Lucy (Lucine) Yeghiazaryan was born in a small village in Armenia, where she spent the earlier years of her youth prior to immigrating to The United States in 2001. As a child she studied classical violin at the National Conservatory and took an initial interest in singing as a result of her father's love for jazz.
At the age of ten, she became the youngest member of the vocal a cappella group, YY Sisters who perform non-secular Armenian and Middle-Eastern music and today enjoy wide recognition within the American Armenian community.
Since immigrating, Lucy has been an active member of the New York, New Jersey jazz community. Throughout her teens, she was a participant in NJPAC's Jazz for Teens Program through which she better familiarized herself with jazz under the direction of Don Bradon, Mike Ledonne and Valery Panamarov. Despite her Eastern roots Lucy decided upon jazz as her main genre of interest.
The uncommon fusion of a more Eastern oriented style of singing, and traditional jazz creates an undeniably distinct sound that immediately captivates the listener regardless of cultural background. The intricacies and heart of both are equally native to Lucy and are expressed most honestly and soulfully in performance. Her repertoire is extremely versatile and includes unknown and scarcely recorded jazz, blues, sharakan and Latin compositions.
Lucy plays violin in the septet SoundSketch lead by sister Tatev, who mostly perform original Armenian or jazz compositions. Lucy performs regularly at various venues and festivals throughout The States. She was the house singer of the National Armenian Jazz Orchestra for the 2013-2014 season and was a semifinalist in the prestigious International Monk Jazz Competition in 2014.
