'Brenda Lyons made me smile and feel good about myself' is what critics say after a performance. It's been that way since she was seventeen and a show-stopping drummer/vocalist touring the country in an all girl '50's revue band. Cover songs paid the bills, but after the shows, Brenda's need for creative expression quickly filled notebook after notebook with original music. Her lyrics speak of acceptance and celebrate diversity in a society that often cloaks prejudice with phoney smiles. Performances across the country in large festivals and small clubs and churches have gained her a loyal following of fans and her touring schedule fills rapidly without effort. Brenda's new Ithaca CD honors women and was compiled specifically for the Ithaca Women's Music Festival in Ithaca, NY. Look for her inspirational Christian release, Right Here, Right Now soon!
