Info zu Lonely House
Jazz vocalist Lucy Yeghiazaryan‘s third album Lonely House will be released on February 24 via LaReserve Records. The theme of loneliness in the album emerged when Yeghiazaryan spent time with his legendary saxophonist husband, Grant Stewart, singing and playing at the piano in their home, perhaps in the loneliest period of New York’s history. They produce a repertoire of classical and calm compositions that appeal to the complex emotions of the present moment.
In the album, there are adaptations of songs with the theme of loneliness, consisting of 11 songs in total, such as Only The Lonely, Lonely Town, Be Myself, as well as the Kurt Weill composition Lonely House.
The timeless compositions, singed by Yeghiazaryan’s with her peaceful unique articulation, were recorded at Rudy van Gelder in February 2022 with the calm accompaniment of pianist Michael Kanan.
A recording that will be enjoyed by music lovers who enjoy quiet vocal and piano duets.

Lucy Yeghiazaryan grew up in post-Soviet Armenia and began listening to her father's once-contraband collection of jazz records at a young age. Electricity was intermittent so these listening sessions were rare but the collection of standards so captivated young Lucy that years before she ever learned to speak English, she began singing the tunes meticulously mimicking the sounds and styles of the likes of Ella and Sarah Vaughan.
Economic hardships eventually forced the family to immigrate to America in 2002. Yeghiazaryan brought her passion for jazz to the States, where she applied for and received a full scholarship to NJPAC's Jazz for Teens Program and happily became part of the local jazz community. After graduating college, Lucy moved to New York City in 2015 to pursue a career as a singer, and in a few short years she has won the respect and accolades of the elders at the epicenter of the jazz world.
