"RoseRed is infectious, huggable and loveable but above all, she is a supreme musical talent oozing originality and a certain quality and honesty with the way she delivers her songs..."  

David Durant, Head of Live & Unsigned Music, Brooklands Radio

RoseRed And The Butterflies, aka Lydia Nicolaides is a prolific singer/songwriter from north London Enfield. She pens catchy lyrics and silver tongued melodies that tell stories in a refreshing and original way. With a mixture of realism, fun, quirkiness and sadness, RoseRed’s music can move effortlessly from lightness into dark, and her style crosses a variety of genres, from Folk to Rock; from Country to Reggae. ‘Imagine Mary Poppins on acid’ playing the guitar and dancing like a pixie.

RoseRed released her eagerly awaited debut album ‘Just A Glimmer’ in 2010 an album which she wrote, recorded, produced and funded herself, in-between several years of playing the London gig circuit and which got voted and won the Fatea Magazine debut album of the year 2010 Award.

She has had two of her songs feature in two British Independent Films 'Jesus Versus The Messiah' and 'Chinese Burns'. She has just released her second album New Age Drifter.
