T-Lyons - born Traion Lyons in the early 2000s - is a product of a generation with instant accessibility. As a rapper from New Orleans, he is inspired by artists from across the spectrum, ranging from Jean Michel Basquit to Lil Pimp, leading him to come out with his own fast, playful flow and a slight edge for the truth. T-Lyons slings his innermost thoughts, speaking about the challenges of his generation, no matter how on edge or authentic. The relatability of his verses lets his fans identify with his shared experiences, knowing that there's no such thing as too much. With an artists’ drive, he is focused on pumping out original music with the goal of reaching as many as possible, and seeing what sticks along the way.
With a father in the entertainment industry and his mother a touring rapper and singer, he grew up on a tour bus and backstage of major concerts from a young age. Beginning in 2012, T-Lyons started pushing out his own music. Now in 2019, with key collaborations in place, T-Lyons has released singles celebrating his 17th birthday including “War” with Grammy-award winner PJ Morton, “Backyard Party” with Kermit Ruffins, and “Twerk Gone Wild” with 5th Ward Weebie. T-Lyons has plans to produce a single per week throughout 2019, recruiting guest artists such as Trombone Shorty, Rodja Fields and Gabi Cavassa. Major shows in 2019 include performing at the Barack Obama Street Dedication in Los Angeles and a premiere launch party for his record at 3 Keys Ace Hotel New Orleans. T-Lyon’s tracks are produced by two-time Grammy-award winner Irvin Mayfield.
