Lucy Walsh Interview

By: Sindy

Lucy Walsh is the daughter of a rockstar and has been a backup singer for Ashlee Simpson, but now she's stepping out of their shadows by dropping her own album. Check out our one-on-one interview with this rising star!

Sindy: Can you tell me a little about your debut album, Lost in the Lights?
Lucy Walsh: I play classical piano, but I knew I wanted to do a full-on '80s influenced pop record so I took that classical aspect and combined it with '80s synth-pop. Lost in the Lights is a high-energy ride with beautiful classically inspired ballads thrown in.

Sindy: What's your favorite song on the album?
Lucy Walsh: I am ridiculously proud of every song on Lost in the Lights - I had a big hand in writing the record. My favorite song changes daily. Right now I'm super-loving a song called Tell Her. It's very [KWLINK ]dark and twisted[/KWLINK], check it out on Lost in the Lights!

Sindy: When did you first start performing?
Lucy Walsh: I grew up immersed in the performing arts, I danced and performed as a pre-professional ballerina for 10 years. I started performing in the pop world when I played keys/sang backup with Ashlee Simpson on her Autobiography Tour in 2005. It was a blast touring with close friends.

Sindy: Your dad is rocker Joe Walsh, how has music influenced your style?
Lucy Walsh: My dad always told me if I wanted to be a musician he was not going to make any calls or pull any favors to get me a record deal. I thank him for that, because I did the work and here I am! We haven't collaborated musically, our styles are really different. I do pay close attention to his advice though; he is a legend in the music world.

Sindy: What other music influenced you when you were young?
Lucy Walsh: I grew up listening to Cyndi Lauper, Cat Stevens, The Cars, Elvis, The Beach Boys, and tons of classical - Mozart, Handel, Beethoven - you name it! I've been a classical nut my entire life.

Sindy: What are you listening to these days?
Lucy Walsh: These days I have over 5,000 songs on my iPod, I am into all genres of music. Blink-182, Cyndi Lauper and Tori Amos are some of my favorites.
