Freya Ridings is a rising UK singer/songwriter who's gotten a few Florence + the Machine comparisons, and she just made a brief stop in the US for NYC and LA shows (rescheduled from November). We caught her at NYC's Mercury Lounge on 1/17, and pictures of that show are in the gallery above.

Freya has more dates scheduled through March, all in the UK and Europe. Her self-titled debut album is due out May 31 via Good Soldier.
