Lyra is a London six set Neo Soul – Electronic pop group combining epic and sweeping vocals, driving and rhythmic guitar lines, with a euphoric rhythmic sound. Lyra have been hard at work shaping a style and groove that can’t be ignored. In an age of recording artists, it is truly refreshing to find a band that is as good, if not better live than on recording.Lyra comprises Craig Norfords drum beats with funk edge aplenty, George Price’s smooth base lines, James Skingle’s R+B licks to his heavy solos, Ejike Nnodi’s Jazzy Keys, and Jenna Naylor-Tymon and Manon Vix’s soulful yet haunting vocals. Their neo-soul originals ooze an irresistibly euphoric rhythm.
