V9 ATREYU – [BBY GOYARD]

I owe a lot of different artists so much for shaping my musical tastes, and even though the styles that these artists have brought to life throughout the years differ quite a lot, each and every one of them has made an impact on me in one way or another. I used to listen strictly to the more lyrical, conscious style of hip-hop, which I still like, but considering how diverse my sonic palate has grown to be, I don’t think that would have been possible without BBY GOYARD. The man whose alias is Lil Shannon has always stretched the possibilities of music in general, never conforming to a singular style, genre, or sound, but rather pushing his own boundaries which in turn has pushed the boundaries of the industry as a whole. Whether people want to give him credit or not, I think that subgenres like glitchcore, hyperpop, and other forward-thinking styles would not be nearly as popular as they currently are, and even with so many unique emcees coming out of the woodwork, it feels as if none of them hold a candle to GOYARD. For some reason, I haven’t been made aware of his releases in the …

Trackhawk – [Candypaint]

I know I have mentioned this in the past, but the underground music scene is the segment of this industry that really influenced me heavily and crafted my taste in music. Some may look at this as a flaw, but I personally see it as a massive advantage because I now have a completely different outlook on music, even if it is a mainstream success. I honestly aim to give everyone who shaped my taste credit, but there are just way too many people to name, and I do my best to show these emcees my appreciation whenever I get the chance. Some names that come to mind include the late, great 6 Dogs, BBY GOYARD, Lil Xelly, 909Memphis, Larry League, and plenty others, but that is just based on looking at old SoundCloud likes and taking a stroll down memory lane to reminisce on what first brought me into an entirely new world of sonic styles. The list is much more extensive and all-encompassing than just the aforementioned emcees, though, and one person who I would be remised to leave unmentioned is Candypaint, someone who I have been listening to way back when they had a Lil at the …

ASTRAL PROJECTIONS – [BBY GOYARD]

Few people in the entire music industry have impacted me quite as BBY GOYARD has, and I am honestly the person and music fanatic I am because of him. He was one of the first underground artists that my brother put me onto after constantly hounding me about how insanely talented and unique he was, so probably close to a half-decade ago, I finally tapped in, and my world was flipped upside down. GOYARD was making music that sounded like it came from outer space and a mystical, fairytale land at the same time, and even though this isn’t even close to doing Lil Shannon’s artistry justice, it’s just so difficult to explain what you’re hearing, but once you take time to listen, you know just how much of a trendsetter he was born to be. To put it as simple as possible, it seemed like every new release he put out sounded like something you’d never even imagine you’d hear in a billion years, and when he would drop something new a week later, it was completely different sonically but equally as inventive and out-of-the-box. Thanks to this legend, my mind was opened to the fact that music doesn’t …

Interxeller – [Lil Xelly]

If you asked me a few years ago if I’d get to call some of the people I’ve met throughout the music industry my friends, I would say you’re crazy. About a half-decade ago, there was a handful of underground icons whom I listened to so often, others might’ve thought it was my job, but I was just so encapsulated by how different they were when comparing them to the majority of the mainstream artists that were receiving all the attention that I simply couldn’t go what seemed like even an hour without listening to a song or two. Some of these artists included names like Tommy Ice, Kevin Kazi, 909Memphis, BBY GOYARD, and so many others that I can’t name otherwise this sentence would go on for eternity. Ever since, I have had the pleasure of not only watching these individuals grow as musicians, but I also get to call the majority of them homies, and that’s something I’ll forever be grateful for. Out of all of these names, Lil Xelly is someone I not only consider a friend, but someone I truly and firmly believe has the potential to go extremely far in his career, and I just …

Guardian Ghosts – [BBY GOYARD] & [David Shawty]

Hyperpop might be a newer concept in my world, but I didn’t realize until recently that I’ve actually been listening to it for years, and that’s thanks to the wonderful sonic contributions that both BBY GOYARD and David Shawty have provided for fans for quite some time now. In the same breath, it seems like the new idea of hyperpop is something that sounds much different than the music these two hitmakers are creating, and it makes me believe that they’re seriously in a lane of their own, and the sounds they’re bringing to life are nothing even remotely similar to the aforementioned subgenre. Despite their manipulated vocals, energetic instrumentals, and vibrant personalities, these two hitmakers are making music unlike anyone else in the industry, and ever since they started working together however long ago, I believe they’ve changed the landscape of music as we know it, whether you know who they are or not. I can’t get enough of these two underground stars, so when I found out that they teamed up for a collaborative EP entitled Guardian Ghosts, I couldn’t wait to talk about it after thoroughly listening. This project is a quick hit of the inventive style …

