New single 'A Moment Ago' for free download in support of mental health awareness

As someone who has personally struggled with various mental health issues, I’m proud to raise my voice to encourage others to speak up and help eliminate the stigma that often accompanies mental illness. Music has always been a healing and cathartic outlet for me and I am so excited to share this song with you, which was inspired by my struggle with depression.

Thank you for listening! :)

LYRA

Based out of Edmonton, Alberta, Lyra has been writing, recording and performing as a solo artist for a decade. 

While she writes all the music and lyrics on piano, she often performs with a band at her live shows. Her music is an eclectic blend of piano-driven indie pop/piano whimsy with a prominent focus on compelling, surreal lyrics. 


She released her debut album, The Language of Eyes, in 2015, followed by a music video for her single “Cheek & Bruise”. She has performed at several festivals: The Edmonton, Calgary and Canmore Folk Festivals, The Edmonton Fringe Festival and UP+DT Festival. The Language of Eyes finished at #7 on CJSR’s Top 300 albums of 2015 and she was nominated for 4 awards at the 2016 Edmonton Music Awards. 


In June 2017, she released her newest single, "A Little Vulture Told Me", followed by a music video. In April 2018, she was nominated for 6 Edmonton Music Awards, winning Music Video of the Year, Adult Alternative Recording of the Year and Singer/Songwriter of the Year. In May 2018, the video for "A Little Vulture Told Me" won best music video at the Alberta Film & Television 2018 Rosie Awards. She is currently working on completing her next album.
