"Lucy’s whole oeuvre, by saying - Her voice … is a pleasant mix of wide-eyed charm and in-the-know playfulness, Like a piece of clove gum, she's got a good kick, and the flavor lingers pretty well afterwards."
– JAZZ WEEKLY

"Lucy Woodward floats above the guitar and percussion, the soft timbres of her voice rising and falling as she anticipates the chord progression and its accompanying accents, the end effect of which is wholly hypnotic.”
- ALL THAT JAZZ

"Hunter and Woodward had enough chemistry between them to ignite a couple dozen Bunsen Burners.”
- ALL THAT JAZZ

"One minute she’s radiating joie de vivre, the next she’s expressing deep bother – and hinting that that would possibly be fun too.”
- DAILY MAIL UK

“What a voice…”
– RUSSELL CROWE (Twitter)

“Til They Bang On The Door, it’s brilliant. Well done, miss you in the band. Sir Rod xxx”
– SIR ROD STEWART (Twitter)

"Lucy’s enthusiastic, sassy and gleeful delivery on top of the greasy grooves laid down by Hunter bred sonic ear worms capable of digging into the deepest part of the brain inciting in the listener bodily movements and reactions beyond mere toe tapping and head bopping. Indeed, sweat glands burst into action, heart rates rose and involuntary shouts escaped normally staid and proper throats. Woodward's powerful, expressive voice went toe to toe with Hunter's pyrotechnical guitar/bass playing. Her barely contained slinky undulations while delivering the goods punctuated the soulful sonics.”

”Lucy is a deep, soulful vocalist who is as versatile and virtuosic as she is passionate.”
MICHAEL LEAGUE (SNARKY PUPPY BANDLEADER)

"Ravishing Show” An unusually dynamic and skilled singer, who at the same time proved to be a masterful performer. Lucy Woodward is new to a Danish context, but what a singer! Power and radiance, and her vocal abilities showed great diversity and artistic range.
– LARS BORUP, AARHUS JAZZ FEST

"Woodward ... was absolutely show-stopping behind the mic. Her vocal delivery was effortless.”
– WINNIPEG’S UPTOWN

“Tantalizing.”
– ALL MUSIC

“A sonic turnstile that flips through dreamy pop, jazz and bluesy bebop, [Lucy] lovingly revisits '60s Britpop, with a cool finger-snapping rhythm, stings of strings and percussive snaps, and a performance that fosters an image of the vocalist clinging to the mic stand with one hand, glass of champagne in the other and a faraway look in her eyes, toying sensuously with her audience. The album boasts staggering versatility. Lucy's a ball, equally appreciable for fans of melodic singalong baubles and highbrow aficionados of finely honed musical composition.”
– BILLBOARD

“A steamy, string-kissed slice of retro British pop by a versatile singer/songwriter.”
– USA TODAY

“Sublime.”
– FOX NEWS

”Lucy Woodward almost stole the show. And she might well have done so, wholly and completely, if her two bandmates had not demonstrated the same touch for nuance she did throughout the two sets.”
– GLIDE MAGAZINE

“An effortlessly engaging, deeply expressive vocalist and an insightful, charismatic and disarmingly witty songwriter.”
– THE VENTURA COUNTY STAR

“Lucy brings a sultry intensity and scorching sensuality to her bluesy jazz/pop performances – “a jaw-dropping listening experience.”
– SONGWRITER’S MONTHLY

“Jump, jive and wail along with this swinging single-gal lament. You’ll feel the song’s retro tom-tom beat, but it’s Woodward’s brassy, ticklish vocals—and clever lyrics that rhyme `our registry’ with `couples therapy’—that’ll have you hitting Repeat.”
– MARIE CLAIRE

“…produced with an ear to re-creating the big ensemble pop of the '50s and '60s, fans of that old-school Brill Building sound should find Hooked! to be an appealing catch.”
– ALL MUSIC

"Woodward starts the show off with a “Hit it boys” that makes the venue feel like a New York underground speakeasy from the 1930s. As ceiling fans help reposition the beads of sweat from forehead to neck, Woodward’s sultry lyrics spill out into the crowd and cause simultaneous group vibing. She has the kind of voice that sounds good just breathing into a microphone. Her set builds up to “Hot and Bothered,” which she tells us actually came from a Yiddish lullaby her grandma used to sing to her. If only we all could be sung to sleep by such music."
