THe LYONZ are a Canadian music group and art collective associated with the hip-hop and electronic genres. The group formed in 2013 in Montreal, Canada. Their debut album Peace Beyond The Pines was released in 2015, leading them to perform various shows in Canada and landing a spot in Montreal’s 2016 international Jazz Festival. Their musical style features atmospheric dynamics, conveyed through heavily processed synthetic layers, shifting drum patterns, and the blending in of treated instruments often met with melancholic verses. Their music may also contain unconventional arrangements established by high production values, often involving extensive digital editing and mixing.
Although primarily a musical group, THe LYONZ have sometimes worked in other media. They have become known to produce several works of visual art including personalized event flyers, short videos, and merchandise. A notable example is their string of weekly flyers promoting their DJ residencies at Montréal venues.
