Audio: LIRA Debuts With "Rise Again" + US Tour Dates


We are very proud to announce the upcoming North American debut of LIRA via her upcoming US Tour dates, July 24-29 & the release of the LIRA - EP (July 26th). These are but the first volley. A 14 song album, Feel Good - will be released on January 31, 2012. The title track will be the first single at radio. A superstar in her native South Africa, where her four (4) albums & one (1) DVD release have all sold platinum (or better) - it's very exciting to be a part of her team as she begins what will no doubt be a very successful career here too.
