Canadian Teen and CIMA Member Signs Global Label Deal
Mascot Label Group is thrilled to announce that the Canadian award winning and multi-genre artist Lyric Dubee has signed with their label Provogue. Proficient and at ease playing rock, pop, blues, classical, and jazz, Lyric’s deep appreciation and experimentation with all the genres led him to personalize his own style of music known as revolution rock. Provogue will release his upcoming album in 2017, more details about this release will follow later this year.
“In our never ending search for new talent we now bring you Canadian future star Lyric Dubee. From a very young age it was obvious there is something special about him, not just another great guitar player but also an impressive songwriter," says Mascot Label Group CEO Ed van Zijl. "I predict that in a few years the whole world will know who he is!”
Lyric Dubee's most recent album Combat Of Love (September, 2015) was recorded in LA with Grammy Award winning producer Warren Huart (Aerosmith, The Fray, James Blunt), which debuted at #7 on the Digital Radio Tracker (DRT) and moved up into the USA National Airplay Top 200 from #187 to #182.
The single "Linger" entered the DRT USA Top 80 Independent Artists Charts at #21; and the following single, “Combat of Love”, debuted at #11 on the US Top 20.FM Count Down in Hollywood, California. Lyric’s music can be heard in regular rotation on various online and traditional radio stations and found on iTunes, Amazon, CDBaby, Soundcloud, Reverbnation, songza and many other sites.
Since 2013, Lyric has performed live in over 250 national and international shows and music festivals, where he has opened for or shared the stage with performers such as Walk Off The Earth, Honeymoon Suite, David Usher, Rik Emmett (Triumph), Jim Cuddy (Blue Rodeo), Lee Aaron and Carole Pope (Rough Trade). His international shows include a very successful tour of Japan and China last fall. Lyric has plans to visit these countries again next year.
From August 2 onwards, he will be joining Kaya Stewart (daughter of guitarist, songwriter, record producer and Eurythmics front man Dave Stewart) to open for the legendary band The Go-Go’s during their farewell tour. "Lyric Dubee is a natural born star, he plays guitar like his life depended on it and sings his own songs with the sincerity needed to cut through a lot of today's manufactured music," says Stewart. Lyric will also accompany Kaya during her three headline dates, including a daytime Album Launch Party at Webster Hall on August 12.
