Editorial Reviews

Review

Lydia's warm voice has an immediate recognizable quality. Both tender and at the same time such deep inner strength. When she places her hands on the keyboard, the sounds that come from her take on a life of their own, pure heart and emotion simply pours out. --John Ford Coley, of Grammy-nominated duo ENGLAND DAN AND JOHN FORD COLEY

The CD starts with the haunting "My House Isn't Old", a smoky ballad that clearly highlights Lydia's vocals. From there, it only gets better. Her musical abilities are evident on every song, and the production is top notch.
Usually, I like to find those cuts on an album that stand out above the others. The thing is, there aren't any - they are all stand out compositions, each deserving air play in their own right. --Dan Harr (MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE)

"Hallway" isn't a bluegrass record, a country record or anything quite the kind of music one normally associates with Nashville. It's more akin to the California soft rock reminiscent of the 70s heyday, and some of its better female practitioners like Karla Bonoff, Carole King, Linda Ronstadt and Nicolette Larson. The singer-songwriter in Lydia Salnikova is inward looking, soulful and pensive. Melancholy, you might even say.
Melancholy, yes, but the emotional depth of the tunes save them from being downers. Salnikovs's vocals, hefty but sweet, conveys her tales of heartache and confessionals with honesty. There s a consistent flow in the soft-to-middle paced vibe and even the insertion of a old Russian folk song "Ah Ty Step Shirokaya" sung in her native tongue doesn't really disturb it. No fillers on this disc, but the standouts are "Just One", "Trapped", "Written In My Heart", "What If It's Love", and a groovy R&B cooker called "Once I Thought I Knew". --S. Victor Aaron (SomethingElseReviews.com)

Product Description

Born and raised in Russia, Lydia originally made her stand in the U.S. music scene as a lead vocalist and keyboard player for the Grammy-nominated band Bering Strait, which released 2 albums on Universal South Records and was featured in a "60 Minutes" episode, as well as a full-length documentary, "The Ballad Of Bering Strait". The band toured throughout the U.S., sharing the stage with such artists as Trisha Yearwood, Diamond Rio, Steve Azar, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Collin Raye, Wynonna, Phil Vassar, B-52s, Ricky Skaggs, Kenny Rogers, Kathy Mattea and Bela Fleck.
Being both a skilled singer and a classically trained pianist, Lydia also generously lent her musical talents to other acts, in the studio and on the road; the most notable contributions were her appearances on "We Are The Same" by Kenny Rogers and on "Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross" by Sir Christopher Lee.
While having developed an appreciation and love for both classical and country music, Lydia eventually found that when it came down to just her and her piano and her writing, she was tapping into quite a different musical place, its flavor being soulful, emotional and highly introspective. She was compelled to leave Bering Strait in 2006 to start searching for her own voice, not that of a singer or a player in a band but that of a solo artist. Between experimenting in the studio and playing live in a trio setting, she began finding it.
Lydia's first solo offering, album titled "Hallway", was recorded in her home studio. She has written or co-written every song on the album, and one of those songs scored her a nomination for a 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Award.

5.0 out of 5 stars Demands, but amply rewards, the listener's full attention February 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Short version: good stuff, but certainly not pop, and somewhat demanding of the listener. You should certainly buy it if you like music for its own sake and habitually give your music your full attention, as Salnikóva's music both demands and rewards the listener's full engagement. (Think of her as a "quality time" musician, who wants you to pay attention to what she's saying, musically and lyrically, rather than multitasking...you know, all you husbands out there, how you get in trouble very rapidly if your wife is trying to talk to you and you're sort of half-listening while trying to watch the game? Well, in her music Salnikova is trying to talk to you, and she expects you to be paying attention, if you see what I mean.)

The young lady has a simply golden singing voice, pure and clear and expressive, and she is a more than accomplished pianist, with sound musical instincts and an uncompromisingly personal voice both lyrically and musically. I don't know what her music would sound like if she had a big budget and could spend a couple of months in a studio with a houseful of musicians and a top-notch professional producer at her disposal -- I'm inclined to believe that Salnikova backed by a full orchestra, on the right song, would blow the doors off the concert hall. But Hallway is a literally home-made album, written and performed and mixed and produced entirely by Salnikova herself, which gives her a somewhat constrained canvas but affords her absolute control of the palette.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding music, vocals and lyrics May 13, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Move over, Diana Krall, Carole King, Vonda Shephard and Nora Jones. Lydia is the new sheriff in town.

Every song on Lydia's debut CD is stellar in composition, performance and delivery. She has created an incredible tapestry of original music; there is not one cover in the entire songlist. There doesn't need to be. You will find yourself playing her songs over and over. I purchased additional copies of Hallway from Amazon to share with my musician friends. I plan to buy additional copies to share with more favorite people in my circle of associates.

Lydia - - - I simply cannot wait until your next CD. You are amazing from the first to the last song. God bless you for sharing your abundant talent with us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a velvet smoothie! December 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
The new CD by Lydia Salnikova is like a cold drink on a burning hot day. Its the kind of CD that's great to have in the car on the way home from work,when you are trapped in traffic. If Lydia's smooth songs don't touch your very soul,well then find a pine box and lay down because you are dead my friend!

Some highlights are:
Track 8 " Written in my heart" one of the most beautiful love songs you will hear this year.

Track 9 "Forgiven" I wish some of my breakups went as well as the one in this song. Hope I can be this mature in a break up when I grow up!

Last but by not least, Track 12 " When you open your eyes today" My personal favorite track on the CD and one of the best songs Lydia has written. It's an adult lullaby. Its the kind of song that you need to play for family or friends going through a tough time or just to tell someone you love them.

In closing, run, do not walk, do not pass go and buy this CD. The wait was worth it and you will be glad you did. Better yet buy an extra for a gift for that special person in your world,they will thank you for it!
