Biography

Lucie Silvas (born September 4, 1977 in Surrey) is a British singer-songwriter. Her singing, whilst playing the piano, has led to comparisons to other artists of the genre, such as Delta Goodrem.

Lucie Silvas (b.Lucie Joanne Silverman) is half Jewish,half Catholic, although unreligious. Her mother is Scottish and her father is a New Zealander. Lucie grew up in New Zealand and left school at sixteen, where she became a backing vocalist for ex-Take That vocalist Gary Barlow and singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke. In 2000, Lucie signed to Chrysalis Records and recorded an album, entitled Forget Me Not - with tracks including the single "It's Too Late," "Diggin' a Hole" and "Forget Me Not." "It's Too Late" was commercially released in the UK, but failed to make an impact on the chart, and Silvas was subsequently dropped from her record label, prior to the release of her second single and debut album.

Silvas lives in Leicester with her fiancé, Leicester Tigers and Ireland rugby player Geordan Murphy. Her older sister Mia Silvas is also a singer-songwriter of her own right.

In 2003, Lucie was signed to Mercury Records, and recorded her second album, Breathe In, which was to become her official debut. Much of Breathe In was 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 (although it has returned to this position on multiple occasions). 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 further singles; "The Game Is Won," "Don't Look Back" and re-released "Forget Me Not," which entered the charts at numbers 38, 34 and 76, respectively.

Following the release of the "Breathe In" single in Britain, Silvas took her music to Europe, including Germany and the Netherlands, where she achieved critical acclaim and released a special Europe-only single, "Nothing Else Matters," her cover of the Metallica song. Breathe In was also re-released in the Netherlands as a special 2-disc edition, featuring a full live concert recorded there. She also re-recorded "What You're Made Of" for the Spanish and French markets, working with Antonio Orozco and Grégory Lemarchal respectively. A special re-recorded version of the song, featuring the Metropole Orchestra was released as the fourth and final single from the album in the Netherlands. In 2003, she did a duet with Spanish singer Natalia called This Time, and in 2004 also wrote the first single off Natalia's third album, called Sombras (Shades).

The album charted at #62 on the UK Albums Chart in its first week, being the worst album position Lucie has had. It sold a dissapointing 8,000 copies in its first week. At the second week, the album charted outside the Top 100, selling only 2,000 more copies. A DVD of The Same Side has been released in the Netherlands.
