Comedienne with soul, freedom fighter with microphone, jazz-poet Lydia Lockett presents original words and kick-ass Jazz/R&B/Soul music.
Lockett has received many awards in prestigious artistic competitions: in Comedy (in French as well as English, in Spoken Word, as well as Visual Arts for both her paintings and drawings).
Lydia made memorable performances in television and stage productions (again in both English and French), including several jazz operas as well as in films, such as Ziad Touma’s, “Saved by the Belles”. Lockett sang backup for IRON MAIDEN in two Montreal concerts and appeared in their MTV video. Lydia also opened for Musiq Soulchild in 2005.
Very dedicated to artists, Lockett has founded, directed and hosted poetry shows, jazz shows and comedy shows giving other artists the opportunity to do their thing.
Lydia Lockett has written and performed 7 one-woman shows, usually with her band, “Lydia & the Easy Street”. Her most recent show was seen from June 12-19, 2011 in the Montreal Fringe festival.
