Her first album, While You Can was released on April 1, 2003 through Atlantic Records. The follow-up, Lucy Woodward Is…Hot and Bothered was released exclusively on iTunes in 2007, and received a physical retail release on July 29, 2008 through an exclusive deal with Barnes & Noble.

Her third album, Hooked was released on June 15, 2010 through Verve Records. Lucy Woodward 12-song album’s emotional depth, organic musicality and personally-charged songcraft are a revelation to listeners who are only familiar with Woodward via her 2003 pop hit “Dumb Girls”. Seamlessly drawing from a deep well of jazz and pop influences, Hooked marks Woodward as an effortlessly engaging, deeply expressive vocalist, an insightful, disarmingly witty songwriter, and distinctive, charismatic interpreter of outside material.

Woodward’s formidable songwriting talents animate slyly swinging “He Got Away,” the bittersweet breakup song “Purple Heart,” the liltingly blue “Slow Recovery” and the playfully humorous “Too Much To Live For.” Another highlight is the breezily elegant “Another Woman,” especially written for Lucy by admirer Nellie McKay, who lends her harmony vocals to the track. Woodward’s interpretive gifts are also showcased on her hauntingly seductive reading of the obscure Peggy Lee number “Sans Souci,” her poignant take on Hoagy Carmichael’s 1930s pop standard “Stardust,” and a rousing rendition of “I Wan’na Be Like You (The Monkey Song),” originally sung by Louis Prima in Disney’s The Jungle Book, and a tune that Woodward has been singing since her teens.
