A pseudonym adopted when she was in high school, Lomelda offers quiet, introspective lo-fi by singer/songwriter Hannah Read.
A native of Silsbee, Texas, Read followed in the footsteps of her older brother and sister by starting on the guitar at an early age. As Lomelda, she grew a fan base in the Waco area while in college and added a backing band before self-releasing her 2012 debut, Late Dawn Inheritance. Co-produced by her brother Tommy Read, it featured a small group of guests on strings and drums and was soon picked up by Austin-based Slow Divide Records. After she toured more extensively, Lomelda's second album, Forever, arrived in 2015 via Punctum Records. Released in April 2016, 4E captured a live solo performance of Forever at Waco's Meadows Recital Hall. With word of her low-key, intimate songcraft spreading, Lomelda then accepted an invitation to tour in support of Pinegrove and signed a record deal with Double Double Whammy. The label released her third studio LP, Thx, in September of 2017. ~ Marcy Donelson, Rovi
