Always interested in music, Lucie began playing the piano by age five and had written her first song by age ten.

Years later, Silverman dropped out of high school to work as a background singer for ex-Take That singer Gary Barlow, and in 2000 she signed to then-EMI imprint Chrysalis Records.

After failing to make any impact on the British charts, she was dropped from the label and concentraated on her songwriting and securing another record deal.

She was picked up by Mercury where she released her debut full-length, Breathe In.  She spent several years touring before recording her second album, The Same Side.

After The Same Side failed to impact on the charts, Silvas was subsequently dropped again by her label.

She has spent time working on new music in Nashville, Tennessee and New York City, as well as in studios in the UK.  

In 2011, Silvas revealed content from her then-forthcoming album, Letters to Ghosts.  She worked on some new songs with Una Healy of The Saturdays on a song called “Last Call”, written by Silvas, Healy and Chris Holmes that was featured on The Saturdays’ album On Your Radar. 

In early 2013 Silvas wrote songs for NBC’s musical drama, Smash. Her songs, including “Heart Shaped Wreckage”, “Pretender”, “Don’t Let Me Know” and “Calling Out My Name“, appear in Hit List, a staged concert based on the fictional musical created for that show’s second season.

In 2015, Lucie released her self-titled EP .  The EP was produced by Silvas, John Osborne and Ian Fitchuk, on her own label via Caroline records.

Letters to Ghosts was officially released in late 2015.

Silvas co-wrote the song “Smoking Jacket” and provides backing vocals for Miranda Lambert on her 2016 album, The Weight of These Wings.
