"All of 20, she's got the songwriting soul of someone twice her age and a voice to die for. Her appearance at the recent SXSW made us full-on believers." —Boudin Barndance
Blessed with a blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 21-year-old native of Columbus, OH combines country classicism with punk rock candor—sometimes within the same song.
Lydia grew up on a farm in Coshocton OH, a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. So she did, starting off by playing bass in her sister's band at age 14.
She cites Hank Sr, Hank III, Richard Hell, Charles Bukowski, Loretta Lynn, Britney Spears and Lydia's musically inclined family as her big inspirations. Yes, you read that right. Bukowski AND Spears.
Lydia Loveless will be playing this Thursday at the Larimer Lounge. Head down and show some support!
