The LYNNeS – Mother’s Day Matinee Show (May 13)

Beautiful harmonies…….

The LYNNeS are Juno award winning songwriter Lynn Miles and award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson.  These two Canadian heartbreak poets are not new to working together, having toured and written songs off and on over the past 10 years, and with Miles having produced two of Hanson’s albums (River of Sand, 2014 and 7 Deadly Spins, 2015).   Both LYNNeS are multi-instrumentalists (piano, acoustic, electric guitar, mandolin), and fuse tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics.  They recently released their debut album Heartbreak Song for the Radio.

I took your words 
Stumbled strummed and hummed along
Hammered till they spelled out
The world’s saddest broken hearted song
 
– Heartbreak Song For The Radio – The LYNNeS 

The duo adopted an old school approach to recording their album, choosing to record to tape and recording all the bed tracks and many of the vocal and acoustic guitar parts live off the floor.  Each song on the album is a co-write, producing a truly collaborative effort, drawing on the strengths of two Lynn(e), to create a sum greater than two individual parts.

I’m tired of falling for cowboys in the dark 
I’m tired of giving away my heart
Of walking a line that’s always shifting
Being the hero and doing all the heavy lifting
 
– Heavy Lifting – The LYNNeS 

“[the album] has the kind of spacious, rolling thunder restlessness Bob Dylan attained with Daniel Lanois all those years ago. It’s that good.”  5 stars – Jeff Monk | Winnipeg Free Press 

“Individually, both Lynnes are formidable forces in contemporary country, together they just might be unstoppable.” – Mike Davies | folking.com (UK)
