From her hometown in Denmark, to her new town, Seattle, Jessica Lynne’s exuberant brand of country music won’t be contained.
First off, there’s her voice. If an angel were to fall and land herself smack-dab in the middle of the American dream, you might get a voice like this—a combination of earth and ether, delicacy and might, moonshine, mason jars, and cotton candy. From the first syllable, her sound captivates.
But Lynne’s voice is only the start; backing its appeal is a lifetime apprenticeship to the craft of song. With titles like “Not My Cowboy”, “Wheels”, and “Abbey Road T-Shirt” Lynne’s tunes showcase both her down-home sensibility and her smarts with naturalness and apparent ease.
Within a year of her arrival, Lynne has planted herself center stage in Seattle’s music scene. Using the popular crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, Lynne funded her first recording by over 200%. With local audiences comparing her to such luminaries as Loretta Lynn, Bobbie Gentry, Tanya Tucker, and even the Charlie Daniels Band, this kind of success is understandable. Her highly anticipated debut EP, entitled Spiritual Cowgirl is now available for purchase. Between her sunny lyrics, strawberry blond curls, and honeyed voice, Lynne’s output already evidences an implicit and consistent color scheme.
