Marie Grady, affectionately known in the entertainment world as LyriQ, is an author, songwriter/vocalist, and spoken word performer. With about 10 years performing experience under her belt, LyriQ is still a babe in the industry, yet she strives daily to reinvent herself and to take her craft to the next level.
To LyriQ’s acclaim are two self-published books of poetry to include, “My Piece Be With You” and “Eye of Thee…Behold Her”, and a romance novel entitled, "Tomorrow Promises..."
Also a skilled vocalist and songwriter, LyriQ has fashioned a number musical/poetic favorites to include collaborations with such artists as the phenomenal Eryk Moore, Bro Poet of Da Wonda Twinz Dub TP Productions, B.L.I.S.S. of 1224 Entertainment, and the infamous Daryl Hayott of Konfuscious Klan. These and more heartfelt creations are being compiled to create LyriQ’s first album recently released entitled, “Sole to Soul”.
Currently, LyriQ travels with a group of poets called New Danger, whose primary purpose is to provide inspiration to our youth through spoken word performances at the Department of Juvenile Justice group homes, schools and colleges, as well as a number of community developed events. A member of the Black Poetry Café, the Black Author’s Network, and co-host of the Lyrical Disciples Internet radio show, and owner of the Lyrical Innovations Design company, LyriQ is definitely out there doing her thing in artistic realm.
A connoisseur of eclectic verbal stylings, LyriQ remains humbled by the concept of being a vessel through which vibes of existence flow. Her mission in life…to make a positive difference in the world we lovingly refer to as home.
A lyrical disciple tried and true, LyriQ will live and die by the pen.
