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 live 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.
“She clearly has incredible talent, layering harp loops over electronic beats and synths, creating ethereal and beautiful music topped with a stunning and powerful singing voice… (Reckless) is not just the best piece of locally produced music I’ve heard this year, it’s one of the best pieces of music I’ve heard anywhere. Somehow live it was even better, and it was fascinating to see how it was constructed on stage, using the harp and various pedals, linked to the electronics, topped with the vocals.”
Paul Jones, Evening News, review from Hydra Lerna’s EP launch party
“The song explores the emotions associated with trying to move on from a dark and dirty past, but it’s not a heavy listen – it’s an uplifting, cleansing tune.”
Gigslutz music blog on Clean Like You, Hydra Lerna.
“I’ve always got a lot of time for people that open up about troubles that they’ve had and how they try and work through them…and we’ve got a lot of time for good songs as well and that’s why we played that one.”
