Pop / Singer-Songwriter
Freya Ridings is a rising pop artist based out of London. Having received praise from the likes of Florence Welch and Taylor Swift, she is making a powerful name for herself in the pop world before her self-titled debut album is even released. Driven by her hauntingly deep vocal lead, Ridings' utilizes resonant pianos and anthemic background vocals to accentuate the elegance of her songwriting.
The English singer is set to release her debut LP, Freya Ridings, in July 2019 via Good Soldier Songs. The record will feature 12 songs, including tracks that Ridings has already released as singles such as "You Mean the World to Me" and "Lost Without You." Aside from a cover of Yeah Yeah Yeahs "Maps," the singer had a hand in writing every song on the album - an uncommon feat in the era of pop-songwriting collectives. During album production, Ridings worked with a superstar cast of industry professionals. Credits include producers Mark Crew (Bastille, Rag’N’Bone Man) and Dan Nigro (Charli XCX, Lewis Capaldi) as well as mixers Serban Ghenea (Halsey, Ariana Grande) and Tom Elmhirst (Lady Gaga, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie), among others.
Ridings made her television debut earlier this year with a performance of "Lost Without You" on The Late Late Show With James Corden. and will be joining Hozier in October on the fall leg of his North American tour. Safe to say, W Magazine said it best - "In the next few months, you won't be able to go anywhere without hearing Freya Ridings."
