Album Notes
LYRE is conscious pop/rock. Serving up an inspirational set of original work, this guitar-driven Seattle duo has a simple m.o.: Music, done well, can entertain, enlighten, and even heal the human soul. This credo is aptly displayed in bandleader Dave Hoskins’ songs which feature haunting melodies, deft guitar work and sweeping universal themes.

The team’s sound pays homage to a host of guitar bands ranging from Dire Straits to U2 and Coldplay while front-man Dave Hoskins’ vocals conjure David Byrne and Lou Reed. Harmony singer and guitarist Matt Quarterman keeps the rhythm guitar bouncy and interesting while his tenor voice adds refreshing air to the vocals. The lyrics are straight up “Pink Floyd on Prosac” taking an optimistic approach to existential themes.

LYRE’s concept came to Hoskins a few years back during a time of soul searching. “I was really into reading the psalms of David in the Bible and I started thinking if I could channel a fraction of the energy that made his work so potent and timeless I’d be on to something big,” Dave recalls. “The name refers to the lyre, a gift from the Greek gods, and King David’s use of the harp to heal in the Bible. I’m really passionate about helping others discover their best life, so to me the name LYRE represents what this band stands for.”
