Blessed with a blast-it-to-the-back-of-the-room voice, the 20 year old native of Columbus, OH combines country classicism with punk rock candor—sometimes within the same song.
Lydia grew up on a farm in Coshocton OH, a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. So she did, starting off by playing bass in her sister's band at age 14.
She cites Hank Sr, Hank III, Richard Hell, Charles Bukowski, Loretta Lynn, Britney Spears and Lydia's musically inclined family as her big inspirations. Yes, you read that right. Bukowski AND Spears.
Look for her debut Bloodshot release Indestructible Machine in September 2011.
The Union Suits
The Union Suits are a high plains outlaw country band. They play for keeps. The Union Suits are children of God's Country. Midwestern jokers with a penchant for song and drink. They are yours to confide in, yours to consume. They are yours.
Debut album "You Got The Wrong Guy" released in March, 2012 on Jokertown Records!
The Huckleberrys are a bunch of manmeat, pickin', stickin' and singin' songs written and sang by other people like Waylon, George, Bob, Mick, Keith, Jim Ed, Dion, Little Richard, and so many more. Members include some Chooglers, and some Ol' Yellers. No, we don't know "Don't Stop Believing", or "Brown Eyed Girl", and we won't take the time to learn them unless you're willing to pay us for that time. Think of us as smokin' hot musical escorts you would normally never been seen with.
We are named in honor of the best dog anyone could know, Huckleberry. Anyone who had the privilege to meet him surely knows that. You can see by the pictures what a handsome and good natured boy he was. He is sorely missed by many, and a friend to all.
