Lyric Rising began its musical journey in the summer of 2012. In the duo's infancy, Lyric positioned itself as a stripped-down acoustic duo, developing its own sound and spin to classic rock and pop favorites, in addition to writing and recording their own original material, in preparation for eventual CD release.
As Lyric Rising hits its "one year" mark, they have quickly built up an impressive musical repertoire, and have played numerous performances in the Northern New Jersey area since its first live show in February 2013. The band continues to evolve musically and creatively, continuously adding both new and classic songs to their set list, expanding their depth of sound - both acoustic and electric, as well as combining Keith's original musical compositions with Christy's original songwriting, resulting in a unique and catchy feel all their own.
Christy Nilsen fronts this duet with her passionate and her powerful soulful voice, coupled with her vibrant stage presence.
Keith Dunham compliments Christy by adding his part on both the acoustic and electric guitar.
This duet will be updating their bio as they complete the many milestones that lie ahead of them. Lyric Rising will be returning to the studio very soon to continue refining and recording their original material, and updates on CD release, as well as gig schedules will be posted on ReverbNation, Facebook, and www.lyricrising.com as they become available! We thank our friends, family and fans as we embark on this remarkable musical voyage and we can't wait to see you all at our shows!
