Residing in Nashville, the town nicknamed 'Music City', a town rife with history and music culture, Lydia Manuel continues to hone her craft, writing, creating and performing along side her musical heroes. There are plans in the works to record an Americana album later this year, for release in early 2016.

"My father was an avid music lover, and was often humming along to the radio, albeit off key. He had an extensive record collection that he enjoyed listening to, and thereby exposed us (Manuel and her siblings), to everything from Roger Miller, Kris Kristofferson, Tom T. Hall, Fats Domino and Nat King Cole, to World Music, and the soundtrack from Camelot. "My Mom's sister Annette, was a big fan of country music; Loretta Lynn, Tammy Wynette, Johnny Cash, George Jones and Conway Twitty. However, in my family, music just wasn't something you did, it was something we listened to, a way to relax. We were working class, not artists." So, despite the siren's call at a young age, it was not until Manuel moved to Nashville in January 2000, that she embraced her deep passion for music.

Lydia has performed at numerous world famous venues, including Douglas Corner Cafe, Historic Roberts Hall, The Commodore Grille, and the legendary Bluebird Cafe. Manuel is also one of a select few songwriters chosen by Emmy nominated director Stacey K. Black, to be filmed for the documentary about Nashville songwriters, titled "Send My Mail to Nashville".

In addition to creating and performing music, Lydia enjoys numerous hobbies, which include photography, bird watching, reading, and refinishing thrift store furniture. Despite being gregarious, she identifies as an introvert, and prefers spending a majority of her time out of doors, exploring the world with her friend, Oreo the Wonder Dog.
