David's Lyre is an alternative/Big Beat/pop project started by 20-year-old Paul Dixon. Originally hailing from London and currently based in Manchester, the mainly self-produced sound of David’s Lyre mixes dance infused, often grime-like beats with simple but brilliant melodies, and Dixon's own outstanding voice. His combination of incredible vocals, infectious hooks and insightful, philosophical lyrics has earned him high praise as a much-needed fresh-sounding male artist.
David’s Lyre started gathering serious attention from fans and industry alike at the start of the year through a series of YouTube covers. These included tracks by the likes of Ellie Goulding, and Florence & The Machine. He has also provided his unique take on other artist’s releases, including an official remix for Marina & The Diamonds’ latest single ‘Oh No!’, and is currently working on more.
Tear Them Down, his first single release, was recorded at Major Toms Studio in Hoxton with help from Amir Amor, whose previous work includes Plan B, Yuck, and Marina & The Diamonds. The track was released in September 2010.
