SAY THE NAME, HEAR THE MUSIC… LYDIA CAESAR!!
She walks into a room and commands your attention. She opens her mouth and makes people smile. She takes the stage and you will never forget her. Lydia Caesar is an experience. An artist that can truly sings sans the vocal tricks and studio manipulation. A songwriter who can pen heart felt songs coupled with the stage presence of an icon.
Lydia’s not your typical Urban/Pop bombshell, her music is soulful and edgy, filled with colorful pop/rock musical tracks, energetic guitar riffs, intense drums and melodious hooks. Her records are timeless, ageless and colorless.
“Music is a way of life, it’s in me, I write what I live. I want people to hear my music and say, WOW I’ve gone through that or I feel like that, people relating to the music is the key”, says Lydia.
Born and raised in Hollis, Queens – one of four children to a Jamaican mother and father with St. Lucian roots, Lydia’s strong musical church going family lead to her singing. At the tender age of four Lydia was singing in front of hundreds of people at the church founded by her grandfather and where her father serves as the bishop at Bethel Gospel Tabernacle. “God blessed me with a gift and now it’s my turn to bless the world, artists like Michael Jackson, Tina Turner, Andre Crouch and Chaka Khan fuels my desire to sing and perform.”
