The Digger 3:550:00/3:55
New release coming soon for 2021
Singer/songwriter, Lydia Brownfield, spent many years honing her craft in Atlanta, opening for artists such as Loudon Wainwright III, Peter Case, Shawn Mullins and Indigo Girls, as well as playing shows with her band in the area’s top clubs.
Before settling in Columbus, Lydia became a regular performer in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village, and began a recording career that has continued to date.
Her songs are pulled from experiences of growing up in Columbus, Ohio, her studies at the local fine arts college, a decade of living and performing in Atlanta, touring the south, and then moving to New York City - not least having gone through two difficult divorces and now being a mom. All of which brings a dramatic - often comedic - and entertaining live show.
Alongside Lydia, you'll find her longtime partner, Jeff Dalrymple. His finger-picking guitar playing style is the ultimate compliment to Brownfield's pure and captivating voice. Together as an acoustic duo, they showcase super tight vocal harmonies while the guitars weave an intricate web of songs that are thoughtfully crafted and beautifully executed.
Look for live performances in and around Ohio, Atlanta and New York with Dalrymple and with her full band.

Singer/songwriter Lydia Brownfield spent many years honing her craft in Atlanta. She opened for artists including Loudon Wainwright III, Peter Case, Shawn Mullins, and Indigo Girls and played shows with her band in the area’s top clubs.
Before settling in Columbus, Brownfield became a regular performer in the coffee houses of Greenwich Village and began a recording career that has continued to date.
Her songs reflect a lifetime of rich and also very human experiences. They include growing up in Columbus, Ohio, and studying at the local fine arts college. A decade of living and performing in Atlanta and touring the south. A move to New York City and going through two difficult divorces. And most importantly, becoming a mom. All of this brings a dramatic, energetic, and entertaining live show.
Brownfield’s music influences range widely from folk and alternative country to power pop and punk, and her songs cross many of those same genres but find a comfortable spot among edgy folk/pop artists. Her pure and powerful voice has been compared to Alison Krauss, Sinéad O'Connor, and Sheryl Crow. Brownfield’s range of experiences extends to her live show. She may perform either solo, or accompanied by her partner and guitarist, Jeff Dalrymple, or with her entire band - depending on the venue. The result is a gifted lyricist showcasing a vast catalog of thoughtfully crafted and beautifully executed songs.

“Imagine a grown-up Exene Cervenka meeting an edgier and less ambiguous Stevie Nicks, with some McCartney melodicism and Pete Townshend angst thrown in, and you’ve got Lydia Brownfield.”
— Rick Moore, Music News-Nashville
“...Beneath a placid façade, Brownfield’s music rages...”
