ARTIST: Irv Lyons Jr. (Onondaga)
TRACK: “Get Down Tonight”
2017 NAMA Nominee
At age 8 while living on the Onondaga Nation Irv was handed a
guitar. He was a lefty and his mom said, "If you're going to learn
to play it is going to have to be on this." Playing flipped around
and upside down has proven to be a metaphor for his life.
Irv Lyons Jr.,s sultry vocals and finessed guitar playing brings to the band a distinctive sound rooted in Latin-influenced jazz, as well as country and blues. Irv has opened up for Dickie Betts, Grammy Winner Joanne Shenandoah and NAMMY winner Jana.
This Oneida Nation Native is a major contributor of original material for his other band The Fabulous Ripcords including straight-ahead blues, instrumentals, Latin, and roots rockers. With this group, he's graced the stage with such talents as Santana, Steve Miller, Blues Traveler, Ry Cooder, Rick Derringer, Phish, John Lee Hooker, Edgar Winter, Leon Russell, Kim Simmonds, Terrance Simien, Gene Taylor, Bill Kirchen, Dickie Betts, and Chip. Irv won a SAMMY with The Fabulous Ripcords for best Americana CD in 2010.
