Called “a truly gifted performer with a bag full of enchanting songs” by The New Yorker, Lucy Kaplansky is one of the finest singer-songwriters in acoustic music today.
Lucy Kaplansky is an acclaimed singer-songwriter of rare talent, “a truly gifted performer with a bag full of enchanting songs” (The New Yorker). She has released eight critically acclaimed CDs and has twice been awarded best Pop Album of the year by the Association for Independent Music. Folk Alley called Lucy's latest album, "Everyday Street," "remarkable."
Lucy was part of folk supergroup Cry Cry Cry with Dar Williams and Richard Shindell, and their album was an astonishing success in stores and on radio resulting in a national tour of sold-out concerts.
Lucy has also been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered with Melissa Block, Weekend Edition With Scott Simon, and Morning Edition with Bob Edwards as well as BBC Radio 2 and CBS Sunday Morning, and has sung harmony on albums by Suzanne Vega, Bryan Ferry (Roxy Music), Nanci Griffith and Shawn Colvin. In addition, her song “Guilty as Sin” was featured in the NBC television show Ed, and her vocals were featured in the Tom Cruise film The Firm.

"A master class in making the personal universal." (National Public Radio)
“Kaplansky weaves...fragile lives together, making even tenuous connections as palpable as flesh and blood.” (USA Today)
“Her albums to date highlight an astute and inclusive awareness of the human condition that seems to have little to do with commercial dictates.”
(The Irish Times)
