Who is Lydia Night?
Lydia Night was born in New Orleans, Louisiana USA, on 13 October 2000 – her zodiac sign is Libra, and she holds American nationality. She’s a musician and an actress, who’s probably known best for being the lead singer of the rock punk band the Regrettes.
Early life and education
Lydia was raised alongside her younger brother in New Orleans, by their father Morgan Higby Night, who’s a musician and the owner of a nightclub, and their mother who’s a housewife.
Lydia became interested in singing at a very early age, and was only two years old when she began performing at her father’s nightclub, singing the song “Beat on the Brat” by the Ramones. When she was six years old, the family moved to Santa Monica in California, and not long afterwards to Los Angeles.
Lydia was seven years old when she joined her first band, LILA (Little Independent Loving Artists), and they mostly performed at school events, as well as at McCabe’s guitar shop in Santa Monica. She continued singing throughout her entire education, and upon matriculating from Grand Arts High School in 2019, Lydia didn’t enroll at college, but chose to focus on her career.
Career as a musician
In 2012, aged 11, Lydia and the American musician and actress Marlhy Murphy founded the rock-pop duo Pretty Little Demons. They performed at the 2013 South by Southwest festival, becoming the festivals’ youngest performers. They were noticed by the famous Canadian actor Ryan Gosling, who then invited Lydia to join his rock band Dead Man’s Bones, which she declined.
In 2013, the girls’ debut extended play (EP) was released, entitled “Flowers”, and the following year saw the release of their debut studio album, entitled “Unknown Species”.
In 2015, Lydia and Marlhy changed the duo’s name to the Regrettes, and in October of the same year released their next EP “Hey!”, as well as the music video “Hey Now!”, which has since been listened to over 3.2 million times on YouTube. In the early 2016, Marlhy left the duo, and three new people became members of the Regrettes – Maxx Morando, Sage Chavis and Genessa Gariano – thus making it a band.
On 13 January 2017, they released their new album “Feel Your Feelings Fool!”, and in 2018, their EP entitled “Attention Seeker” was released.
