Biography

September 11

Admired for her beauty by the legendary Lauren Bacall and garnering vocal comparisons to Dido, Carly Simon and Marianne Faithful, the glittering British singer/songwriting talent of Lydia Baylis is on course for galactic success as she launches her debut physical release, ‘Starman’, on 1 August, but it will be available for download from 6 June via www.lydiabaylis.com.  Written in homage to one of her greatest musical influences, David Bowie. ‘Starman’ will be a fundraising campaign for the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal – a sincere hand of support from an artist personally affected by the tragedy of war.

A track of epic proportions, ‘Starman’ delivers a jaw-dropping cocktail of gripping instrumentals which work as a bespoke sound-bed to Lydia’s incredible voice. The track exports the listener on an exhilarating journey, which beautifully explodes into cascading drama and excitement as Lydia’s powerful Dido-esque vocals envelope the melody to create a sheer musical masterpiece.  Lydia writes about what she sees around her, as she explains, “With Starman, I wanted to write about feeling lonely and wanting to be saved.  It has an element of The Little Prince, a touch of the fairytale of a knight in shining armour in the form of a Starman from outside our ‘world’ to take you away.”
