As a classically-trained pianist and accomplished musician, Lydia René’s sound is best described as “indie, vibrant soul”. With influences ranging from Jill Scott and Phyllis Hyman to James Taylor and Carole King, Lydia’s blended sound will take audiences to a higher musical plateau.
Lydia has shared the stage with many award-winning artists such as Eric Roberson, Jean Baylor, Jaguar Wright, and Wayna. She has also had the opportunity to work with acclaimed producers and musicians including Tejumold & Johari Newton (Lauryn Hill, Aretha Franklin, Jazmine Sullivan), Rick Carlos (Jennifer Lopez, Nelly), Harry Wilson (John Legend, Kindred The Family Soul), Damon “Mr. Dizzy Fingers” Bennett (Jay-Z, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake), and Stan Davis (Kindred The Family Soul, Kelly Rowland, Teena Marie).More recently Lydia's voice was featured singing "I Put A Spell On You" for the movie trailers of the Box Office Hit 'The Perfect Guy'. She also sang "Wade In The Water" along with an ensemble for a promo in the hit show "EMPIRE".
While Lydia René continues to build upon her ever-growing fan base, she hopes to one day reach the level of music’s greatest singer/songwriters and musicians. Her debut album "Vintage Heart" has already received great acclaim from music publications including SoulTrain, Philadelphia Weekly and SoulBounce. The album is now available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, and Bandcamp.
