“If you believe in Rock ‘N’ Roll, you pray for people like Lydia Loveless.”--PopMatters.com
"Her defiant tone is matched by songs that put country and punk on equal ground, unvarnished and direct." --Chicago Tribune
Blessed with a commanding, blast-it-to-the-back-of-theroom voice, the 21-year-old Lydia Loveless was raised on a family farm in Coshocton, Ohio—a small weird town with nothing to do but make music. With a dad who owned a country music bar, Loveless often woke up with a house full of touring musicians scattered on couches and floors.
When she got older, in the time-honored traditions of teenage rebellion, she turned her back on these roots, moved to the city (Columbus, OH) and immersed herself in the punk scene, soaking up the musical and attitudinal influences of everyone from Charles Bukowski to Richard Hell to Hank III.
"An old soul in a 21 year-old’s body, Lydia Loveless sings about the kind of heartache usually reserved for someone working on her third marriage." - The Charleston Gazette
