Profile Information

studio vocalist / piano player / songwriter / artist
About Me:
Born and raised in Russia, Lydia originally made her stand in the U.S. music scene as a lead vocalist and keyboard player for the Grammy-nominated band Bering Strait, which released 2 albums on Universal South Records and was featured in a “60 Minutes” episode, as well as a full-length documentary, “The Ballad Of Bering Strait”. The band toured throughout the U.S., sharing the stage with such artists as Trisha Yearwood, Diamond Rio, Steve Azar, Carolyn Dawn Johnson, Collin Raye, Wynonna, Phil Vassar, B-52s, Ricky Skaggs, Kenny Rogers, Kathy Mattea and Bela Fleck.

Being both a skilled singer and a classically trained pianist, Lydia also generously lent her musical talents to other acts, in the studio and on the road; the most notable contributions were her appearances on “We Are The Same” by Kenny Rogers and on “Charlemagne: By the Sword and the Cross” by Sir Christopher Lee.

While having developed an appreciation and love for both classical and country music, Lydia eventually found that when it came down to just her and her piano and her writing, she was tapping into quite a different musical place, its flavor being soulful, emotional and highly introspective. She was compelled to leave Bering Strait in 2006 to start searching for her own voice, not that of a singer or a player in a band but that of a solo artist. Between experimenting in the studio and playing live in a trio setting, she began finding it.

Lydia’s first solo offering, album titled “Hallway”, was recorded in her home studio. She has written or co-written every song on the album, and one of those songs scored her a nomination for a 2011 Hollywood Music in Media Award.

Finally, Lydia has recently had the honor of performing for NASA at Space Center Houston, where she was overjoyed to discover that some of her music had already been played in space!

Lydia is available for studio work as a singer and a piano player. Check out her vocal compilation on "My Music" player, or visit for more samples. She also does voice over work (

Check out my vocal compilation!

If you're looking for a female vocalist (lead and/or BGV) for your recordings, I have created a vocal compilation mp3 (4:48 long) featuring several song clips, and it is a good representation of my vocal skills in several genres. You can hear it on "My Music" player. I also play piano on clip #1 ("Just Imagine") of the compilation.

To find more samples of my vocal work, BGV work with male and female artists, piano work, string arrangements - as well as samples…
