Blonde Vinyl Memorial
Windy Lyre
Windy Lyre was the wife of Michael Knott at the time that her one Blonde Vinyl album was recorded. After 17 years she finally released her follow-up album. However, since then there has been no news of any more new music. Michael helped co-write most of the songs on both albums. Her music is alternative pop, along the lines of 10,000 Manics or Sixpence None the Richer.

In 2020, the Lost Archives division of Lost in Ohio re-released both Windy Lyre albums on BandCamp.
