Lydia Rodriguez Fernandez (aka Lydia) is a platinum-selling Spanish pop singer, songwriter, and frontwoman for Presuntos Implicados. She began working in professional circles when she was barely a teenager, and released her self-titled debut album at age 16 for WEA Latina. She dedicated the single "El Tacto de Su Piel" to her inspiration and countryman Alejandro Sanz, and the album took off. It went platinum, making her an overnight sensation. In all, she released five singles from the album.
Her second full-length, Cien Veces al Día, was issued in 1998. It featured the title track as a lead single -- the first of four -- and went gold. A year later, she performed "Cien Veces al Dia" at the Eurovision competition, and the album was reissued in a special edition.
Over the next several years, she continued to appear on television, tour infrequently, and release singles, including a noteworthy cover of the Beatles' "Across the Universe," which became the lead single for her final solo record, Si No Me Pides la Vida, in 2002. The title cut was issued as a duet with Nacho Campillo. That same year she also sang with Spanish metal group Mägo de Oz on the recording of their rock opera Jesús de Chamberí.
In 2006 she sat in with old friends, Spanish rock and pop group Presuntos Implicados, to fill a gap left by vocalist Sole Giménez, who'd left the band after 20 years. Although most of her 2007 was taken up as a cast member of the touring Jesus Christ Superstar, Lydia rehearsed with Presuntos Implicados on occasion and in 2008, became the group's permanent lead vocalist. ~ Thom Jurek
