Add to that a couple of new singles:

*     *     *     *     *     *  

Consider the first one as a (far-removed from a high-pressure sales pitch) invitation to take a "Moment to Dream"...

To help introduce the second of these, America's 16th president had this to say:

“We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.”

Yes, out now as well, the song, Justice Day - inspired by the hearings of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the United States Capitol.

Here's a sampling of initial feedback on social media (all modesty aside):

- Loved listening to you sing this beautiful song The lyrics are so inspiring and makes one believe in a positive way to a path of peace , happiness, prosperity, belief and hope in “Justice. Day. “ You sang it with so much emotion, earnestness , faith , hope and belief... You touched my heart. Your song is so beautiful and inspiring and I just sang it along with you.

California-based educator, vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Michael Lyon has a unique artistic mandate. It’s simple but rare. One of his stated purposes is that if he’s fortunate enough for listeners to spend time with his music, he wants to elevate them rather than bring them down. This doesn’t mean that his work serves up idyllic visions in songs that aren’t rooted in reality but, instead, songs that see the world for what it is and still find beauty in everything...” - Michael Rand, mobangeles.com - 07/14/22
