LYRAS are a band based in the North of England. Taking influence from artists such as Corrine Bailey Rae, Moonchild and Hiatus Kaiyote, LYRAS use dreamy vocals and a sophisticated sonic backdrop to create a sound grounded in soul-pop, jazz and contemporary R&B. LYRAS are the sum of their parts, with their breezy, laid-back vibe on stage being the result of band members having worked in the Northern music scene for over 10 years.
However the band formed just weeks before the pandemic in 2020 and found themselves having to navigate a new musical landscape and the reality of getting a band off the ground with no opportunity to play live. The bided their time, recording and releasing 3 singles over the course of 2020/21 and made their live debut in August 2020, selling out their first socially-distanced headline show at Gosforth Civic Theatre.
