Leeda “Lyric” Jones is one of my favorite Asheville musicians, and she’s looking for crowdfunding support for a new EP she’s titled Perspective. Lyric has launched an indiegogo campaign seeking $5,000. More:
Hi everyone! It’s been over four years since I’ve brought you anything new, and I’m excited to finally be able to do so. On this new EP my band and I have recorded four new tracks for YOU, our fans! I hope that you will help us fund this project, and join us at our EP Realease show on December 11th at the Isis Music Hall!
Check out the video below – it’s really sweet. And here’s a bit more about Lyric from a 2010 story at hypenc.com:
I asked Lyric when she started singing… with a look as if a good friend entered the room… she told me she had been singing since she could remember. She went on to tell me about sitting on her father’s lap as a small child. “He would sing a line to me and I would sing it back to him” Lyric said. It was easy to see how special the relationship with her father is to her. A relationship that continues today. Lyric’s father plays the bass, and joins Lyric when she plays with her full band. Lyric not only has a beautiful voice but does a fine job playing guitar as well. She started playing keyboards as a child, sung growing up, but didn’t start playing guitar until a couple of years ago. It seems like learning to play the guitar has really fueled Lyric’s talent… it will be fun to see how far this STAR will rise
Lyric really is a rare talent even amongst all of the other talents here in WNC.
