Lido is in his own lane, on his own terms, living his own truth. Hailing all the way from Norway, real name Peder Losnegård produces, sings, songwrites, and plays multiple instruments — his two favorites being the piano and drums. At two years old, his parents gave him a drum kit… the rest was history.
Fast forward to 2020, Lido has collaborated closely with the likes of Chance The Rapper, Diplo, Jaden Smith, and of course, Halsey. But now, he’s focused on his own artistry. After a string of singles, fans can look forward to his forthcoming project titled Peder, which is his birth name.
King Ice caught up with Lido at Soho House West Hollywood to discuss his opinions on artists wearing jewelry.
Do you feel like you should wear jewelry as an artist?
I like jewelry. I’ll wear it sometimes, but I don’t have any right now. It depends on your artistic expression. I don't think you have to wear jewelry. I have stronger feelings about people who hide behind their jewelry, because I think that's the case very often.
You mean the big chains?
Or however people are doing it. I’m more intrigued with people who do it in a classy way, rather than people who feel they need external things to get seen. Jewelry is dope, unless you’re compensating with it.
What can we expect next?
I’m definitely going to be touring a bunch. Since there’s such a specific story to the album, there’s a million things I want to do. I’m writing a book right now about that story (Peder), I’m doing an additional album that's happening on the side. I’m doing a ton of videos, so I’m focusing on trying to get everything right. Then when the album comes out, I’ll figure out everything else after.
