Lucy Woodward – Stories From The Dust

Stories From the Dust

Lucy Woodward will release her 7th studio album, Stories From The Dust.” She recently released the latest single “City Girls.”

Perhaps Woodward’s most personal album yet, “Stories From The Dust” was crafted with GRAMMY Award-winning co-producer and co-writer David Garza (Fiona Apple, Gaby Moreno) at the helm of most of the songs on the album. Its tracks and melodies pull you toward Lucy’s poignant insights of matters of the heart in the world’s fragile present. David and Lucy spent several weeks in downtown LA writing these stories about women, the ones she grew up with—the fiercely independent and unconventional women who raised her—and those she merely observed from afar, whether in the sandbox or on the subway. Lucy soon found herself writing songs like she’d never written before, or had never even thought about writing before. Lucy says, “a different kind of songwriter in me snuck up on me and hit me hard.”

Recorded at Sonic Ranch on the border of Mexico and Texas, Dust features longtime friend and bass extraordinaire Tim Lefebvre (David Bowie, Rudder, Tedeschi Trucks) and keyboardist Larry Goldings (James Taylor, Maceo Parker, John Mayer) who wrote with Lucy for the album. Bill Withers and Nina Simone — a few artists she already loved — were her touchstones, and she added inspiration from the deep rivers of Americana, blues, flamenco singing and the sounds of the female voices from Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66. “Stories From The Dust” is rootsy and melodic, continuing a decades-long streak of craft oriented, critically acclaimed full length albums from the New York native.
