We had the good fortune of connecting with Lyric and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Lyric, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
For me you’re not really living if you don’t take risk. There’s a quote (that many say belongs to Thomas Jefferson but has never been proven) If you want something you’ve never had you have to do something you’ve never done. Life is about taking risk. Sometimes you fail, yes, but the upside is that sometimes you win. Every successful person has had many failures. No one living is undefeated in the game of life. We’ve all fallen short. A lot of people are just afraid too. I am not.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
(VIDEO PRODUCTION) Underground Railroad Films

I took a few years off but am not getting back into the swing of things. I just re-launched my Video Production Company “Underground Railroad Films” in Houston, TX for Music Artist, Content Creators, Retailers, Real Estate Videos, Etc. We do a bit of everything. If I had to choose, I would say I like doing Music videos the most because it allows myself, along with the artist to create a whole vibe/vision for the viewers to tap into and my imagination is a book of wonders. Especially if I like the music the artist is doing. I am very selective about the artist I work with. Local or Mainstream. I give all artist the same respect and courtesy. As far as it being easy of course not. It’s longer hours than a normal 9-5 but the rewards are greater and a lot more satisfying. I have learned many lessons along the way. I call them growing pains. I think in anything you go through there is going to be growing pains, school, work, starting a business, buying a house. Anything.

Underground Railroad Films (Video Production) Bring the mental canvas and lets paint that picture! We bring what’s in your head to life!

I have been writing, singing, and playing guitar for over 20 years. What sets me apart from others is the ability to be myself. I don’t go with the trends. I am comfortable in my own skin. It was a lot of leg work and grinding in the time when artist still pressed up cd’s and walked around handing them out for promo. No it wasn’t and hasn’t been easy at all. I still have a long way to go but I feel like I am close. When I took the time off to focus on my son it set me back a bit but I feel like good music is timeless and with the way the game is set up now you can do a lot of stuff online.
As far as overcoming the challenges I kind of just rolled with the punches and took them as they came. Some many unexpected things have happened along the way. There’s a lot of stuff that goes on behind the scenes. The main lesson I’ve learned along the way is to trust myself, and to just have faith in my abilities. Do me. People are gonna feel about you how they feel about you. As long as your comfortable in your own skin don’t worry about the spectators.
Musicially – All I really want the world to do is lend an honest ear. Take the time to get to know “Lyric”. I want to share my story.
