Singer, Composer and Teacher

Lydia Hendrikje is an emerging singer and composer from Germany. She is a versatile performer, excited by many different music styles and has been influenced by sounds from Brazil to India. She regularly plays with musicians from all over the world, which keep inspiring her, bringing something new and fresh to the music every time.

As a child, she often found herself browsing through her parents’ records, dreaming away with The Beatles and dancing around to Michael Jackson. She had discovered the love for performing by the age of five when she joined children’s choir. Her mother’s old piano intrigued her to take lessons and learn to play. Lydia Hendrikje studied at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands, where she graduated in 2012, majoring in ‘jazz vocals’.

In the summer of 2015, she obtained her Masters’ degree at Codarts in Rotterdam. Lydia is teaching music lovers of all ages. Her own music is a collision of lyrical strings meeting deep synthesizer sounds, with her light and crispy vocals flying on top.
