About
I am Lyric (I prefer this over my real name, since a lot of people have trouble pronouncing it) I'm from a small town in central Texas. I'm sixteen and have been writing songs since I was around ten, that was also around the age I started taking a potential music career seriously. I grew up heavily influenced by music, from rock and country to pop and rap. I spent most of my childhood listening to bands such as Guns n Roses and Metallica and singers like Adele and Sam Smith. So I'd say my range of music is very diverse. There are a few things that can stand in the way of wanting a music career for me, although I've been playing piano practically my whole life, I can't read sheet music (I was home schooled and never took a music class) I am entirely self taught and I play by both muscle memory and by ear. This was never deemed a problem until I realized, writing music also calls for WRITING music. I only ever wrote songs as a hobby until I slowly convinced myself music was something I wanted to do. Please note that I am only starting out as a newbie in song writing, I am very much an amateur and I am open to anyone who can help me and/or listen to my ideas.
