Lydia Kitto has garnered every experience in the music industry, from being a writer to producer, singer, and instrumentalist.

Her first musical journey started at the University of Essex, where Lydia Kitto performed on Sofar Sound Colchester on 24 March 2016 as a lead vocalist and pianist.

After the release of Back on 74 track from Volcano album, fans started following Lydia, and her voice became noticeable to many.

Before the release, many didn’t know her as some Reddit fans said, “Does anyone know the name of the female singer from the LA show? I’ve seen Jungle 5 times now but i think this is the first time i’ve paid attention to female singer in back. Maybe it’s because some of the songs on the new album feature it more? I think she’s new but not positive. Anyway i thought she absolutely stole the show yesterday.”

Another replied, “Lydia Kitto is credited as co-writer on Volcano and some songs on Love in Stereo.” So, maybe the stage of the Jungle gave Lydia the fame she deserved.

The tracklist of the Volcano album also mentions Josh Lloyd, Thomas McFarland, and Lydia Kitto as the writers, but she does not seem to have a Wikipedia like the founder members.

Yet, her Instagram post shows that she has a sister, Lucy Kitto, who is also into the music field, as her bio mentions her as the co-founder of Rhizome Audio, a music production studio.
