|Irish born artist LYRA is set to embark on her first ever North American tour with virtual tour dates presented by Live Nation starting Thursday, April 16th. LYRA will perform different sets for each of her tour dates which will be available for live viewing on Live Nation’s newly launched Live From Home platform as well as hosted across Live Nation and House of Blues’ regional social media channels (dates and links below).
The Cork singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist recently released her anthemic new single ‘Mother’, an ode to LYRA’s Mum’s powerful words of encouragement to forget your insecurities and rise above the haters. The release of ‘Mother’, chosen by Virgin Media for their new campaign in Ireland, follows on from recent singles ‘Falling’, ‘Never Let Go’ and ‘Emerald’. The singles have caused a real stir, particularly in Ireland where she has already been playlisted and heavily supported across national radio. The hit single “Mother” is featured on Spotify’s A Breath of Fresh Éire playlist, and also entered the Spotify Viral Daily 50 and the iTunes pop charts in Ireland.
A perfect blend of dark electronic pop, LYRA’s creativity manifests itself in songs, stories and art. Her love of vocal talents such as Kate Bush, Lykke Li and Bat for Lashes is obvious: part vintage, part contemporary, she exudes a sense of being free from the constraints of time and era. LYRA is back in the studio working on new music between London and Los Angeles for her debut album, which will be released in 2020.
Lyra performed a cover of ‘Mothers Of The Disappeared’, for The Joshua Tree – New Roots album, in aid of the LauraLynn Children’s Hospice in 2017 and last year performed a cover of ‘I Only Want To Be With You’, for American TV series, Four Weddings And A Funeral on Hulu.
