LYNNE HANSON 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.
Lynne is also one half of “The LYNNeS” a collaboration between herself and Juno-award willing songwriter Lynn Miles. Their release “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” was nominated for 5 Canadian Folk Music Awards, winning English Songwriter of the Year as well as Ensemble of the Year..
"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
