How Lyrah uses Sound to grow her community

Lyrah is an LA based artist who quit her job to pursue music full time. Sound helped her in her journey as one of her creative outlets - providing a new way to release music and connect with fans.

Her genesis drop was "Hold Me," a 25 edition limited drop with a price of .1 ETH. Since that drop in February 2022, she's released 7 other tracks on her page, as well as appearing on 10 songs.

She recently went viral with "I Just Need" - a song she wrote with Daniel Allan. To celebrate its success, she also uploaded the "stripped" version as an open edition that has now ended. The song is still available on secondary.

Her latest track, "Coming Back," was dropped in collaboration with Coop Records and released at the same time as all other DSPs.

Being on Sound helped her grow her community. Here’s what she had to say about her experience on Sound:

"i get to have a deeper connection with my listeners bc of sound. my collector group chat has become one of my favorite places to share music and be inspired"

So far, Lyrah has generated $52,772 in volume through over 2K collectors. You can mint a Free Edition of "Coming Back" today, or collect a Limited Edition on secondary.

We'd love for you to add Sound as a platform you consistently add to all of your release plans.

In addition to monetizing his fanbase, he's also build a community around his music. Each track has its own unique perks - some with free music and merch included. Here's what he had to say about his experience on Sound so far:

"Sound has provided a seamless way to connect w holders, deliver freedom drops (on our own terms), via a multichain experience (ETH, Optimism, Base) even traditional pay methods for easier onboarding of new users. As both an artist & curator I’m excited for what more SoundXYZ has in store & for welcoming our contributions as creatives🔥"
