Reviews:

“Lynn is the kind of folk singer I try to model myself after; that is to say, she sings of our happinesses and our sufferings with moral purpose, simplicity and courage. Perhaps her essential quality is her aim to attest to the truth of these dark times while at the same time refusing the easy lure of mean cleverness, trend, or worse--hopeless cynicism.” - Singer-Songwriter Jon Brooks

"Like all poetry the simple words plumb real depths of the human condition"
Mark Anderson, "Faithful Folk" NY

"Lynn's music gets to the essence of what life is all about"
Charles Adler, Global Television

"...a performer unafraid to reach into the darker parts of her heart for buried treasure." Gregg Quill, Toronto Star

"...a brightly ringing soundbyte in an uncertain world"
Ron Cunningham, New York
