“In the next few months, you won’t be able to go anywhere without hearing Freya Ridings.” – W Magazine
Freya Ridings emerged to be the surprise success story of 2018. Her breakthrough came with ‘Lost Without You’, one of those rare, once-in-a-lifetime songs that immediately put a previously under-the-radar artist on the map. Such was its word-of-mouth appeal that it hit the Top 10 on four separate occasions during a commanding six-month run in the Top 40. And in an era in which hits are inevitably written by committee, ‘Lost Without You’ saw Freya become the first female artist to have an entirely self-written Top 10 hit since Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’ returned to the charts in 2012. Cumulative global streams of “Lost Without You” are now approaching 200 million.
Her self-titled debut album came out on 19th July 2019.
