Traveler's Code of Conduct
Jackie Lynn is a fictional persona of American singer/songwriter Haley Fohr, better known for her experimental indie folk project Circuit des Yeux.
Differing from that moniker's more introspective, spiritual work, the more playful, fantasy-driven releases Jackie Lynn (2016) and Jacqueline (2020) fuse country, disco, and synth pop.
According to Lynn's back story, she was born in Franklin, Tennessee, in 1990 and moved to Chicago just before her 20th birthday. She met a man referred to as Tom Strong, and they began a multi-million-dollar cocaine business. In 2016, Thrill Jockey released a self-titled Jackie Lynn album with songs relating to the story. Featuring contributions from members of Bitchin' Bajas and Cave, the album departs from Circuit des Yeux's typical work, with minimalist arrangements incorporating acoustic guitars, synthesizers, and drum machines, as well as more straightforward songwriting. The story continued with 2020's Drag City-issued Jacqueline, which added disco beats and string arrangements. ~ Paul Simpson, Rovi
