"CHRISTINA LYON IS ON TRACK TO PAVING A PERMANENT SPOT FOR HERSELF WITHIN THE RETRO/SOUL COMMUNITY" - Buzz Music

"Unapologetically ambitious and unfalteringly honest, “Soul’s On Fire” channels the spirit of yesteryear into the current moment, a reminder that even in the direst of times, when cynicism and gloom abound, there’s still a virtue in pursuing your dreams with wild abandon."

Christina Lyon is a Los Angeles based singer-songwriter, pianist and recording artist whose honest, unconcealed lyrics and catchy melodies have listeners singing along before realizing the depth of her emotive lyrics. Her passion for music began as a child and blossomed into her youth. By age 15, Christina fronted a Fender Museum Kids Rock Free band in Corona, CA, opening for some of her greatest musical influences including Etta James and Bo Diddley. 

Encouraged to front a band with her older brother, guitarist and actor, Greg Hill, her bond with music deepened and at 19, she and her band Yenn relocated to the indie music mecca of Portland, OR. Four years later, and rebounding from personal events that threw her life and musical aspirations into the cosmos, Christina was back in California licking her wounds. Her medicine? Music. 

After persevering through the fire of her own inner struggles, she poured her heart over her piano. The result is her upcoming debut EP, Eden, a promising songbook that artfully combines upbeat melodies with raw lyrics that articulate the struggle to find purpose and worthwhile chasing dreams. Drawing influence from 60s soul and jazz artists undiverted from sharing their struggles through song, Christina's debut is a lyrical, melodic testimony accentuating ear-worm catchiness with classic, warm acoustics. Recorded live in a vintage studio, Lyon isn't shy to reintroduce the principles of classic songwriting to the digital-era audience.

Eden explores themes of nature, the human experience, female empowerment, internal struggles and hope. The ocean and birth are characters delicately woven throughout the album as allegories of both struggle and solace. No matter the depths Eden explores, there's always a message of hope. A marina provides shelter from an impending storm, passion supersedes hunger, companionship soothes the grey cloud of depression. With Christina and her moving debut, you gain a friend and advocate.

"Eden is my love letter to any and every warrior fighting inner battles. It's a place to go when you need a friend, a sanctuary without judgment or protocol. It is Eden for the dreamers. And something that--if all else fails--you can sing along to." 

Eden will be released on all major streaming platforms as a series of singles. The debut single, Soul's On Fire, released on December 6, 2019.
