Meet LYNDIA

LYNDIA breaks down her artistry and what's next to come..

We love to discover new music and are so happy we had a chance to interview this artist. We asked LYNDIA a few short questions about her artistry and what to expect next. Here's what she had to say..


Every artist has a unique story. Can you tell us a little about yours?

"I grew up in the woods of Rhode Island as your typical “tomboy”. If I wasn’t outside then you could find me creating art: I made things out of cardboard, I painted, I drew pictures and even liked to decorate t-shirts. When I was super young I would tell my older sister stories, she would write them down, and I would illustrate. As I got older I started making movies with my neighbors and eventually studied film for a portion of college. Art has played a role in every season of my life. When the pandemic hit I reverted back to drawing and music as a way to process what was happening."..


Please tell us about your art. What do you do / make / create? How? Why? What’s the message or inspiration, what do you hope people take away from it? What should we know about your artwork?

"I do my best to create honest art through forms of music, short films, and live events. I create out of a sense of necessity. I felt like female narratives were under-represented in christian music. I was looking for someone to relate to and learn from but I just wasn’t connecting with what I was finding (since then I’ve found more Christian females sharing great music). In everything I create, I hope people grow closer to God. I hope my art encourages people to be more vulnerable in their prayer life. If I’m honest with you will you be honest with yourself? We’re all broken people in need of a savior who invites us in with open arms."..


How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?

"Give LYNDIA a follow on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, Instagram (@lyndia_official) or any music streaming service. Playing a song for a friend or adding it to your playlist really helps. If you live in New England, come to a live event!"..

When and why did you start playing/making music?

"I’ve helped with worship at church, bible study, and youth groups on and off since I was 13 years old. Ironically, people would ask me if I ever wanted to make my own music and I always replied with a hard no. I struggled with making worship self centered and I wasn’t wanting to add to that by creating my own songs. After a year of being in a pandemic, music became a way to cope with all the change. I’ve matured a lot but I still have to be on guard against pride."..


Tell us a little about your faith journey and how you came to give your life to Jesus?

"I grew up in a christian home so I constantly heard the gospel preached. I didn’t accept Christ until I was 14. I was dealing with some minor depression and lack of self worth. I remember riding my bike and coming to the realization that everything I was living for was fragile. I had these debilitating doubts that I wasn’t good enough or was worried I’d get into a freak accident. I also thought no one cared about me. The turning point was when I heard professional snowboarder Kelly Clark's testimony. I watched as she achieved accolades in the world of snowboarding but still found herself struggling with depression until she met Christ. I resonated with her story and God just showed me how I felt so heavy because I put my hope in my aspirations instead of him. At 15, I got baptized and since then I’ve just been growing and navigating how to follow God."..


What jobs have you done other than being an artist?

"I am currently a personal trainer and BMX racing coach. For too long I really wanted to be a professional BMX racer but location, finance, and skill did not allow it. When I realized I wasn’t going pro I settled with the fact that being a coach might help someone else reach their dream. So I’m a full-time coach and make music when I can."..


How do you balance your music with other obligations - significant other, children, job etc.? Are you full time music?

"Art is something I try to squeeze in around work, church, and racing BMX. Sometimes that means staying up till 2 a.m. on the weekends to record. Other times it means animating on my iPad between shifts at the gym."..


What advice would you give up and coming independent artists?

"Learn everything you can even if you don't want to. I had opportunities to learn more about sound engineering in college and from friends but I just assumed I’d never need the skills. When I realized I was going to have to mix and master all by myself, I was kicking myself for not paying more attention."..


What can we expect next from you?

"I’m hyped about the future! I just came out with my first EP “When This Is Over”. My hope is to arrange a live set of those songs and do some local live performances with my band members Hannah and Enoch. I also have another EP in the works that I wrote about my time in St. Louis. I’m excited to start producing and recording it. I think it will have a very chill and spacey sound."
