Her début single and personal homage to her early musical influences such as David Bowie, Velvet Underground and Van Morrison, "Starman" is another stand out song from Lydia Baylis about "if you ever felt like the last one left". She describes the song as having "an element of The Litte Prince, a touch of the fairytale of a knight in shining armour in the form of a Starman from outside our 'world' to take you away". It has a beautiful piano-led milieu - sonically can be likened to Christina Perry's "The Lonely and A Thousand Years" somewhat - which is accompanied by spaced out drum patterns and a captivating string arrangement that just brings the song full circle in superb fashion.
Lydia’s latest single, "Autumn Soil" is a beautifully sung Country/Folk song, heavy with soulful lyrics and religious connotations such as, “and oh the land outside is quiet, to watch the rain baptize the road, full and heavy as the autumn soil, I am waiting to be found". Backed excellently by lush acoustic guitars, double bass arrangements and the softest of drum patterns, "Autumn Soil" sums up some of what is captivating about Lydia Baylis - deft, soft, gentle, welcoming and compelling.
