Freya Ridings has just announced that she’ll be bringing her unique brand of lovelorn and heartstring-pulling pop to the shores of Australia for the first time ever.
UK pop-sensation with a penchant for the piano is the rising star on everyone’s lips from Florence Welch to Taylor Swift. Her breakthrough song in 2018, ‘Lost Without You’, was a platinum-selling hit, and even thinking about the piano notes plodding along in that track will make me cry. Ridings has toured the entire world, and now she’s finally coming down under for two intimate shows.
Becoming a surprise success story with her single, ‘Lost Without You’, a once-in-a-lifetime song that immediately put Freya on the map, the heartbreak hit which was synched 16 times for TV and film, including high-profile placements in the US on American Idol and Grey’s Anatomy went on to chart in the Top 10 on seven separate occasions during a six-month run in the Top 40.
Earlier this year Freya released her highly anticipated self-titled debut album before completing her biggest UK tour to date. Here she performed to more than 23,000 people, with more than 5,000 of those located in London. While ‘Lost Without You’ established Freya’s rising star status, it was the strength of her live shows that first earned her a word-of-mouth fanbase.
Her debut album features previously released singles ‘Lost Without You’, ‘You Mean The World To Me’, ‘Blackout’ and ‘Castles’, with Freya writing all of the eleven songs that feature on the album, underpinning her world-class credentials as a songwriter.
Freya’s vibrato-rich voice offers up a balm for a world of hurt. Every song is hand-crafted like sacred origami, and ably houses the vocal talents that Ridings has to offer. Underpinned by soft, tender piano, and often dealing in themes of loss, grief, growth and estrangement, Freya Ridings is an unmissable act, whose album tracklist is perfectly filled with raw, tactile and earthbound ballads of the heart.
