Nashville singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Lydia Luce announces her latest song “Maybe In Time,” along with a stunning video produced by Alysse Gafkjen that was choreographed by Luce herself. Beautiful imagery, interpretive dance numbers, and a warm color palette breathe life into this incredible piece of art.

Co-written with Raymond Joseph, the song blends layers of acoustic guitar, delicate orchestral arrangement, and acoustic piano, highlighting the musicality and enduring beauty of Luce’s sparkling vocal delivery. With this measured and contemplative ballad, she reflects on her religious upbringing, and the common ground she eventually found with her family.

Growing up in a strict musical household, Lydia Luce was a virtuoso from six years old. She has established herself as the go-to strings session player in Nashville, working with top-tier artists from Dolly Parton to Eminem. Now she steps into the spotlight with her album Dark River, due out February 26. The album, with a distinct blend of classical, vintage pop, and indie rock influences, has caught the attention of tastemakers from NPR Music, Nashville Scene and Under The Radar.

Growing up in a religious family, I have often questioned the existence of God. Music led me to spaces filled with people that did not believe the same things I did. I started to question the beliefs I was raised with and became curious about other possibilities. — Lydia Luce

Dark River follows Lydia Luce's debut solo album Azalea, released in 2018, which established her as a notable emerging talent in Nashville and beyond. Luce also leads Lockeland Strings, a community arts organization that puts on monthly showcases for local artists.
