Hydra Lerna is a singer/songwriter and harpist, but also an electronic pop music producer. A one-girl-show and qualified studio engineer, Hydra writes, records and produces all her music herself. Her lives shows are always intriguing, with the harp on the left of the stage, manipulated through a loop and multi-FX pedal, and her laptop and novation launchpad on the right; she operates both sides, all while singing her often dark and captivating lyrics.
Her live sound is 100% recreated live: what you hear on the record is what you see live.
Hydra Lerna has opened for artists including JP Cooper, Mullally, Billy Lockett, Let's Eat Grandma and Bryde, and early on in her career had the chance to play a showcase for Huw Stephens at the BBC Radio 1 Academy. BBC Introducing in Norfolk and BBC Introducing in Suffolk are fans of her music,
