“Charles Lyonhart is a truly inspiring artist. His melodies both haunt and energize; his eloquent lyrics — intense, ironic, sharp-arrow true — reflect rare depths of human experience as well as a resilient and ultimately trimphant spirit.”
— Myra Friedman, Author "Buried Alive"
Authorized Janis Joplin Biography
“Lyonhart sings of life and relationships, injustice and irony, desperation and triumph, striving and betrayal, folly and achievement...having a stash of unreleased Lyonhart tunes is like having a private treasure.”
— Irv Yarg, The Woodstock Times
We are sad to report that Charles passed away in the summer of 2021. I am his website developer and will post more news as I receive it.
