Lydia Persaud Words For Her

by Walter Price

Toronto singer-songwriter Lydia Persaud’s most recent soulful single, “Words For Her”, is an impactful somber slow jam that’ll have fans of Sade, Anita Baker, and Erykah Badu adding this song about navigating the ins and outs of falling in love to their favorite life is a highway playlist.

Featured on her overwhelmingly brilliant 8-track album, “Mood31”, this single is another reason why I’ve predicted that Persaud is an artist we’ll not soon forget. She’s writing songs from her own personal emotional travels, but she also offers the listener to absorb and reflect on their own experiences through her songs. “Everyone has personal moments that mark their love story. These cherished memories belong to them, regardless of how small or insignificant they are. I hope you are able to reflect on your own intimate moments as you listen.

“I wrote this album to value and validate the experiences that we have, as well as to honour our growth as people.”

“After ten years of playing music, I’m beginning to recount the past and bring my multiple experiences into what I’m doing. After all, I make music to honestly connect with others who might feel the same way. I hope Moody31 celebrates and validates the human experience in all its contradictions: how new love can be experienced alongside deep loss, how one can crave solitude and connection, simultaneously. It’s beautiful to embrace all of our moods – it’s living.” – Lydia Persaud
