Clarksville TN – Local singer/songwriter Lydia Walker has become a household name in recent years. She has performed at numerous festivals, events, coffee shops, churches, and colleges in our region of Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky.
Her music can be described as Contemporary Folk, accompanied by her acoustic guitar and occasionally a ukulele. She has taken the stage hundreds of times, sharing her songs with as many people as she can.Readers may have heard The Lydia Walker Radio Show on WVRY 105.1 FM, where she interviews local people every Tuesday and Friday from 11:00am-12:00noon.
Lydia is releasing a new music video to her song, “I Lift My Eyes” on YouTube. The song is the first track recorded on her new album of worship songs. The video was filmed against the backdrop of the natural and historic landmark of Dunbar Cave State Park.
The song features a Native American flute, and a Jewish shofar. In the video, Lydia is joined by a small group of worship singers and dancers. The song is a call for people of different backgrounds and perspectives to worship the God of creation together.
During the month of February, Lydia is launching a crowdfunding campaign to raise money for the new album. Her goal is to raise $10,000 to cover the costs of recording and production of the project. The songs will include original worship music as well as some updated hymns.
There will be a variety of instruments and styles represented, and will feature multiple worship leaders from our community. Rewards for those who pledge include things like signed CDs, live performances, and spending a day in the studio with Lydia! If the campaign surpasses the initial goal, there will stretch goals like creating a new series of music videos.
Lydia believes that music is powerful, because it communicates thoughts and emotions in a unique way. A message of hope has always been a theme in her music, and continues to inspire her listeners. She says, “Worship music focuses us on who God is, and breaks down cultural barriers. I’m excited to have this amazing opportunity to create something different.
Let’s make music together!” Supporters and friends can pledge to the campaign on www.kickstartlydia.com
