Lucy Kaplansky with Anthony da Costa
Lucy Kaplansky has an extraordinary feel for the range of human emotion.
Barely out of high school, Kaplansky left her native Chicago for New York City where she found a fertile community of songwriters and performersSuzanne Vega, John Gorka, Bill Morrissey, Cliff Eberhardt, and othersand quickly became everyones favorite singing partner.
She gave up music for a period of time to study and practice Psychology, and uses her insights into the human condition to create songs with deep emotional impact.
Her latest project is a couple of tracks on the children's CD and storybook "Down at the Sea Hotel," a portion of the proceeds from which will benefit The Breast Cancer Fund.
"New York songwriter Lucy Kaplansky is becoming the troubador laureate of modern city folk." -- Boston Globe
