on the Tonight Show and the Lilith Tour, Lucy Schwartz will release LIFE IN LETTERS on September 28, 2010.

Life in Letters establishes Schwartz as a major talent, big and bright and bursting with energy.

LA Weekly called her arrangements "smart; she brings 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."

In addition to performing on Lilith, Schwartz has been playing numerous dates in NYC, L.A., has been asked to open for the Weepies in October and will celebrate the release of her album at Bardot, in Hollywood, CA, on September 27. (See dates below.)

Although the 20 year-old face of Lucy Schwartz may be new to some, many 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.

The first single from the album is "Graveyard". While conceiving the video, Lucy, who has studied dance and movement, happened to be watching an episode of the show So You Think You Can Dance, marveling at the work of choreographer Sonya Tayeh. The next day she wrote Tayeh, a complete stranger, and asked her to work on "Graveyard". She accepted, and now Schwartz uses her moves in the clip, twirling and jumping through a smoke-machine haze. "I like to have everything just the way I'd imagined it, from the artwork to the visuals to the songs," says Schwartz.

Lucy Schwartz is an emerging artist who uses her imagination to deeply engage with the world. And Life in Letters challenges that world to engage with her the same way. True, you already knew that voice. But thanks to Life in Letters, you'll now remember her name.
