"Country Music Starlet"

Like other 17-year-olds, Liddy Clark likes to go to the movies or hang out with friends at the beach. Unlike other teens, though, Liddy goes to a recording studio after school for two or three hours a day and takes frequent trips to Nashville, where she collaborates with other songwriters.

"I don't have much time to do homework," says the Parkland resident and North Broward Preparatory School senior. Liddy is becoming a familiar voice to South Florida audiences, having recently represented the country music genre at Duende 2015, the grand finale of Broward County's centennial celebration.

With her sweet, rich, "favorite cup of hot cocoa" voice and expressive songwriting, Liddy may become known to a wider audience this year. Her soon-to-be-released but not-yet-titled album features many original songs, put together at West End Recording Studios in Pompano Beach. Her co-producer Pete Masitti, who has worked with artists including Toni Braxton, Shakira, and Kelly Rowland, says Liddy is "gifted with great natural instincts as a vocalist."

Liddy's Nashville colleagues also praise her talents. Co-producer, songwriter, and collaborator Stokes Nielsen says, "Liddy connects with her generation because she speaks the truth in her songs. What impresses me most in her songwriting is her honesty and ability to capture emotions that are uncanny for someone her age."

Many of Liddy's songs relate to the challenges - especially emotional insecurity - faced by so many teens. Her music may help people her age to accept that their feelings aren't unique and that negativity can be defeated.

"A lot of my songs have to do with the frustrations of being a teenager," Liddy says.

"Some days you feel like the whole world is against you. You just have to look to the next day and say, 'I have to give a little bit of faith to this day because it might turn out OK,'" she says, referring to one of the album's songs, A Little Faith.

The first single from the album, Painted by Numbers, also conveys an affirming message. "The song is about not being labeled by numbers that try to define society. I want to send the message that you are who you are. You have to forget everyone else and all of the negativity. That's how you can overcome insecurity."

Country music is in Liddy's genes. Her cousin Drew Womack, former Sons of the Desert frontman, collaborated with Liddy on her album. Her ever-supportive family includes mom Shana, who travels with Liddy back and forth to Nashville and is her biggest fan.

Ever since she was a young child, Liddy has demonstrated talent and passion for music, taking lessons with a vocal coach since age 7. While going through the process of discovering her musical style, she experimented with musical theater and pop until country music captured her imagination. The realness of country music speaks to her. "It isn't made up, like everything else," she says, citing Kacey Musgraves' witty songwriting as an inspiration.

Liddy's youthful songs of self-acceptance and empowerment will undoubtedly expand country music. Plans for the next year include going on tour to promote the new album. Her enthusiasm to share her music is contagious and naturally involves family.

"I want to go on a major tour with a major act and play all over the United States. I want to meet people from different countries, different continents, and play to different fans. I want to sell a lot of CDs and make my music known to everybody.

"And I'm going to take my mom with me!" - The Parklander

Bio

Liddy Clark is an eighteen-year- old singer/songwriter who forges a fresh, new path in country music with keep-it- real lyrics and trailblazing sonic landscapes.  Her music blends a world-wide-open youthfulness and “ain’t-scared” attitude, topped-off with a definitive hallmark vocal that has led to over 275,000 Facebook followers.

“These songs chart the journey I’ve experienced over the past few years; including loss, love and trying to be yourself in a world where it’s sometimes easier to live on someone else’s terms.” Says the young songwriter, “I think a lot of young people can relate to being pushed around, and I certainly have had my share of challenges.  With my music, I want to draw a line in the sand and promote being yourself.” -Liddy Clark

Over the past 6 months Liddy has seen her brand and music championed by the biggest purveyors of talent in the music industry, including spotlight opportunities from Disney.  In rarefied air for artists of her age, these opportunities, paired with a work ethic that sees the fiery red-head churn out two-hour sets regularly, have proven her as a welcome addition to the global music scene.

Her story starts with the ability to craft a song.  Songwriting runs in the family, as Liddy’s cousin Drew Womack (Sons of the Desert) penned 9 top-10 Billboard Country songs including Kenny Chesney’s #1 smash, “She’s Got It All”.  A natural storyteller, Liddy blends the gritty lyricism of her birth state, Texas, with the modern sounds of country music, resulting in a unique sound that feels like home for her. 

Beyond her music, Liddy has been featured in print ads for national brands American Girl, Scholastic Book Club, as well as an X-factor commercial with industry innovator Simon Cowell.  She has also been chosen by Seventeen Magazine as a Social Influencer with the “Seventeen Social Club”, and tabbed by Seventeen to be the first-ever Seventeen PROStyles Twitter and Instagram Takeover participant in country music.  

From a touring perspective, Liddy performs nationally and throughout South Florida,  and has opened for Joe Nichols, Scotty McCreery, Jake Owen, Eric Paisley, Josh Turner, Chase Bryant and Taylor Hicks.  Liddy has also been invited to play highly exclusive brand activation events; such as, full sets at Loretta Lynn’s ranch in Hurricane Mills, TN, 99.9FM KISS Country Chili Cook Off in Miami, FL, NASCAR Championship Weekend in Homestead, FL, 103.1FM WIRK Rib Round Up in WPB, FL, and at Major League baseball games, and for many charities including Wounded Warrior, American Cancer Society, Miami Dolphins Cancer Challenge, Make-A- Wish Foundation, Junior Achievement and Equine Assisted Therapies. 

Liddy’s effortless blend of trailblazer bravery and girl-next- door sincerity have forged a strong image that connects seamlessly with music lovers everywhere.  For Liddy Clark, there is no “can’t”, only live for today and come out swinging. So grab your headphones, hit play, and start reaching for the horizons you’ve always wanted. And why not……..Liddy is.
