Lucie Silvas - born Lucie Joanne Silverman in Kingston-Upon-Thames, London is a British singer and songwriter who has been compared to Delta Goodrem, Alicia Keys and Mariah Carey; quite a league to play in, for sure and probably unfair.
Both her parents are very musical - her mother was an opera singer and wanted to pursue a career in music - and Lucie has stated this inspired her career. Lucie learned the piano at the age of 5, and had written her first song by age 10.
In 2003, Lucie recorded her album, Breathe In. Most of the songs were co-written with Judie Tzuke, for whom Silvas sang backing vocals for many years.
BBC Radio 2 commissioned a radio show to track Silvas' development in the music industry, supporting her career, and adding her tracks to their playlist. The first single from the album, "What You're Made of," entered the official UK charts at number 7, and a few weeks later the album debuted and peaked at number 11.
Following TV appearances on the Ivor Novello Elton John tribute show, and "All Time Greatest Love Songs" with Ronan Keating, Lucie released her second single from the album, "Breathe In", which debuted at number 6.
Silvas then released "The Game Is Won", "Don't Look Back" and "Forget Me Not." None of them did very well on the charts.
Following the release of the "Breathe In" single in Britain, Lucie performed on the Continent where she was well received. She released a special Europe-only single, "Nothing Else Matters," her cover of the Metallica song.
Lucie's next album The Same Side was recorded in late 2006. It was released in October 2006 in the Netherlands and in March 2007 in the UK and the rest of Europe.
