Lydia Sutherland, a talented 22-year-old singer-songwriter has released her very first single “Love Me.” The song is a powerful self-love anthem about overcoming personal struggles after finding someone who accepts you for who you truly are. Written by Sutherland, Chris Yurchuck, Spencer Clarke, and Justin Kudding, “Love Me” describes the journey of falling for a person who helps you fall in love with yourself. The upbeat pop-country song is produced by Spencer Cheyne and Kudding who both have worked on albums/played with many notable artists such as Mackenzie Porter, Brett Kissel, High Valley, and Lindsay Ell.
“I chose to release “Love Me” as my first single because of my personal struggle with self-love. My whole life has been a series of wishing I was someone else and judging myself for the things I couldn’t necessarily change. Looking back now, I wish I had someone to look up to, relate to, and learn from. Someone to remind me that everything I was experiencing was completely normal. I’ve come a long way but I still don’t have it all figured out, my only hope is whoever is going through similar struggles as me will want to come along for the ride so we can figure it out together” Sutherland explains.
From Godmanchester, QC Sutherland first released French pop material and was discovered on the hit TV show La Voix in 2018 before coming back to her country roots. Now working on her first English EP inspired by new country artists such as Kelsea Ballerini, Carly Pearce, and Maddie & Tae, Sutherland’s sound is defined by her unique tone, catchy melodies, and relatable sensibility. Writing with artists all across Canada, the US, and Australia, Sutherland now has an impressive 500+ songs in her catalog.

Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
