Yvonne Lyon is a singer-songwriter, musician and teacher based in Greenock. She is currently studying for a Masters in Songwriting and Performance at the University of the West of Scotland.

Her music combines poignant lyrics with strong, creative melodies, demonstrating a voice that can be both fragile and intense.

In 2009 Yvonne won the Burnsong International Songwriting Competition and sung her winning song All Is Not Lost at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh. She has appeared on BBC 1, BBC Alba and has had two sessions with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2.
