D’Lyfa Reilly is a poet and rapper from Manchester, UK. He first burst onto the UK hip-hop scene in 2011 aged 19, and gained notoriety and features on national radio play with a string of self-released EPs.
In 2015 D’Lyfa took a hiatus from music, taking time out to study, start a family, and build a home. During this period he continued writing poetry and raps, working on his craft and reflecting on the growth and changes in his life.
After finding a new rhythm in life, D’Lyfa contacted friend and former collaborator Aver (Village Live Records) in 2019, looking to finish off old projects and begin work on new material. The two spent 18 months building a cohesive body of work that blended some of the songs they started as early at 2013 with new tracks they had made.
Time and Tide is the 12 strong long player the pair have put together and is available now.
