Here at Celeb Secrets Country, we’ve been following Liddy Clark‘s musical journey for quite some time. We know talent when we see it, and the 18-year-old is definitely one that should not be overlooked.
“I started singing when I was 7 years old,” Liddy told us during our meeting at Country Radio Seminar. “I was getting into musical theatre back then and did a lot of plays.”
Country was not always Clark’s calling. “When I was 12, I started doing more pop and top 40 material because that’s what I was really listening to back then. Around that time, my vocal coach asked if we could start getting me into songwriting and finding myself as a person, and I thought it was a cool idea,” she shared.
“I was really finding myself back then because I was learning how to song write, how to play guitar, and how to really truly become an artist. I was really drawn to the country music genre because I am from Texas and I grew up listening to that type of music. I also love the honesty of it and people who are in the business and how kind they are. That has shown true through my experience and I’m very glad that I stuck with it.”
Over the summer, Liddy released her single “Painted By Numbers,” which premiered right here on CS Country, and we loved the “ain’t scared” attitude that she puts in her music.
“Painted By Numbers has always been a journey song for me and to be able to share my experiences of insecurity and doubt with others can hopefully allow people to understand that everyone has their flaws. I truly hope that this song will help people learn to accept others and themselves for the things they like and don’t like,” Liddy told Celeb Secrets.
Since the release of “Painted By Numbers,” Liddy has seen her brand and music championed by the biggest purveyors of talent in the music industry, including spotlight opportunities from Disney.
“It’s been so much fun working with Disney! They’ve definitely had a huge impact! They were the first station that truly played my song in full rotation and it honestly just fully impacted me as a person,” Clark shared. “They have shown that they can support an independent artist without being on a major label to be supported by a radio.”
You should definitely keep an eye on Liddy this year, because she has A LOT of this happening these next few months.
“We’ll be putting out another single, which I’m really excited about. It’s called ‘Falling into You’ and its such a bop. I gotta say you’re going to be dancing like crazy to it. I’ll also be playing dates and tours all over the country. I’ll soon be going to California for college [I got into USC], and we’ll be making tons of radio rounds throughout the year. I am so excited.”
We can’t wait for Liddy’s new music! Make sure to follow her on Twitter at @LiddyClark.
