An independent yoga-loving dreamer, San Francisco based Lesley Greer, who goes by the stage name Lyra Star, creates entirely new worlds with her music, and her listeners get to live inside it when they press play.
As a solo artist, her imagination and creativity truly shine through her work while her pure, ethereal vocals and profound lyrics reveal a highly aware, genuinely creative soul that never lets go of the importance of following her dreams. One of those dreams is coming to fruition this March, as she releases her debut album, aptly titled A Thousand Dreams.
Lyra Star will be greeting 2018 with this new collection of songs, characterized by lush orchestral arrangements and her magical signature vocals. Recorded at Soundwire Studios in Fairfax, CA, “A Thousand Dreams” is a collection of songs that are meant to transport the listener through vivid imagery.
Star explains. “I was a visual art major in college, and in a lot of ways, songwriting has become my paint palette over the last four years. I worked closely with the producer, Christopher Krotky, to create the right mood for each song, and this album is really representative of my growth as a singer/songwriter over the last four years. I’ve come a long way since my first open mic night, and I’m so proud of this compilation because it reflects the dream-like, magical spaces inside of my own mind. It took a little over a year to complete this debut album, and it was worth every minute.”
A Thousand Dreams is not just an album. It is a transportative, completely immersive experience that brings listeners into another world and reminds us all that there is incredible beauty in each and every one of our own journeys and in fighting for and accomplishing our dreams. Lyra Star is looking forward to continuing to share her songs with the world.
A Thousand Dreams is scheduled for release on March 2nd, 2018.
