Meet LYVA!

LYVA is a unique brand that represents a musical artist, a band, a production company and a distribution experience. LYVA’s music includes songs that are co-written by Lynda McLaughlin and Valerie Gurka, two friends who teamed up to produce music using digital media as its main distribution channels.

The project includes adult contemporary songs that represent a fusion of pop, rock, alternative, R&B, latin and dance grooves. LYVA is not afraid to show its true colors in a variety of different forms which include traditional musicality using contemporary techniques. Its hooks are powerful, vocals are passionate, lyrics are thoughtful and the grooves are fun. LYVA has a unique approach to distributing its music.

On the one hand it is happy to share the stage with other up-and-coming artists who can compliment a great performance. On the other hand it is ready to dive into technological advances in digital media in order to share music and its brand in a creative way.

LYVA is also dedicated to community networking and outreach, both inside and outside the music industry. This is a truly unique project and movement in modern music.

Holiday Gift To Our Fans –

The Christmas season is truly one of the best times of the year to highlight the spirit of giving. For some of us we give with our music. It’s great to sing at hospitals, nursing homes and facilities for wounded warriors. We should all get involved and give back in any way we can. Here we can give back by giving our songs to listeners. The whole point of making music is so that people can enjoy it, and that makes us so happy.

FREE music downloads: Four songs Available HERE!
