Lydia Ford is an indie pop artist originally from the West of Ireland. Writing songs from the age of 9, as a teenager she joined various pop-punk bands and began working for Irish TV channel TV3. After moving to Brooklyn in New York, Lydia rediscovered her love for music and 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, and now her debut album ‘Faking It’ is waiting on the horizon.
A record that will connect with fans of Maisie Peters, Fickle Friends and Phoebe Bridgers, ‘Faking It’ surely represents the exciting starting point of Lydia Ford’s next journey.
