LYTHION: WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE
In 1999, singer, lyricist, and multi-media perfomance artist, Ilyana Kadushin, was invited by her friend, Julio Gomez (drummer) to attend a recording session at Blue Ribbon/ Flohovia Studio in NYC. It was there she was introduced to James Harrell, a multi-instrumentalist, who had been doing some work with Gomez and his band “HEVY FLOE”.
After a couple of hours, Kadushin and Harrell wrote the song “CHAMPAGNE”, which appears on their debut album, “...From the Beginning”. An instant bond was formed and the two continued on to write more music.
After meeting Ilyana, James replied, “I have finally met a vocalist and lyricist who paired up nicely with the music I was writing.”
Within a year and a half after their meeting, the two had created a body of work, they began performing around NYC venues, as well as doing sound design and composition for theater and television. In 2007, they officially created Lythion Music, their production company based in Brooklyn.
