Davy Lyons

Folk // Wexford, Wexford // He/His

Davy Lyons is an Irish songwriter, musician, poet, and actor. Family gatherings in his childhood, where music was always vital, are the root of his creative endeavours. His first dream was to become a professional footballer. Having completed Masters degree in law at University College Dublin, Lyons abandoned the gavel for the guitar and began a spiritual journey across Europe that brought him to live and make wine in a Tuscan castle and stay for four months in the mythic Parisian bookshop, Shakespeare & Co.

In 2016, he moved to Barcelona where he began playing on the street. His live shows developed a reputation as intense, binding, and unique experiences for the audience, an intimate journey where words and melodies come together, where silences are allowed to reverberate. Sound poems written with the fountain pen of Lyons’ soul with brushstrokes of folk, jazz, and gypsy added by his band.

In 2019 he released his first album, Evidence, produced by Arthur Jeffes of Penguin Cafe. The Human Factor, produced by compatriot David Duffy is his second album and was released in Feb 2023 with Dutch label King Forward Records. In September 2024 he will release his third album, a live one recorded in Underpool Studios in Barcelona in front of an audience. It will showcase the raw live energy of Lyons and his jazz band of skilled and handsome caballeros.
