Lydia

Formed in 2003 by five high school friends, Gilbert, AZ's Lydia quickly set to make a dent in the local scene with their poetic and tender take on indie rock. Similar in sound to South Dakota's the Spill Canvas, and often incorporating eloquent male/female vocal harmonies, the band comprised Leighton Antelman (guitar/vocals), Maria Sais de Sicilia (vocals/keyboards), Steven McGraw (guitar/organ), Loren Brinton (drums), and Evan Arambul (bass). Lydia first got noticed outside their hometown in the summer of 2004 when they won a national contest put on by Atticus, the music- and skate-oriented clothing company founded by members of blink-182. Their prize was inclusion on the third volume of Atticus' Dragging the Lake compilation series, released in early 2005. Lydia's fittingly titled song "Smile, You've Won" subsequently appeared alongside popular emo and punk acts like Fall Out Boy, Mae, Motion City Soundtrack, and Rise Against. Their debut album, This December; It's One More and I'm Free, surfaced that fall via HourZero, a label and management firm based out of Mesa. Also in 2005, everyone in the band was finally done with high school, and Lydia was able to begin touring full-time. Eventually, Mindy White stepped in to replace Sais de Sicilia. The crew jumped on a few weeks of summer 2006's Warped Tour, while also spending time on the road with acts like Spitalfield and Days Away. Touring eventually became too much for White, who bowed out herself that November, and the guys pressed on as a foursome as they looked for a permanent replacement. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

Lydia is by far my favorite band. Nothing new can compare to December or Illuminate. Call me old school.
i have yet to find another band/ artist who has a similar sound or feel (especially to their first two albums, the best ones in my opinion). they are completely unique and beautiful. no one can compare to their lyrics or their sound.
Lydia Is my favorite band. I've been listening to them for years now. I named my daughter Lydia. Their lyrics have moved me, and helped me through so much. On my 21st birthday last May, I saw them in Philly for the first time ever. I got to meet them and hang out with them. It was by far one of the most amazing and memorable experiences of my life. I still talk to the band to this day. I love them forever
I LOVE LYDIA ♥
Can't wait for the new album/tour. So stoked.

Check out the band... The Cinema if you love Lydia
Can't even remember how I found out about them, but am really glad I did(:

Lydia
Paint it Golden is Ahhhhhhhmazi n g
New Lydia album Paint It Golden OUT NOW!
Their Back!!!!!
Side note: Mindy went on to help form States and Maria is in a band called Bears of Manitou. Other side projects include: Steve - The Saturn Hands; Ethan - Gates; and Jim Petrosa - The Monday Mornings. All great amazing bands. ALSO, please check out The Cinema! Matt Malpass (producer of Illuminate and Assailants) and Leighton's new band. It will NOT disappoint!
This is probably the worst biography I've ever read of Lydia. Pandora apparently did not check any of their sources. Touring had nothing to do with why Mindy is not in the Lydia anymore, and did not bow out in Nov. 2006, but in 2009 after their Illuminate tour. None of they guys were looking for a replacement for Mindy White, in fact, Leighton was never looking for a backing female vocalist after her. Lydia is amazing whatever they do. There is so much more to this.
come back :(
doesn't get much better... Wish I could see them live.
