Born Matthew Paul Davis February 21, 1980 in Kingston Jamaica, Lyrik’s family relocated to the United States early in his life, Waterbury Connecticut to be exact, where he graduated highschool, all the while keeping close to his Jamaican roots and culture.
Apache Cafe in Atlanta Georgia was where Lyrik made the transition from being an audience member, to the one entertaining the audience. Warm receptions received by crowds each time the stage gets touched, fueled his desire to reach continue touching people musically.
Now a permanent resident of the Miami Florida area, Lyrik’s growth as a person and artist can be heard in his music. Miami has warmly received Lyrik’s sound as his appearances at local open mics are regularly met with the proverbial “rewind and pull up” common in Jamaican culture as a sign of lyrical excellence. This is one artist that truly lives up to his name and ready to share his many deep expressions with the world!Show Less
