Toronto, Ontario, CAN

Electronic indie pop with a human soul.


Lauren Malyon AKA Lyon is a small town girl who fell in love with the big city.  Lauren began playing violin at the age of 3, piano at the age of 6, and began songwriting at the age of 15. In the summer of 2012, she teamed up with writer/producer, Japeth Maw and created Lyon.

Described as innocence meets disillusionment and disillusionment meets hope, Lyon’s debut EP, Indian Summer, is electronic music with a human soul made by the girl next door who has a secret. It wants to say that sometimes you can’t keep the one you have. Sometimes you can’t play out the movie inside your head. In the world of Lyon, things don’t happen for a reason but they do naturally and beautifully fall into place.

In the spring of 2013, Lyon signed with Canadian indie label, Black Box Recordings and released her first single, “Indian Summer”, shortly after. Indian Summer hit #1 and #3 in Oct 2013 on the M3 Top 20 and CBC Radio 3, respectively. Lyon released her second single “Floating” on Feb 2014 with a video premiere on Noisey and hitting #5 on M3Top20 in Mar 2014. Lyon completed a successful national spring tour with Wake Owl including sold out shows in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, Edmonton, and Victoria. “Lullaby”, Lyon’s third and final single from the Indian Summer EP, was released on Sept 10 via Exclaim.

LYON is currently in the studio working on her first full length album with co-collaborator, Japeth Maw, her band (Dan Saitua, Gary Rugala, Mike Taylor and Michelle Odorico), and producer, Alex Bonenfant. Her lead single, “Catch Me If I Fall”, is set for release in Mid Oct 2014.
