Unveiling the Sonic Alchemy of Lyons & Co: “Look Like Now”

Few voices resonate as deeply and authentically as that of Bridget Lyons. The frontwoman of Lyons & Co, Lyons stands as a beacon on the LGBTQ Americana scene, her presence a powerful testament to resilience, artistry, and unapologetic authenticity. As the band releases their latest track, “Look Like Now,” ahead of a highly anticipated album drop in late July, the stage is set for Lyons & Co to redefine roots-rock.

Lyons & Co is more than just a band; it’s a collaboration of some of the genre’s most distinguished musicians. With members hailing from renowned groups like Yonder Mountain String Band, Paul Cauthen, Billy Strings, and Lindsay Lou, the collective expertise within Lyons & Co is staggering. The chemistry among these artists is palpable, their combined talent creating a rich tapestry of sound that is both innovative and deeply rooted in tradition.

The new album, co-produced in Tulsa by Andrew Bair—known for his work with Jason Boland & The Stragglers and Isaac Hanson’s new country-rock project, Mother Road Sons—promises to be a sonic journey of unparalleled depth. Bair’s influence ensures a polished yet raw production that captures the essence of Lyons’ distinctive sound.

Bridget Lyons’ story is one of triumph over adversity. Raised in a tumultuous environment plagued by addiction, Lyons has channeled her experiences into music that speaks to the human condition. Her smoky vocals, capable of shifting effortlessly from a growl to a tender croon, tell stories of love and loss, pain and redemption. Lyons’ ability to connect with her audience through her authentic storytelling is unparalleled, making her a formidable presence in the music world.

Lyons’ discography reflects her journey. Her debut album, “Long Kiss Goodnight” (2008), introduced the world to her raw talent. However, the loss of a band member to heroin use marked a turning point, leading to a hiatus until her return with “Living Room Songs” in 2019—a poignant collection of intimate recordings. Her comeback was solidified with the release of her first full-length album, “294,” in 2022, which debuted at SXSW and topped the festival’s Spotify playlist.

The latest single, “Look Like Now,” encapsulates Lyons’ journey and the band’s evolution. It’s a track that defies easy categorization, embodying the spirit of “swamp rock”—a fusion of blues, folk, and Southern rock traditions. The song’s intricate melodies and heartfelt lyrics are a testament to Lyons’ ability to craft music that is both deeply personal and universally relatable.

As Lyons & Co prepares for their album release, the anticipation is palpable. This upcoming project not only promises to showcase the band’s musical prowess but also to cement Bridget Lyons’ place as a trailblazer in the Americana scene. Her philosophy, “what matters most is how you feel when you play together,” underscores the genuine connection that Lyons & Co brings to their music—a connection that resonates with fans old and new.

In “Look Like Now” and the forthcoming album, listeners will find a profound exploration of the human spirit, rendered in melodies that linger long after the last note has faded. Lyons & Co is not just a band to listen to—they are an experience, an emotional journey that invites you to feel, reflect, and ultimately, to celebrate the beauty of resilience through music.
