Lydia Cole has been living in Berlin since the release of her album The Lay of the Land in 2017. In this time she has performed in 9 countries throughout Europe and the UK, where audiences have received her with great warmth.
“In these new environments I’ve become reacquainted with that feeling of complete vulnerability, both on and off stage.” she reflects.
On stage her new bandmate Timothy Armstrong gently adds harmony, rhythm and texture.
February and March will see the two-time Silver Scroll finalist home again, basking briefly in the familiar, sharing new songs and fresh takes on old ones.

“Authenticity is a good thing for Lydia Cole. That’s why the loveable New Zealand singer/songwriter has always had her heart on her tongue. Where other similarly inspired artists hide behind metaphors and their faults, Cole is not afraid to expose her soul and shines with restraint and sincerity on record and stage.”
