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.

    I have read several long books, but one series I quite enjoyed years ago was the Daughters of the Moon series (I have the first six stories in two books) by  Lynne Ewing who in which come to a total of 1,655 pages. Other than that, I really enjoyed Witch World by Christopher Pike with 521 pages, The Help by Kathryn Stockett with 522 pages, and hands down, Grave Mercy by  Robin LaFevers with 566 pages.

    I'm slowly but surely working on Never Always Sometimes by Adi Alsaid and The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes by Arthur Conan Doyle (yes, still).
