Houston artist, by way of Chicago, Lyric Michelle lays her soul bare on this latest offering from her upcoming project, 'MissDirection'. Equal parts strength & vulnerability, "My Pain" is a smooth, soulful blend of flame thrown lyrics, thought-provoking spoken word, & heartfelt singing courtesy of Donte Newman & Jack Freeman respectively.
Once again, Chris Rockaway's board work provides Lyric with the perfect backdrop over which to exorcise her demons which is exactly why she is a favorite of Yahoo Music who have premiered several of Lyric's works. This go-round however, Revolt jumped at the chance to debut "My Pain" after she performed at their McDonald's-sponsored "Local Love Tour" stop in Houston.
Live performance is truly where Lyric shines though, taking her audience on a visceral journey for which they are seldom prepared & never forget. Thankfully, she routinely gets the chance at major events like A3C, SXSW, & POP Montreal because if you ask her, performing is really all she wants to do.
'MissDirection' will be dropping later this year & features cameos from a wonderful roster of talent including Fat Tony, LeeLonn, & Kam Franklin (of The Suffers)...Stay tuned!!!
