Biography

Dwight “Lyriqs” Giles, a native of Linden, new Jersey has embarked on what we note as his sophomore album Life and Other Things. Lyriqs started his interest in music as a dj from the early age of 15. Taking cues from the elements of Hip-Hop and blending them with beats from old records acquired from his father’s collection. As time & skill progressed Lyriqs self taught style of production utilizing cassette tapes and turntables gave him local notoriety.

Lyriqs attributes his musical influences to talented greats; such as, A Tribe Called Quest, The Fugees, the funk of the 70’s era and ranging to his aunt, jazz artist Antionette Montaque and many more. His musical foundation was grounded in the truest sounds of genuine melody that can still be heard in his album today. Lyriqs’ music is reminiscent of early hip hop without losing it’s relevance, thus staying current and fresh.

Today Lyriqs has embarked on operating his independent label “Spoken Music Entertainment.” Under his label he self released his debut album “Welcome To My Creative Mind” in the summer of 2010. That album was followed up by his new album “Life & Other Things” (released in Sep 2011) which many are calling his best work yet.

With hard hitting beats a lyrical content the album stands apart from what is the norm on radio now days. Songs like the up tempo Windows, the title track Life & Other Things, and the stand outs Mercy keep listeners wanting more. The hard work from Lyriqs can easily be heard he produced all but all but one track on the album.
