BIO

Lyanne Low is a singer-songwriter and pianist from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. She is a Foundation in Music graduate from the International College of Music, Kuala Lumpur, and is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Music, majoring in Songwriting and minoring in Stage Management, at the Berklee College of Music and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, Boston, U.S.A.

 

​Lyanne's songwriting style is a complex blend of RnB, Jazz, Rock and Rap, as well as Musical Theater. She places strong emphasis on her lyricism, and loves to interweave messages that she feels strongly about into rhyme and rhythm. Some of Lyanne's influences and favourite artists include The Reign of Kindo, Lianne La Havas, Tom Misch, and Ella Fitzgerald. She has studied with some of the industry's greatest: including author of "Writing Better Lyrics", Pat Pattison and composer of Car Talk: The Musical!!!, Michael Wartofsky. 

Lyanne is a highly capable Stage Manager, having studied under former Broadway stage manager Heather Stern, and is currently stage managing two productions at the Berklee College of Music. The roles have challenged her to exhibit assertiveness and initiative, as well as develop healthy communication skills with the cast and production teams she works with. Her responsibilities vary, with administrative tasks from organizing weekly rehearsal schedules to big picture production calendars, recruiting production team members and creating the necessary paperwork; as well as more artistic decisions such as analyzing scripts from a production's perspective, assisting with costume/prop design choices and calling cues during the show. She is able to channel her creativity in a very different way, in learning the rhythm and language of theater. 

She is also a fully dedicated supervisor of the Berklee Core Music Tutoring department.
