Irish Singer-Songwriter Tracy Lyons' Second Album "I Will" Was Released July 25th on Mythic Records Through West 57th Street Entertainment

Artist's Official Website Launched Today At www.tracylyons.com

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 27, 2006 --"When I started working with KC Porter," says singer-songwriter Tracy Lyons in her signature Irish lilt, "he really pushed me, and I went to this place I'd never sung from before." GRAMMY® winning Porter, who produced much of Tracy's new album "I Will," says, "Her sweetness, her gentle spirit, creates a tone that penetrates deep into your soul, like a soft storm of sorts. There's so much emotion, yet with a beautiful and kind delivery."

"I Will" was released on July 25th on West 57th Street Entertainment, recently launched by music industry veterans Mason Munoz and Louis Levin, with offices in New York City and Weston, CT. The ten-song disc -- to be distributed through Alternative Distribution Alliance (ADA) -- leads with the first single "Don't You Know," a Porter-produced track that gets under your skin on first listen, and has been added by AAA stations nationwide. Additional cuts were produced by Canadian Juno Award winner Greg Kavanagh, and the album was mixed by venerable GRAMMY winning engineer Ed Cherney.

Other stand-out tracks include title song "I Will" and "Save Me," the latter dealing with Lyons' focus on environmental health issues. Of that song, Porter says, "Music can change the world in so many ways, and uplift the spirit. Tracy is one of the few voices really speaking out in support of the need to respect the environment, the need for change in that area."

"I Will" follows up "Surrender," released in 2002 on Vapor Records, which prompted Billboard Magazine to write, "With the impressive debut 'Surrender,' singer/tunesmith Tracy Lyons proves that she has a knack for wrapping strong words in a velvet glove." That album's single "Love Hurts" drew national radio attention, and led to opening act appearances with Kenny Loggins, Dave Mason, Shawn Colvin and Los Lonely Boys, among other artists, and to the headliner slot on the "green"-themed summer 2004 tour "SHOW: The Sustainable Energy Roadshow," which played major festivals throughout California.

The official Tracy Lyons website launches today, Thursday, July 27th. Fans will be able to sample new music and view a short documentary about the artist including interviews and live footage.

Following several years honing her skills living and working in Northern California, the now Los Angeles-based Lyons says, "the more naked you are with your emotions, the more you can connect with other people." On her new album "I Will," she does just that.
