Atlanta-born, New York-based 21-year-old pop, topline songwriter and model, Lyric
Christian, has never lacked the ability to be open and honest about her personal life in her
writing. She first realized she had a knack for Top 40 songwriting while a student at New York
University— Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, when she garnered attention from
Warner/Chappell and was invited participate in their Atlantic Records writing camp. Since then,
Lyric is slowly but surely becoming known in the New York songwriting and music scene as the
black, female topline writer that makes reckless love and heartbreak sound relatable.
As a child, Lyric was classically trained in piano and voice, all the while discovering and
honing in on her songwriting talent. At the age of 18, she left Atlanta for New York to attend
NYU. Mixing her songwriting influences (Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha, and Pricilla Renea) and
her singing influences (Toni Braxton, Anita Baker, Nina Simone) with her strong R&B
background, Lyric hit the ground running as soon as she touched down in Manhattan. She has, to
date, performed two sold-out headlining shows in Atlanta at the critically acclaimed Variety
Playhouse and Seven Stages, and in New York, as well as half a dozen New York showcases at
The Bitter End, DROM NYC, Lincoln Center, Joe’s Pub, and, most recently, The Delancey.
Lyric believes that music is a common language that brings everyone together
transcending race, religion and class—it is the one thing that everyone understands and connects
with in some way.
