Tipped singer-songwriter Lyra (second from right), whose dark electronic pop has drawn comparisons to Kate Bush and Lykke Li, has signed a publishing deal with Imagem Music UK.
Over the last year, the rising Irish-born talent has written with Braque (Rag n Bone Man, Bastille), Nico Rebscher (Aurora) and Phil Cook (Birdy).
Other highlights have included syncs in MTV’s Teen Wolf and E! Entertainment’s The Royals, two sold out shows in London and appearances at The Great Escape, Music Cork and Electric Picnic.
Ed Poston, senior A&R at Imagem Music UK, said: ‘We are delighted to be working with Lyra.
‘She is an incredible songwriter who creates powerful and engaging songs that move people. Partnering this great music with her incredible voice and stagecraft make Lyra very exciting. We are looking forward to a bright future with her.’
