"Singer/songwriter Whitney Lyman can bring out the lyrical hook in any rough track, with a sound that’s a cross between nostalgia and visionary." -Carol Banks Weber, The Examiner
"With her single, “Laser Beam”, Lyman just may have invented a new musical style: dream pop." -AXS
Vox Mod feat. Whitney Lyman
"Whitney Lyman... provided a slew of riches during her time onstage — gorgeous songs that combined the rhythmic adventure of her band Pollens with shoegazing languidness, an airily beautiful singing voice, and a game group of backing musicians behind her. A few more gigs at center stage, and she should be ready for world conquest." -Tony Kay, The Sun Break
"More genre-flauting meta-music from Seattle's most forward-looking rockstar-shaman. "Mind Matter" is more immediately fun than Vox Mod's usual jams, a bouncy electro-pop nugget featuring lush vocals from Whitney Lyman of Pollens. It'd be all over mainstream FM were there any justice in the world." -Jonathan Zwickel, City Arts Magazine
"All of the songs on the self-titled album [Supersonic Parachute,] are nicely arranged pop songs with R&B leanings that use Lyman’s voice particularly well, but it’s the fourth song, “Love is a Spark” that has me hitting replay over and over again..It has exactly what I look for in a great pop song: effervescent harmonies, a big, smart, catchy-as-hell chorus, a nicely constructed bridge and a sexiness that is both underlying and overt." -Chris Burlingame
"Pacific Northwest critics took notice, as did a growing group of fans.
Transfixed by her voice, which seemed to go on forever, often on just
one note, told a whirlwind of stories through inflection, phrasing and
timbre. Her debut album incorporated as much of the world as she could
muster, from Indonesia’s Gamelan bells and drums to a big band’s worth
of sectionals." -Carol Banks Weber AXS.com (see more)
"Whitney Lyman..writes and performs songs under her own name (she also helped create a fantastic pop album with musician Andrew Boscardin called Supersonic Parachute.)" -Chris Burlingame, Another Rainy Saturday
"Whitney Lyman is a singer/songwriter from the Pacific Northwest. She blends influences from folk, classical, and dream pop---creating an ethereal world with her enchanting voice and lush compositions.
Lyman self-released her debut album, "Wandering, Wondering" in 2012, engineered by Eric Corson (The Long Winters, Perfume Genius) and her debut album as a solo artist features an array of instrumentation from Indonesian Gamelan bells and drums to orchestral woodwinds, horns, and strings to accordion and banjo. Her Fiona-Apple-meets-Debussy piano and rich, haunting vocals are the anchor of the album.
In 2014 Lyman signed with London Tone Music
