Lydia Briggs’ new release, Carolina Queen, pulls you in like the tide and washes over you

Lydia Briggs, Cleveland-based singer/songwriter releases new single, “Carolina Queen.” The track is available on all worldwide DSPs on September 27. Partnering once again with Cleveland-based videographers, Clockwork 9 (Fallen Captive), the music video premiered on the day of the release on her YouTube channel

Carolina Queen is about the loss of innocence and leaving something you love behind.

“The Carolinas hold a special place in my heart,” says Lydia Briggs. “I grew up with summers on those beaches. Some of my most treasured memories are from there. But it’s also home to one of my darkest moments. I found myself changed forever. I was no longer the ‘Carolina Queen’ I had imagined myself to be as a child and feared to return. I’m happy to say I finally found the courage to walk those beaches again, shoot the video for this release, and show off the beauty of the Carolina coast.”

Born and raised a mile from the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Lydia Briggs has been playing piano non-stop since the age of 5. At 13, she began writing songs, filed for her first business at 14 (her independent label, Gin House Records) and copyrighted all of her material. At 15, Lydia teamed with producer Jim Wirt to record her first six songs and began releasing singles through her distribution partner, AWAL.

The 16-year-old musician is blessed with a pure voice, blues-influenced piano style, and a bohemian sensibility. Reflecting her idol, Regina Spektor, Briggs’s brain-voice connection runs from her fingers to her heart - singing and playing the piano as one.
