Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?

Beloved music lovers,


Who I am and why I need your support

My name is Carina Lyrique, I am a singer-songwriter, music composer and multi-instrumentalist driven by my passion for music.

Having started music studies at the age of 6, here I am today with more songs and music compositions that can fit in one album, waiting to be recorded. My music is inspired by my deep spiritual connection to nature and to the world around me.

I need your help raising funds so I can publish my first album and organize my first large-scale concert to release it. Being an independent musician who refuses to make commercial music, but who rather sees music as a means to channel emotions, I am in the impossibility of releasing such an album without your aid and support.

Help me communicate with the world the true language of my heart.



What is my project

  • My Debut Album

I have been working since 2015 on the album, composing the music, the songs, writing the lyrics and all the musical arrangements of the tracks. The album will consist of original songs and piano compositions arranged for guitar, piano, cello, violin, flute and percussion. My goal is to bring my very first album to life, and to include several professional talented musicians into the process of recording it. It will consist of 11 original tracks of Arabic, French and English songs, piano compositions and one Armenian traditional song.

The album is a collection of a multitude of experiences, emotions, and realizations. It is the fruit of the last 4 years of my life where I wrote music when I felt joyful, when I felt despair, how I composed when everything and nothing was going right. It tackles on the subjects of universal love, freedom, divinity, and nature all of which I feel are vital to us, to me for sure.


The album is also the product of my struggle with composition, where after 11 years of academic piano studies I felt stuck being unable to compose, I just remained inspired by my idols (Beethoven, Mozart and Chopin) yet unable to be truly like them. At 17, I took the decision to close the piano and never to play again unless it would be one of my own compositions. For about 14 years I didn’t play. And it’s only when I started practicing meditation that things changed. I started hearing music in my head while meditating, and when I stopped and tried to follow the music, it only multiplied.

This album is a proof that when we truly desire something we can achieve it. It may take a lifetime, but worthwhile things never come easy. I gave my all to music, I struggled with it, I abandoned it, and then it brought me back to where I needed to be, in its heart.
