Poet and pop musician Lydia Daher thrills literary juries just as much as she does the music press. Her last two poetry books brought her various fellowships and prizes, most recently the 2012 Bavarian Art Promotion Prize. Rolling Stone has praised her ‘damned fine lyrics’. Her music is released on the legendary independent label Trikont. Lydia Daher’s combination of pop and poetry has brought her many appearances at music and poetry festivals, in theatres and in clubs. She and her band have most recently been invited to do concerts in Russia and Algeria by the Goethe Institute.
Daher’s current poetry collection, Insgesamt so, diese Welt was published in 2012 by Voland & Quist, and her latest album, Flüchtige Bürger, was released in 2010. Lydia Daher lives in Augsburg, where she is currently working on her new album.
