If I had a thousand hearts of my very own, oh what would I do when I brought them home?
-Biography Written by Mark Spearman
Think back to the twilight of your childhood, on the far edge of rational memory, that finite span of days when things were possible. When you knew deep in your bones that given the right magic, despite everything the world insisted to the contrary, you might somehow have the power to fly.
Try to remember the heady rush of euphoria and fear when you locked eyes with your middle school crush. Reach back, if you can, to the oceanic calm you felt the first time a lover’s kiss was given unexpectedly, for no other reason than you needed one.
Combine images and feelings, mix two parts romantic ingénue to one part comedic heroine. Serve with an artistic sensibility at once understated and bigger than the sky, channeled through a voice that’s like keeping in your pocket, all to yourself, the sweetest, most reassuring love letter you ever received.
And you might have some idea who Lyric Everly is.
It may be more kismet than causal that you are reading these words. Lyric Everly and her music tend to find people, not the other way around.
Her voice is authentic and true. And as for Lyric the songwriter, we don’t pretend to know where her inspiration originates, or anything else for that matter that goes on in her pretty, whimsical little head. We do know that she likes shiny things, lovely people, butterfly kisses, bunny rabbits.
She likes to twirl, and to giggle, and to dream.
And she likes you. Can you tell?
But best of all, she writes it all down, and then sings to us about it.
All you have to do is listen.
