Lydia Baylis

Lydia Baylis is a 23-year-old singer songwriter based in London. After finishing her history degree at Oxford and raising over £1000 for the Welsh Guards Afghanistan Appeal, this Welsh beauty started work on her debut album ‘ A Darker Trace’ with producers, Richard Cardwell (credits include Annie Lennox, James Morrison) and Owen Parker, (credits include Pet Shop Boys, The Gossip). A mediation on the darker side of human nature, this album was inspired by the literature of Virginia Woolf and the Bronte Sisters, as well as music by artists such as Beth Orton & Florence and The Machine. The album also has song writing collaborations with Paul Statham (Dido, Kylie Minogue) and Ian Pickering (Sneaker Pimps) and is an exploration of life’s mellow depths, as well as its overarching joy.
