VividLife Radio’s Edie Weinstein welcomes Musical Duo Rick Denzien and Debra Lee, to discuss Musical Parntership, a sonic painting of romantic relationships
Rick Denzien and Debra Lee are a couple who are full-time musicians, songwriters and recording artists. Together they form a collaborative songwriting duo, Lyra Project, and have a new CD they call simply LP-1, with songs that create a sonic painting of romantic relationship at various stages.
LyRA Project (LP) is an American Alt-Pop duo based near Philadelphia, PA. The band consists of singer-songwriters Debra Lee (vocals, piano-keyboard) and Rick Denzien (guitar, vocals). Denzien, who produces and engineers LyRA Project’s music, offers up the duo’s unique sound on their first CD elease entitled LP1.LP’s melodies jump out at the listener, and are reminiscent of classic and new-alt rock, but with current production and interpretation. An excellent strength is Debra Lee’s lead vocal. The duo is most noted for impressive vocal harmonies which blend seamlessly, enriching the melodies and songs, making LP’s music interesting and fresh.Instrumental leads are spot-on, tuneful, interesting and well-articulated. There is no overplaying, and nothing is lacking, either, offering a sonically gratifying production. LP’s choruses and anthems can hang with the best jams out there. Song structures offer balance in repetition and surprise, with strong “just right” arrangements and instrumentation that give listeners a better sense of what’s happening melodically and harmonically. Songs connect emotionally with the listener, with socially relevant themes running the gamut of love lost, gained, and found again, and where the sensual meets the spiritual for an overall feel-good vibe.Lyrics bring home a message about rising above adversity, returning to a higher love, and finding love inside oneself, with music that’s empowering as it soothes and stimulates the psyche and senses.The duo’s name LyRA Project is inspired by Greek mythology and biblical references to the “lyre,” an ancient instrument that’s ancestor to both the guitar and piano. Lyra is a constellation in the Vegas star system. The word Project infers a work in progress, always evolving and expanding.The duos’ work also comprises singer-songwriter alt-pop CCM, with a CD in progress entitled “Walking Together.” www.lyraproject.com
