LiYON began his career as a full-time songwriter and producer in 2010, making music for films, ads and other artists. After years behind the scenes in Toronto and Los Angeles, and winning a Gemini award along the way, he returned to his hometown of Montreal. That’s when he started making music as LiYON, as a way to release what had been building up in his heart and soul.
Combining an electronic pop sound with meaningful experience, new single “Back It Up” showcases his signature ’90s vibe and a driving bass. “Back It Up” is about how frail dating and love can be in modern times; wanting to get close to someone but being weary at the same time.
