Whether expressing the vicissitudes of a romance run off course or finding one's soul deep inside his or her thoughts, Lydia crafts its sound with cadence approach that creates the equal allegiance to thunder and quiet found in Antleman's words, and further solidifies its place as the voice of today's indie rock generation. Lydia started out in 2003 as a five piece band: Leighton Antelman (Lead Vo...cals and Guitar), Steve McGraw (Guitar), Maria Sais De Sicilia (Backup vocals and Keyboard), Dustin Forsgren (Bass), and Loren Brinton (Drums).
Lydia has risen to fame quickly as the band won a nationwide competition to be part of Atticus Draggin' the Lake Volume 3 compilation hosted by the Atticus Clothing with the song "Smile, You've Won," in 2005. It continued its success with its demo, "Your Taste is My Attention," making it to the Volume 4 in 2006.
The band (then Leighton, Steve, Ethan, Evan and Mindy White) released their sophomore album "Illuminate" to extremely positive reviews and gained a great following.
The band released their (at the time) final album, Assailants on July 20, 2010. They followed it up with the Goodbye & Farewell Tour in both the United States and Australia.
After a year long hiatus, Leighton and Craig have decided to write, record, and release a brand new album under the Lydia name in the summer of 2011.
