Biography

"Love this woman. Love her. Is "Stevie Nicks singing lead on 'Born to Run'" overstating it? Probably, but too bad." --SPIN

“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." ... Read more in Amazon's Lydia Loveless Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Indestructible Machine, Lydia's Bloodshot debut, combines heady doses of punk rock energy and candor with the country classicism she was raised on and just can't shake. From foggy mountain throwdowns where she sounds like a tuff Neko Case, to muscular power pop driven by choppy, tense guitar tonalities recalling Television's Richard Lloyd to the take no s**t spirit of Loretta Lynn and displaying country soul well beyond her years, Loveless true-to-life testimonials hit and hit hard. Be it whiskey, men, god or alienation, Lydia takes them all on; they may kick, but she kicks back harder.

Review

Her sound is very reminiscent of Lynn s soulful country, as well as nods to acts like Patsy Cline, and an attitude that certainly takes more than its fair share from punk rock. --Wayward

A remarkable debut...the strength of blazing voice, a fully formed persona and bluntly crafty songwriting. 8 out of 10 stars --Spin

A phenomenal record...It's brimming with brashness and vulnerability, confidence and insecurity, and can leave you not knowing quite what to think. --The Boston Globe

Can't wait to see her live; come to Tallahassee, Fl. on your next tour and I'll be there if I can.

And god I just love her voice and her slap-in-the-face lyrics.

I am a 68 year old music junkie who listens to everything from grand opera to grand ol opry, Hank to Hendrix and a whole bunch more. I love this cd and I love the talent on display here. If you love "alt country" that is sung by a young lady with a powerful, beautiful voice, then this is for you. She can write beyond her years. Can't wait to see her live; come to Tallahassee, Fl. on your next tour and I'll be there if I can.

Who would have thought that a 21-year-old could write and co-produce such an invigorating set of raw, splintering country rock? Makes you wonder if she's some doe-eyed honky tonk chanteuse of yore reincarnated in Columbus, Ohio.

There are countless garage bands across the U.S. who have vied for a similar melodic, buzzing guitar sound, but Lydia emphasizes country song structure over rock, filling out the ruckus with banjo, violin and pedal steel. The band is deftly adaptable, stretching its punky, crunchy country inflections around mid-tempo shuffle beats ("How Many Women") and a stompin' polka beat ("Jesus Was a Wino").

Lydia's voice and songwriting are every bit the match of the top notch musicianship. Her alto is genuinely melodic and her personal reflections are surprisingly mature, whether she's singing about alcohol, religion, romance, or a local stalker who fancies he's Steve Earle.

"Indestructible Machine" is an exciting album from promising talents. Co-producer/engineer Joe Viers deserves praise for the clarity and balance of the final mix. He has preserved a worthy document of a band that leaves everything on stage when it performs and everything in the studio when it records.

Loveless' second album (first for Bloodshot) rocks it up much more than her debut, The Only Man, but it sticks by the root-deep country spirit that Loveless seems to channel effortlessly. It's a perfect second album, preserving much of what charmed on the first while moving in new directions.

And god I just love her voice and her slap-in-the-face lyrics.

She really kicks it on stage, too. If you get a chance to see her, don't miss it.

Purchased this after seeing Lydia and her band play live and quickly fell in love with it. She blends country, rock, bluegrass, and a little punk into heartfelt songs that stick with the listener. Her vocals are strong yet vulnerable. Eagerly awaiting her new release and return trip to Cincinnati.

Fell in love with Lydia after hearing "Can't Change Me" on a Bloodshot Records sampler and it's the stand-out track on this album. She's got a powerful voice and writes powerful, insightful, gritty, catchy songs. Now's the time to catch this elevator on the ground floor. She's way too good to go unnoticed for long.

This woman has such huge talent - every song is strong - great voice, delivery, and lyrics - I love it! I heard she was coming here, and can't wait to see her live in SLC at the Garage on Beck.

Hard driving music and lyrics, great stuff! Loveless knows how to put you right there with her in a song, for better or worse.
