Lydia Loveless

“Loud Introvert” Lydia Loveless Embraces Punk & Country On Somewhere Else

Our guest today Lydia Loveless recently released her third album Somewhere Else and before that, just because she felt like it, an EP called Boy Crazy. The now 23 year old released her first album when she was 19 (it was filled with songs she wrote when she was only 15). That is a lot of music in a short time. We'll talk with this self-described “loud introvert” about her music, a combination of country and punk, and growing up on a farm in rural Ohio. Plus we’ll hear some performances from Loveless and her band – check out the extra web only song "Somewhere Else" below.
