Lydia Cash grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. After graduating from Auburn University with a degree in Fine Art and Music, she moved to Chicago in 2013 with no plan or job leads, only the dream of living in a city and making her way as an independent painter and musician.


After finding success as a painter, Cash moved to Nashville in 2021 to further pursue her music career. A relative of Johnny Cash, Lydia rediscovered her connection to country music while living in Nashville and bartending on lower Broadway. 


Cash made her return to Chicago in 2023 and has since deepened her connection to the country music scene locally - a thriving, inclusive, supportive group of musicians that challenge the stereotypes of what country music is. 


Inspired by artists such as Kacey Musgraves, Nikki Lane, and Sheryl Crow, along with her love for indie and emo rock, Cash is creating something new on the country music scene that celebrates storytelling with raw, unadorned vocals and haunting melodies. Her vulnerability and at times brutal honesty found within her songs is her greatest strength in connecting to her audience. Cash hopes that this openness encourages her listeners to grow in kindness and empathy towards each other, through themes of heartbreak, struggles in marriage and relationships, celebrating small moments in everyday life, and her love for the city of Chicago.


Cash is currently recording new music and plans to release her new album in the fall of 2023.
