New York singer/songwriter.
Raised in Scottsdale, Arizona - now based in NYC and Nashville. Lynne has been singing for as long as she can remember, and began writing her own songs at the age of 15. She has had songs played on Dawsons Creek (WB), As The World Turns (CBS), Jack and Jill (WB), and Lifetime Television.
Her passion is performing live, which she does regularly with her band. Influences include Steely Dan, Sting, The Police, Chicago, and Fiona Apple.
"How can you live here and not be creative? New York keeps me going. It keeps me alive. It keeps me real. And that's what I want people to feel in my music. It can't be any other way." -- Lynne
Raised in Scottsdale, Arizona, Lynne has fond memories of growing up in the Valley of the Sun, but something about New York City always beckoned her from across the desert. Maybe she sensed that its energy was in tune with the fast pace and high goals she set for herself. Whatever the reason, once Lynne moved to New York, she somehow felt truly at home. And in New York, Lynne’s undeniable vocal and songwriting gifts were able to thrive.
Lynne started playing at clubs around town -- at the legendary Bitter End, the Elbow Room, Arlene's Grocery and the Cutting Room, to name a few -- performing her growing catalog of songs. She played hundreds of gigs, honing her craft.
Eventually, Lynne attended a BMI songwriting workshop. A panel of twenty writers and producers picked one of her songs for a detailed critique. At the workshop, Lynne met Steve Skinner, whose credits included arrangement and production work for Bette Midler, Chaka Khan, and the off-Broadway production of Rent, and Arnie Roman, co-author of songs recorded by Cher, Michelle Wright, the Pointer Sisters, and Celine Dion. Together, Steve, Arnie and Lynne have conceived a number of songs, some of which appear on Lynne’s forthcoming debut CD.
Television also took note of Lynne’s talent – soon her music could be heard on the television shows Jack & Jill (The WB) and As The World Turns (CBS) and on Lifetime Television.
Most recently, Lynne sang and co-wrote the song "Same Cry" on Ruff Ryders/Virgin recording artist Jin's new album, "The Rest Is History.” In addition, Lynne’s song "So Serious" is featured on Ruff Ryders’ Volume Four Compilation CD, "The Redemption.”
Sting sideman and collaborator, Kipper, recently completed work on a music sampler for Bang and Olufsen which included Sting, Paul Carrack (Squeeze, Mike & The Mechanics) and Julia Fordham amongst others. Kipper selected Lynne's song "This is Not About You" for this CD as well, saying in the liner notes, “I was knocked out by her energy and her vocals and the freshness…I believe she has got what it takes. It's great to hear a female artist breaking the mold and rocking out in a pop way!"
In other recent news, Lynne exploded onto RADIO AOL, where she was a featured artist, and her single "So Serious” was placed into heavy rotation.
The first single on Lynne’s forthcoming CD, "I Must Be Crazy," combines Lynne's melodic, impassioned vocals with a gritty energy brought to the table by producer Shane McConnell. Drums on this and other tracks are provided by Sting and Steely Dan drummer, Keith Carlock.
Lynne’s greatest passion is performing her music live, and she continues to do so every chance she gets.
