    Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 24-year-old Lydia Loveless was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors.  She has turned this potential nightmare scenario into a wellspring of creativity.

    When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to the city (Columbus, OH) and immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.

    Lydia’s 2014 album 'Somewhere Else' earned glowing accolades from NPR, Rolling Stone, SPIN, Pitchfork, Stereogum, Grantland, and more, and she was named a New Artist You Need to Know in 2014 by both Rolling Stone and SPIN. Lydia played Stagecoach Festival in 2015 and will tour with Iron & Wine and Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses in summer 2015
