“An uncommon ability to interpret the roots of American sound by combining sensual blues with delicious country-folk numbers”

Lonestar Time

“Somewhere in the heartlands, in a town called ‘Americana USA,’ nestles a particular variety of singer songwriter. Someone who views a melodic sensibility through the bottom of a whiskey glass. Canadian songstress Lynne Hanson could run for mayor of that town.”

Trevor Raggatt, R2 Magazine – 5 stars

Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, Lynne Hanson’s brand of “porch music with a little red dirt” can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. She’s known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances.
Lynne is known for her hard-living style of music, mixing gritty ballads with driving roots-tinged guitar. Her deep bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude, and she’s drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams, with a touch of Gillian Welch thrown in.

Lynne has toured the US, Europe and the UK, showcased in Austin, TX and Memphis, TN, toured in support of Grammy nominated artist Gretchen Peters and Steve Forbert, and opened for Grammy-award winning guitar legend Albert Lee.

She received a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination in 2009 and won the prestigious Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award in 2010.
