Lydia Brownfield’s Albatross City with Kelly Vaughn
- This event has passed.
Singer/songwriter Lydia Brownfield’s latest project, Albatross City, is at its core a trio of electric guitar, bass and drums, with the occasional guest. With driving beats and room to breathe, this project feels different from her previous endeavors. Albatross City has a stripped down simplicity to it that feels spacious and airy. Still with catchy hooks and memorable choruses –that Lydia is known for– the tone is a little more loose and upbeat than the Lydia Brownfield solo project. A little bluesy. Almost bluegrass. Lydia calls their sound swampy. Her electric guitar sings with confidence and her powerful voice reminds us she’s been doing this a while. Jeff Dalrymple, Lydia’s trusted wingman, powers the bass with a heavier hand than what we’re used to hearing from him on the acoustic guitar. And the addition of Ty Landrum on drums is significant. His passion and skill takes this already mighty duo up a giant leap with not only a solid foundation, but also interesting rhythmic choices.

With a unique blend of folk and indie rock, Kelly Vaughn’s songs tell a story. Soulful and transparent and written from the heart, her songs speak to the struggle, hopes, and joy that we all experience.
