Mainstage Theatre, 216 Union Street, Seattle
Seattle's Lydia Ramsey has been praised for the vintage quality of her dynamic voice and the pure emotions in her songwriting, drawing comparisons to Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. Her original music has been celebrated worldwide by NPR Music, The Americana Music Association and featured on HBO’s hit series, ‘Somebody Somewhere.’
Ramsey’s sensational new album, Like a Dream, is exquisite Folk/Americana, reflecting on a time when the world faced a new normal of sheltering in place, masking, lockdowns and speaks to the loneliness of isolation when life seemed to stand still. The cathartic range of emotion in the album provides a comforting sense of union and rekindled joy, reminding the listener they are not alone. In bringing this new body of work to life, Ramsey collaborated with a number of longtime musician-friends, family members, engineer Johnny Bregar and New York based engineer/producer, D. James Goodwin (The National, Kevin Morby, Blitzen Trapper), to create a dreamlike soundscape of intimate storytelling and transcendental musical ingenuity that touches the forgotten depths of the heart.
October 1st celebrates the release of Like a Dream with her full band one night only at The Triple Door in Seattle, WA.