Serpintina – [BBY GOYARD]

I’m beyond excited that this month pretty much officially marks the two-year anniversary of my time writing for Lyrical Lemonade, and over the course of these past couple of years, I’ve had the privilege of writing about some of the greatest music and artists in the industry, no matter how big or small they might be. While I enjoy covering nationally-known acts, I definitely prefer to cover the underground because there is never any shortage of creativity or personality in this scene, and the rest of the world just needs a little extra urge to catch on. One of the artists who I’ve covered copiously throughout my tenure is BBY GOYARD, and I’ve even gotten the chance to speak with him and get to know him on a slightly more personal level to the point where I feel like I can consider him a friend, and that’s not something I take for granted for even a second. Despite the fact that he took a bit of a hiatus from releasing music over the past few months, he has still been grinding away in the studio, and I was beyond excited to find out that he’s back after his break with …

The Secret Lies with Charlotte 2 – [BBY GOYARD]

I know I have probably beat this point into the ground by now, but BBY GOYARD is simply one of the most entertaining artists in the entire music industry, and the runner-ups aren’t even close. With all of the creativity and thought that goes into each and every record he puts out, there is no reason why he shouldn’t be a household name at this point, but the longer he stays under the radar, the more people I get to put on as I continue to introduce more friends and family to the talent that is quickly going to become their favorite artist. While he has been known to drop off a bevy of projects throughout the years with each one being better than the previous, he decided to keep his streak going once again with the release of his highly anticipated project The Secret Lies with Charlotte 2, the follow up to last year’s first edition of the series. I thoroughly and wholeheartedly enjoy every single song on this 15 track, 26-minute-long album, and while I want to write a novel on each and every record, I’m going to highlight a few of my favorites for time’s sake. Opening …

SHAPESHIFTER – [BBY GOYARD]

It has been a little while since I’ve dove deep into the SoundCloud music scene, but there are a few names that I was introduced to through the online platform that I’ll never stop cheering for, the biggest name being BBY GOYARD. Just the other day, he decided to team up with producer rubbishrubbish to create a hit entitled “SHAPESHIFTER”, and if you’re not necessarily familiar with GOYARD’s many styles of music, buckle up because you’re in for a treat with this one. Beginning with the beat, there is a dreamy, high pitched synth of some sort that is accentuated by crisp, lighthearted percussion as well as some deep, pungent drums that don’t seem to begin right off the bat, but they enter the picture in a very stealthy, out of left field-like manner. As he raps, he utilizes his slightly higher-pitched vocals that are covered in autotune and other effects, yet he still manages to let his true talents shine through as his vocals just seem to be so pure and genuine. A bit later on, a sliding synth or whistle enters the production to provide even more heavenly sounds that level up GOYARD’s already angelic vocals, constantly leveling …

Summoner – [BBY GOYARD]

There are very few artists in the underground that have even close to the amount of respect that I have for BBY GOYARD. He is simply in a world of his own, and if you’re not creative, open-minded, or ready to hear some of the best and most unique music in the entire industry, then you’re going to breeze right past him without even realizing it. If you are any of the previously mentioned things, though, you just opened your world up to some of the most unbelievable songs that have ever been made, and you have Lil Shannon to thank. When you tune in to one of his projects, it’s almost like he’s a group of artists within one being because the dynamic sounds he can create and very different vocals or stylistic choices he brings to life always bring something new to the table and I’m always curious which persona is going to come out in each new song he drops. Most recently, he decided to drop off an incredible new record entitled “Summoner” which was produced by Taylor Morgan and 4evr. These two hitmakers joined forces and brought a few intriguing sounds to life including dreamy, ambient …

GERM – [David Shawty] ft. [Bby Goyard]

Although the subgenre name Hyper Pop is a relatively new term to me, I’ve been listening to artists who create this kind of music for quite some time now. Obviously, if you’ve paid any attention to my articles over the last year, you should already be aware that Bby Goyard is one of the best talents out, in my opinion, and he has not only introduced me to an entirely new world of music, but he’s also put me onto many other artists who are as unique as he is. David Shawty is one of those artists, and although he’s been growing quite a sizeable following over the past few years as well, I somehow was unfamiliar with him until just a few months ago. I’m so beyond glad that I’m not missing out on David’s music anymore because it’s truly as hectic as it is individualistic. His vocals have so many unfamiliar filters and effects over it that you might think it’s a computer-automated voice when in all reality, it’s just one of the most inventive artists in the industry who is never afraid to push the limits and break through barriers. Seeing these two talents finally come together …
