Is it gothic tango or is it gypsy torch folk? Atmospheric, original, miminalist & enveloping, Aqualyra's darkly romantic, goth-tinged folk melodies, and hypnotic, ethereal vocals, have won the praise of fellow musicians, wrapping the listener in a web of haunting & poetic gossamer whimsy. A beguiling blend of goth, world, doom, folk noir and dreampop!

In 2012, 'Lyra completed backing vocals for "Have A Beautiful Life" alternative singer-songwriter Hannu Lepisto's debut solo EP , which she also co-produced. Released in December of 2013 "Have A Beautiful Life" was very well-received on ITunes (Finland), being on their New & Noteworthy recommendation list for over a month. Hannu and 'Lyra are co-writing and in pre-production for his upcoming album "Burn Bridges Burn"; they are also in pre-production for her debut release "Drowning Green".
