Matt Bizer ['Azalea' Director] calls the collaboration “serendipitous,” saying, “We both lived in Nashville at one point; we hadn’t previously met as I recently relocated to Los Angeles. We were introduced by our mutual friend only a month prior to filming.”


"The blend of cuttingly honest lyrics, a stunning string section and viola, which Luce herself has played since she was a young child, creates an atmosphere of dizzying contemplation." - Lorie Liebig

"...the songs that she writes and records now are carefully composed without the sort of pomp that we some may have come to expect from classically-trained performers from musical families. Luce forgoes the usual pageantry for something organic and unique that comes from the heart." -  Brittney McKenna

Lydia Luce was born into a musical family. Her mother, a gifted organ and piano player, conducted her own symphony orchestra. For Luce, her instrument of choice was viola; later adding guitar to her set of talents. “My mom introduced my brother and me into to a world of classical music and I’m grateful for it,” Luce says. “It guided my desire to create music of my own.” Making her home now in Nashville, Tenn., the folk singer-songwriter finds inspiration in combining her accomplished formal education and session work as a studio musician with the personal and emotional content of family, love, and life experience.

Her first EP, The Tides, landed in 2015. In 2017, Luce graced the stages of Merlefest and Americana Fest, as well touring as an opening artist for singer-songwriter Peter Bradley Adams. She recently released her latest single, “Helen,” from her forthcoming LP, collaborating in Nashville with Jordan Lehning and Skylar Wilson. “This record feels like the fruit of a few discoveries I made last year. I’d put out my first EP and only just started to focus on writing. Last year I started making some sense out of the new tunes,” says Luce. “Playing strings has been a huge part of my life. On this album, I got to record viola and guitar on my tunes with people that I truly admire. I’m very proud of what we’ve created.”
