About Freya Ridings

Freya Ridings is a London-based singer, songwriter, and pianist with a notably rich, soulful vocal tone. After opening shows in the U.K. for Gavin James earlier in the year, she made her headlining debut in May 2017. Concentrating on plaintive ballads, the show doubled as her recording debut; Live at St. Pancras Old Church was released by Good Soldier Records that September. It included an acoustic version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs song "Maps." That year she also scored a U.K. Top Ten single with "Lost Without You." In 2018 she issued the sumptuous, slow-burn single "Ultraviolet" and collaborated with MJ Cole on the moody "Waking Up," as well as issuing a second live album, Live at the Omeara. Ridings' first studio EP, You Mean the World to Me, came out in early 2019; it was also her first release under a U.S. licensing deal with Capitol. Her eponymous debut studio full-length appeared that July, heralded by the single "Castles." ~ Marcy Donelson
