Not too many female rock singers can stand up to Ann Wilson of Heart. She is, in my opinion, one of the greatest rock singers ever. Now and then, though, the universe gives us a gift, and Lyia Meta is one of those rare gems. Her combination of power, soul, and edge matches Ann Wilson in that ability to both rock hard and move me emotionally.
Today’s track of the day is Slumber by Lyia Meta. This song is captivating both lyrically and musically, and Lyia’s vocal soars straight up my spine to give me chills.
Slumber is off Lyia’s debut EP, ‘This Is Lyia’:
1. Save Me
2. She’s Searching
4. Dimana Dikau
5. For You
I featured the EP on our sister site, Soundwaves Review, back in August. You can find that feature here: LYIA META – ‘This Is Lyia’ – Debut EP By A Rock Goddess
