My name is Maggy Luyten, I'm a Belgian Singer/Songwriter from Belgium. Since 2001 I've been performing in various Bands/Studio projects (Ayreon, Beautiful Sin, D.I.D., Epysode, Flaming Row, Lyra, ex-Nightmare, Over Us Eden, Virus IV...) & Touring projects (Ayreon Universe, Beyond the Bridge, Maiden United...).
In 2018, I had the opportunity to open for Kip Winger's acoustic show with "Maggy & Friends". This gig marked the beginning of a new musical chapter with the excellent guitarist Christophe Godin. Akoustik Thrill, our duet & tribute to Hard 'n Heavy initiated the birth of my new band THE PRIZE.
Besides my singing career I'm an active Vocal & Artistic Coach and founder of MYRIAD VOICE.

I was asked by Uli Kusch, with whom I already collaborated in the past, to be the vocalist on his solo project. We recorded the vocals in Belgium and then I flew to Norway to finish the work at his studio, together with guitarist Jørn Viggo Lofstad (Pagan's Mind, Jorn).
