2017 was a monumental year for 23-year-old Londoner Freya Ridings. It was a year filled with a plethora of highlights that included Freya releasing her debut single ‘ Blackout’ in May 2017 to critical acclaim. Produced by Rich Costey (Muse, Biffy Clyro, Frank Turner), it has since flown past 2m streams on Spotify alone, received airplay from the UK to US and beyond and had the Sunday Times gushing that Blackout is “a plangent, piano led introduction to an extraordinary talent.”
With praise so early on in her music career, it is clear to see why Freya has quickly amassed quite the fanbase, resulting in her first two London shows and UK tour being completely sold out as well as being invited to support artists including Lewis Capaldi, Tash Sultana, Dotan, Ray LaMontagne, Tears For Fears and Gavin James all in 2017. Delivering mesmerizing performances at each and every show, Freya’s ethereal vocals were perfectly captured in her live album ‘ Live at St Pancras Old Church ’ that was released in September 2017, as a gift to her fans.
Just prior to this, Freya released her second single, ‘ Maps’ (a breathtaking version of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs original song) that helped to build upon the foundations that Blackout laid as word begins to spread of this young talent, leading perfectly into Freya’s next release ‘Lost Without You’ that would prove to be Freya’s most reactive track to date.
Mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse, David Bowie) the haunting ballad became Apple’s “Best of The Week” track on release, smashed through 2 million streams on Spotify in its first month, has found a fan in Taylor Swift who included it in her Songs Taylor Loves Playlist and become a sync favourite having been included in several film and TV trailers as well as picked as the sound-bed to Nokia’s Christmas advert.
‘Lost Without You’ even had the UK’s Independent tip her as one to watch for 2018, commenting that “her voice is rich and soulful, with stunning depth and emotion” . With nods from the media like this and all of her achievements so early on in her career it is no wonder why 2018 is already shaping up to be the year Freya breaks through into the mainstream.
In March 2018, Freya will release her debut full-length album (featuring Blackout, Maps and Lost Without You) and accompany this with tours across UK, Europe and America, with sold out shows already in place in London, New York and Los Angeles.
Such is demand for Freya, that a wave of festival slots have already come in for 2018 and a subsequent London show at the infamous Union Chapel will go on sale ahead of her sold-out January show at the Omera. One thing is for sure, that Freya Ridings will be the name on everyone's lips by the end of 2018.
