About The Event
New Orleans-based singer/songwriter Lynn Drury rocks her audiences with her catchy grooves, sing-along anthems and soulful lyrics. Although she has been compared to Lucinda Williams, Neil Young, and Van Morrison by AllMusic.com, http://www.allmusic.com/artist/lynn-drury-mn0001970521 Lynn epitomizes the hard-to-describe but easily recognized sound of NOLAmericana tm – “music rooted in the groove of the Crescent City”.
Lynn has toured coast-to-coast across the U.S. as well as internationally. Whether she’s solo or with her full band, Lynn Drury pulls her audience in by consistently releasing beloved original music. Her songwriting is at once personal and sweeping; her guitar licks are sweet and gritty.
Her previous album, “Come To My House”, showed her transition from “Lynn Drury, the confessional and biographic observer of [her] own life, to Lynn Drury, the diva of love in all its courage and complexity”, as described by John Swenson in Offbeat Magazine. Her latest album, “The Rise of the Fall”, ((https://store.cdbaby.com/cd/lynndrury3)) takes that further, with her energetic, sexy, and captivating tracks. Rachel Cholst, roots music blogger, ((http://nodepression.com/album-review/lynn-drury-come-my-house)) says, “Drury is the songwriter’s songwriter…she’s just so damn good at capturing universal experiences.”
