Canada’s finest new experimental hip hop exports THe LYONZ are set to culminate a very exciting & productive year following the release of their debut album ‘Change In Colour’ in Oct 2021. Having emerged as something strikingly different with a performance at Montreal’s International Jazz Festival, Anthony Salvo and Terrell McLeod Richardson who form the group have recently appeared on national TV in Canada, in DJ Mag and most recently were selected to record an elaborate 360 degrees session in the Swiss Montreux mountains in collaboration with the AP brand and Montreux International Jazz Festival.
The album brings together the best of THe LYONZ’ music to date and just oozes with beauty and raw feelings with organic authenticity and natural attitude. Their melting pot of spontaneity and carefully planned moments make them able to reflect all aspects of the human condition letting the listener tap into their world, sometimes straight up, sometimes laced in metaphors, and interpret it in a number of ways. Expect a high energy performance with live musicians.
