Imagem signs Lyra

Now that indie music publisher Imagem has got itself both a Concord and a Bicycle (I think I got that right) it can get around town – and the globe – much more quickly and therefore check out all the cool dude new songwriters. So that’s good. Though they could have just read about the joys of Lyra in the CMU Approved columnĀ back in April last year.

So, yes, Imagem has signed a worldwide deal with Irish electro-pop maker Lyra. Having just jumped off his bicycle, Imagem UK Senior A&R Ed Poston chatted thus: “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”.

Hiding the fact that they only really did the deal in the hope of getting a ride on that Concord, Lyra’s manager Victoria Becks of Tileyard Music said of the new arrangement: “We are extremely excited that Lyra has joined the wonderful Imagem family. Lyra is an incredible talent; both as an artist and as a writer and I’ve no doubt that partnering with them can only result in something very special”.

But don’t worry, Lyra knows that all Concords have been grounded since 2003. She even knows you spell it Concorde. She’s really signed with Imagem because “they’re so passionate and proactive and they really understand what I’m setting out to achieve”. Plus they really do have some very fine bicycles.
