Powerhouse performer Lyra set to rock The Big Top


CORK singer/songwriter Lyra is a powerhouse performer made for the big stage.
Fresh from the release of her collaboration with DJ John Gibbons Lyra has announced details of her upcoming November Irish tour which includes a date in Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre and a date in Live at the Big Top.
Lyra will be supported throughout the tour by Dublin songwriter Saibh Skelly.
Her songs have been used on worldwide ad campaigns for Van Moof, Guinness, Disney+ and have featured in “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Love Island”.
Having self-released her debut EP W.I.L.D., produced by Rupert Christie, who also worked with Kate Bush, Coldplay and Aurora in 2016, the Cork-born Lyra signed a deal with a major label Universal. Universal released the single ‘Falling’.
A unique talent, she manages to produce a sound which captures the Celtic heart of music along with a blood flow of pop, haunting powerful ballads. Her songwriting comes from the heart and she has written about heartbreak, family, falling in love, regret and revenge.
In 2021 Lyra took her live show on tour and played multiple festivals and shows across UK and Ireland. She has performed on “The Late Late show”, “Tommy Tiernan”, “Heart of Saturday Night”, and “The Big Deal”.
Chosen by RTÉ to ring in New Year’s Eve 2021 and 2022 with “New Day” and “We Are Beautiful.” Lyra also performed and co-wrote with Bill Whelan the closing song “Light me up” for Riverdance, The Movie, which has had a worldwide release on Netflix.
Lyra is writing and recording her forthcoming album, her current single with Irish DJ and Producer John Gibbons ‘Edge of Seventeen’ achieved # 1 spot on Shazam Charts and holding inside # top 5 of the Irish Breakers Chart.
Her previous single “Lose My Mind” (with Shane Codd) has been LYRA’s biggest success to date, spending over six months in the national airplay charts Top 100.
Lyra plays Live at the Big Top, Limerick Milk Market on Friday November 4. www.dolans.ie
