Singer/Songwriter LYRA is currently out on the road as support on the entire run of the WESTLIFE UK Arena Tour, which means we means we get to see her live in Cardiff next month, for two nights.

Following the mammoth success of ‘Edge of Seventeen’, which achieved over 1 million streams across all platforms, garnered 28.5m global radio impacts, hit Top 10 in the official UK commercial dance charts and held 14 weeks on the Irish National airplay charts and 13 weeks on the Top 10 Irish Homegrown charts. LYRA has announced the release of her new single ‘29 Box‘.

The Cork native coined the term ‘29 Box which references the most common size dimension of Snapshots used to create the perfect aesthetic on social platform sites. The announcement follows her mesmerising performance in the Electric Arena at this year’s Electric Picnic Festival in Stradbally Co. Laois, where the record had its debut outing to a full capacity tent, the fan reaction has been incredibly positive.

Written by LYRA, mixed by UK music producer Ash Howes (Kylie, Jack Savoretti, Ellie Goulding, Dido), ‘29 Box‘ fuse’s LYRA’s dynamic powerhouse vocals that lean into the dark narrative of the record. Revealing her truth and experiences of being critical of one’s self online, LYRA taps into the awareness about the pressures of authenticity and the wider consciousness of portraying one’s internet self, verses reality.

This winter promises to be an unforgettable run for LYRA with the announcement of a full UK live run supporting WESTLIFE on their UK Arena Tour. Full dates and details in our feature HERE.

We put a call in to LYRA as she prepared to get ready for the UK leg of the tour. We chatted about her music and an early meeting, and getting to work with Rupert Christie, an award winning producer / arranger / songwriter. Of course, we had to start with the guys she’s on tour with – Westlife…….


29 Box is out now – a slow tempo sonic sound with woven dance elements and makes for a track that’s as infectious as it is heady. Thought provoking, the music matches LYRA’s emotions captured within her lyrics.

You can find out what LYRA is up to, and take a listen to the single on her website HERE.
