Lydia Ford is a singer-songwriter from Mayo, Ireland. Ford grew up in a musical household – her sister banged out Rachmaninoff every Saturday morning, while car journeys with mom involved a dose of Bruce Springsteen and Fleetwood Mac anthologies. At the age of 9 she picked up the guitar, inspired mainly by her adoration of pop-punk star Avril Lavigne. From there, she began writing and developing her own songs.
Currently based in New York City, Ford’s music now takes inspiration from her subway rides rather than the green coast of west Ireland. While the pop elements remain, life experiences and her formative twenties has added a more tongue-in-cheek approach to her lyrics. Ford continues to experiment and develop her bedroom productions with synths, strings, and electric guitars.

Flat Out are an Irish four piece who have developed their own unique Pop/Folk sound with a contemporary twist. Originating from Mayo and sharing an eclectic range of musical influences Bríd, Ciara, Harry and Mark are all vocalists and multi-instrumentalists.
‘Turn Out The Light’ has a very powerful meaning throughout the lyrics and was the official song approved by Pieta House to coincide with the ‘On Your Bike to Save a Life’ initiative, a fundraising cycle along the Wild Atlantic Way. Ciara from the band explains the inspiration behind the song – “The opening verse of Turn Out the Light immediately delves into a conversation I had with our friend about who we are and how much we have changed. The realisation of how unrecognisable they had become to themselves. Struggling with mental health alone is undoubtedly a scary process. I was taken aback to see someone I had perceived to be one of the strongest people close to me, crumble internally. The message we want to get across to everyone who struggles with their mental health is knowing that they can open up and that there is help out there” – ‘You held my hand, did not let go, you took me back to a place that I call home…there’s no need to turn out the light’
In 2015 Flat Out released their debut EP ‘Half Empty, Half Full‘, which featured four original songs and received fantastic radio airplay both in Ireland and abroad. March 2017 saw the release of their single “Dreamland”, which featured as Joe.ie’s ‘Song of the Day’ and reached #2 on the iTunes World Songs Chart in Ireland. Also armed with an impressive repertoire of covers, the band like to perform their take on anything from Nirvana to Nancy Sinatra and Elbow to Ed Sheeran.
This month the band won the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase and with their brand new single ‘Turn Out the Light’, co-produced and recorded with Martin Quinn in Jam Studios and set for release 18 August, this year promises to be a busy year for Flat Out.
