Singer/Songwriter Lydia Briggs releases a rock anthem for all women – Rock Bottom


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

With “Rock Bottom,” Lydia refuses to take refuge in silence. You may hear things you don’t want to hear, but let the suspicions seep in. Just as the iconic Ophelia was left with no sense of self, Lydia echoes this sentiment - never truly seen and being completely shut down. And the person who may have loved her once suddenly turns against her.



"Creating this video was extremely cathartic," says Lydia Briggs. "My songs stem from real life experiences. So writing Rock Bottom is the first step to overcome the powerlessness I sometimes feel as a young woman. The video allowed me to express my fear, anger, and sadness in a safe place. And I was able to do this in a beautiful way with a really fun crew around me."



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.
