“Each release pushes her sound into alternating genre-based pockets, whilst retaining her refined artistic voice; a testament to her skill as a songwriter” - Earmilk
“Great voice, incredible production, and really thoughtful composition” - BBC Introducing
Lydia Ford is an indie pop artist originally from the West of Ireland. At the age of 9, she was given a guitar for Christmas and immediately began writing songs in her bedroom.
She continued writing and performing between stints in Dublin, New York and Berlin. By 2021’s track ‘Feel It For You’, Lydia clearly had something worth nurturing. Tastemakers agreed, leading to airplay in Ireland and the UK, extensive editorial playlists across Spotify, press coverage from Billboard, Earmilk and Uproxx, and syncs in ‘Made In Chelsea’. Her reputation blossomed in the live arena too, with highlights to date including sets at Ireland Music Week 2022, Other Voices and We’ve Only Just Begun Festival. Following ‘Feel It For You’, Faction Records (James Vincent McMorrow, Sorcha Richardson) got in touch, which would eventually lead to a deal with their imprint, Bloom Records, who are headed by BBC NI producer Aine Cronin-McCartney. And now her debut album ‘Faking It’ is waiting on the horizon.
A record that can connect with fans of Maisie Peters, Fickle Friends and Phoebe Bridgers, ‘Faking It’ surely represents the starting point of Lydia Ford’s next journey.
