Singer, songwriter and visual artist with a penchant for speaking through song and turn of phrase, where freedom is found through voice that’s “big, bold and beautiful”.

This Malaysian born spent her childhood in a small town in the state of Malacca where her music and art were the mainstay of her everyday life.

Her debut EP ‘This is Lyia’ which garnered 6 nominations from Voice Independent Music Awards (VIMA) in May of 2016 saw her win the award for BEST OVERALL FEMALE ACT.

The debut offering which is described as “raw”, “organic” and “bold” is a reflection of her roots in rock, blues and pop.

She was nominated top 5 for Anugerah Industri Awards (A.I.M) for Best New Artist in 2016

 

Won Gold (Award of Excellence) for Best Rock Ballad from Global Music Awards, California in 2017 and has had her music played on independent music stations from United Kingdom (Radio Wigwam), Canada (The Rocker Chick Show -Progcore radio), California (Woman of Substance Radio) and a few selected stations in Europe.

In August of 2017, Lyia Meta won the award for Best Female Artist from Radio Wigwam (UK).

A visual artist, she spent her early childhood admiring her father’s paint brush fly across huge expanses of canvas. Each stroke left her in awe and wonder at the magic he wove. As a singer and songwriter with a penchant for speaking through song and turn of phrase, her freedom is found through voice that’s “big, bold and beautiful”.

 

 

Born in Malacca, West Malaysia to a Malaccan Portuguese father and a Sinhalese-Chinese mother, she doodled, sketched and painted from as far back as she could remember. After school she pursued distance studies in Interior Design, got married, had a kid and fell in love with the stage. Making music her life, she sang in various parts of the peninsula but always kept her art close to her heart. Fast forward and she is still singing but her art has become more and more a channel for which she can express herself. She paints what she feels, how she sees life and when she needs to. Her relationship with her art is as fiery as the artist herself. She loves every moment spent in front of the canvas and the peace it brings when it nears completion.

 

“I am a self confessed romantic. I paint on influences and emotions that hold sway over me. It is a journey within a journey that opens strange doors. Often the path leads me to places I would have never dreamt of seeing or discovering.” says Lyia

“Lyia is a true Artist in every sense of the word. She not only has a beautiful voice which resonates through her music, but she is also a very passionate Artist that paints on Canvas, and other forms work media. I am excited to feature this amazing lady in the magazine because she brings it all to the table and I know she is very proud to have won awards for her music and will definitely get my vote next time she is nominated” ~Randy Lockhart – Editor In Chief
