LYDIAH is an alternative-folk artist from Liverpool who carries her uniquely soulful vocal with vivid, poetic lyrics. Through her atmospheric and captivating performances, her music draws you in to a world full of complex characters and dark stories.
LYDIAH is known across Liverpool’s live music scene for supporting high profile touring artists alongside promoting her own shows – recently hosting a music event in aid of MIND featuring XAMVOLO.
Since winning the Judges Award in the Liverpool Acoustic Songwriting Competition in 2017, LYDIAH has been selected for a number of artist development opportunities. Earlier this year she took part in the Levi’s music project in collaboration with Warner Music and artist mentor Loyle Carner. This involved a six month programme resulting in a live performance on the main stage at Liverpool’s Soundcity Festival.
She then joined the most recent cohort of Merseyrail Soundstation, a programme put together by Liverpool music magazine Bido Lito! LYDIAH also joined the LIMF (Liverpool International Music Festival) Academy Elite for 2019/2020, one of three artists selected as “most ready”.
LYDIAH not only pulls from her own experiences in her songs, but also finds influence (pretty much daily) from life around her. She is a very driven artist and prolific songwriter. She will release her debut single in 2020.
