In Studio Today: EJ von LYRIK

EJ von LYRIK has been writing and performing her own material since she started working on music as a career in 1997. Having a distinct interest in music production, she started producing her own instrumentals in 2001.

Her music is an eclectic mix of funk, rock, dancehall, hip hop and roots reggae. She is a strong advocate for human upliftment and inspiration through the medium of music and therefore her music carries positive messages in her lyrics.

EJ is currently based in Joburg and working on her third album. She explains that the album discusses the current socio-political issues faced by the community.

When asked if there is any advice she would like share with aspiring artists, she says

"Knowledge is Power!"

Firstly, she advises artists to learn all they can about the music industry in order to avoid exploitation, and secondly...

"Be Yourself!"
