Lidh (l-i-d) is the pseudonym of Eilidh Lawrence, a young Scottish singer- songwriter based in the creative hub of the East Neuk of Fife, which is well known as the home of Fence Records.
Lidh’s live sound combines endearing, fragile vocals, guitar and fuzz- mandolin with stripped-back drums to create a unique, lo-fi sound, which lies somewhere between The Corries and The White Stripes. Her studio recordings build on this, creating a fuller and more dynamic sound.
Lidh created a bit of a buzz when she first emerged aged 17 with her release ‘Wasting Time’, which gained her airplay on BBC Radio Scotland and saw many worthy reviews from DJs and bloggers. Her connection with Fence Records goes back to this time, and she released her second EP in association with King Creosote’s ‘Alter Ego Trading Company’. ‘Rockpool Hospital’ built on her earlier success, gaining airplay on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6 Music and seeing her named as ‘One to Watch’ by DJ Ally McCrae.
Her new release, ‘Murmur’, is yet another step on the road of a blossoming music career, which sees her collaborate with some musicians of old; Jamie Watson of The Persian Rugs, Mark Lawrence of Coast and Gordon Keen & Roy Lawrence (her dad) of Captain America/Eugenius. Lidh has played with and supported some fine musicians along the way; The Vaselines, King Creosote, R.M Hubbert and Rachel Sermanni to name but a few.
