Lydia Liza’s debut record, “Of Unsound Mind” dives deep into heartache, bad relationships, recovery, and questions what the hell “it all” means.
A couple years after going viral for re-writing “Baby It’s Cold Outside” in 2017, Lydia Liza got sober. And then she got writing. Not a lot of artists can wear the “teenage musical prodigy” hat and go on to find success as an adult, and not a lot of artists can write a smash novelty holiday song and go on to transcend the “viral sensation” label -- but with her first solo effort, Lydia Liza echoes Nick Drake, Jeff Buckley and Laura Marling with ease. Add a sprinkle of nostalgic pop-punk, and Liza creates a tasteful, familiar and expansive soundscape that keeps the listener hooked.
Lydia Liza has been featured on Vanity Fair, New York Times, People Magazine, 89.3 The Current, CNN, Bustle, Pitchfork, Billboard, CBC, NPR, BBC, Daily Mail, the NY Post; she has topped Spotify charts, she has been covered by Broadway stars, amateur YouTubers and everything in-between, and boasts over 6 million plays on Spotify. She has shared the stage with the likes of The Goo-Goo Dolls, Jake Bugg and Kimya Dawson. This debut record was a project on Kickstarter that raised $13,000. And though her viral re-write of a Christmas song caught the attention of an international audience, her real, authentic songwriting is bound to do the same thing.
