While Lydia Price’s music covers several different styles what really clicked for me was her Soulful R&B tracks that grab your attention and don’t let go with their rhythmic beats. That’s why I decided to feature her on the blog.

My music comes from the scriptures and from my life’s journey. I write about what God says in His Word because I believe it. I believe in the music I put out and trust that it will bless those who hear it. Coming up, my musical influences varied. As the youngest of a large family, along with a Latin father, it made for a very diverse musical household. My biggest gospel music influences were the Hawkins family. Edwin, Walter, Lynette and Tramaine’s music has inspired me the most. I love the works of Helen Baylor, The Clark, Williams and Pace Sisters and so many others whose shoulders I know I’m standing on; but none more important than the Holy Spirit Himself. No other influence has had a greater impact on my life….

From 1986 to 1996, I was a local NYC artist who had several projects throughout those years. I had my share of highs as well as lows; trying to make it in the R&B industry. I got close…a few times…but that was about it. During one of the “low’ times in my life, I needed a change. The music wasn’t happening and neither was anything else. I found myself now residing on the other side of thebridge…New Jersey.
June 2, 1996, I heard the call one Sunday morning during a 10:30am service. The invitation to accept Jesus Christ went out and my hand went up. Since that day the music, for me, has changed. I no longer have the desire to sing about those things that I used to sing about. I now know why I was given to ability to do the things that I can do musically. It was to glorify the king. That’s what it was all along. I’m no longer seeking anything from the world. I’ve finally found what I was searching for.
