Neo folk/soul artist Kyle Lionhart from Byron Bay has just released his stunning new single 'Beautiful Life' via Ivy League Records, a soulful and gentle reminder to everyone that this is indeed a beautiful life.
"I wrote & produced this song with two of my closest friends (Billy Otto & Paul Ruske) whilst the world shut down around us. I’d just got news from my agent that all my shows nationally and internationally were either going to be cancelled or postponed as the world braced itself for this pandemic. When I got into the studio I was pretty rattled, so I confided in the boys. Like good friends do, they let me lean on them with all my anxieties but gave me insightful and beautiful perspectives, that’s where the song concept was born . We wanted to capture that feeling, the elation of friends, community & strangers lifting each other up when times get tough, looking out for one another and no matter what our screens tell us, it’s actually all around us. Sometimes we just need a little a reminder that this is a 'Beautiful Life'".

Laid back, cozy, summer time realness. Amongst all the songs about breakups and songs that lead to repetitive TikTok dances, Lionhart's uplifting track 'Beautiful Life' is a nice break from the mould.
The track takes you on an emotional journey throughout, representing growth, passion and a lust for life. The instrumental intro to the track immediately draws you in, followed by Lionhart's mellow vocals guiding you along. On surface level, the track is an easy listen, but it's beautifully written and well produced, and by the second listen, I guarantee you'll be singing along as well.
Confiding in your loved ones, friends and strangers and still being able to find beauty in life even through a global pandemic holds incredible strength and resilience, the song is truly a glass half full kind of song and opens the door into Lionhart's musical candor.
'Beautiful Life' is now available on all good streaming sites.
