Leeda ‘Lyric’ Jones will be performing at the Orange Peel in Asheville on Sunday, April 14 at 4:00PM, kicking off the ASPIRE Experience Keynote with Chad Pregracke.
Lyric honed her skills as a writer, singer and performer busking on the streets of downtown Asheville. At first hesitant to play for strangers, she quickly realized her original lyrics and soulful style helped her forge connections with those who needed it the most.
Jones is a third-generation musician: her grandfather, the slide-guitarist nicknamed “Guitar Shorty,” toured with B.B. King, and her father jams on anything from keytar, to drums, to the bass guitar he plays when he accompanies his daughter. Jones is the lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the group LYRIC. Her newest focus is on her solo R&B work and releasing the single for her forthcoming album.
