At age 11, Cyril Lance’s mom brought home a $17 guitar and a book of Bob Dylan lyrics that sent him off on a journey that he is still on today. His first two discoveries as an adolescent growing up in Honolulu, Hawaii were blues-great Muddy Waters and jazz-great kenny Burrell. both of these icons have remained pivotal inspirations for Lance on his winding exploration of the American music experience for the last 25 years.
In the mid-80’s, Lance move to Boston where he immersed himself in the music scene and played his guitar in bands from bluegrass, folk, celtic, jazz, reggae, blues and art-rock for the next 10 years. While in Boston, Lance studied at the New England Conservatory where he further developed his concepts of improvisation and a deep respect for roots music.
Cyril’s shows are always an event with a host of musicians joining is at every turn.
