Born and raised in Mount Oval, Co.Cork, Ireland, Lyra’s musical introduction took place aged 6, singing at her local church. Noticing her enthusiasm for music, her elder sister began teaching her harmonies and songs to perform for her family. It wasn’t long before she took up the drums, including the ‘bodhran’ drum, a sound prevalent in her music today.
April 2016 saw Lyra release her first offering, Rabbit In The Headlights, heralded “impressively polished” by Nialler 9, is an intensely brooding track, with lush production courtesy of Rupert Christie (Kate Bush, Aurora).
Her follow up, Emerald, hailed as ‘magical and otherworldly’ by Wonderland Magazine, showcases Lyra’s huge range – one minute delivering an ethereal whisper and the next an impressive crescendo to dramatic effect. Lyra’s debut EP, W.I.L.D, was released in July 2016.
