INFO ENGLISH

Her long-awaited debut album has now been mixed in Atlanta by DazIkue (BB Boogie/Bugz In The Attic). LyricL promises, “a refreshing new outlook on spoken word hip hop,” a myriad of musical styles (Heidi Vogel, Kevin Mark Trail and DJ Spinna feature) and unapologetic originality. “Lyrical dexterity and openness to innovate, elate and debate,” she declares.

Born in London to Nigerian parents, Lyric L’s early and enduring musical influences came from home. Her father loved African jazz, gospel, High Life, Oriental Brothers and King Sunny Ade. “He used to entertain us when we were young by making human beatbox, chest tap-drum sounds and playing his hands as wind sounds … plus my Mommie dances and sings in her own key of happiness to this very day. That vibe and energy continues in my current works.”

“Music is the vernacular of the human soul” LyricL says, and she is fluent in many musical idioms. Lyricist, rapper and mentor, LyricL lights up mics and stages with her performances. Her eclectic catalogue spans Hip-Hop, Spoken Word, Jazz through to Afro and Broken Beat with a soulful edge and stirring grooves.

An often sought after and keen creative ally, LyricL has featured, recorded and toured with a range of talented musicians and producers including MJ Cole, Nathan Haines, Mark De Clive Lowe & Bugz In The Attic. She has also supported Izzi Dunn, The Roots, Omar, Incognito, Big Daddy Kane, Xantone Blacq and Ty.
