After the 2013 release of her debut EP Indian Summer (Black Box), and shows through the fall in her hometown Toronto, synth-pop songstress Lyon is excited to road-test her songs and share them with audiences across Canada in the new year. Kicking off on February 26, 2014 in St. Catharines, ON, the tour will take Lyon to Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and BC, opening for Wake Owl. Dates are listed below. While you wait for Lyon to arrive in your town, check out the latest instalment in her 80’s cover series – her version of Alphaville’s Forever Young – and stay tuned for music videos for the EP tracks Lullaby and Floating, coming in January and February of 2014.
The beauty of Lyon’s infectious brand of synth-pop is rooted in contradiction. Not in the deliberate sense, but in the serendipitous one. Described as innocence meets disillusionment and disillusionment meets hope, Indian Summer is electronic music with a human soul by the girl next door who has a secret. The EP’s title track made CBC Radio 3’s R3-30 Countdown, charting for 8 weeks and hitting #3, while the video has been on M3’s Daily Top 20 Countdown for the last 10 weeks, hitting #1 on October 1st.
Front-woman, Lauren Malyon AKA Lyon is a small town girl who fell in love with the big city. Lauren began playing violin at the age of 3, piano at the age of 6, began songwriting at the age of 15 and in the summer of 2012, she teamed up with writer/producer/programmer, Japeth Maw and created Lyon.
