Pidlusky with Mark Bernstein & Brian Melick
232 Main Street - New Paltz NY 845-255-8811
acoustic night of jazz featuring Lydia's angelic vocals, Mark's elegant guitar and Brian's tribal drums
Lydia Pidlusky has a smooth and precise style of singing, inspired by jazz vocalists such as Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan, and enjoys singing bebop as much as crooning a ballad. Lydia is a graduate of the SUNY New Paltz Music Department, with a concentration in jazz performance, and her voice is a highlight of the Stronghold video games soundtrack which continues to have fans worldwide. Lydia continues to perform throughout the Hudson Valley, and will be in the recording studio this month as lead vocalist for the Richard Sorce Project, preparing to release their first album of original Latin jazz.
