High Gravity


Join us in High Gravity at the Sierra Nevada Taproom in Mills River on Saturday, December 22nd from 6pm to 8:30pm for a free show with Lyric.

“Forget being signed. Paper fades. Legends don’t. I was born one.” This is what this band lives by. They started out as street musicians, filling downtown Asheville streets corners while touching many hearts . “The streets is where we love to be. We get so much positive feedback that it pushes us to work harder. This is where we started and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” said Leeda Jones(Lyric). With a sound and style that is so unique, they’re sure to please any crowd. Playing covers such as “Fast Car and Give me One Reason,” by Tracy Chapman, to their compelling version of Tear the Roof Off/ We Want the Funk,” by George Clinton, it would be hard not to get in the groove with them. Not to mention their well known catchy originals such as “Blue Skies,” and “So High,” which are loved by their many fans.
Lyric has played street festivals such as the Goombay festival, Bele Chere festival, Fall for Greenville Festival, Sourwood Festival and the Black Mountain arts festival. LYRIC have also played with Grammy award winning Count M’Butu from Derrick Trucks band, and opened for Grammy wine “Lizz Wright.” Not long ago did the band finish their album entitled, “Guitar Feet.” this album takes you n a walk through the promise of a better day. Through all hardships and struggle, this album has been known to lift people’s spirits!!
