In high school, Lynz began teaching herself recording and music production via YouTube inspired by Owl City. Her drive for learning landed her a full scholarship to the Grammy Foundation's high school music camp. GRAMMY Camp is a 10-day music camp based at the University of Southern California. Lynz attended for audio engineering in 2015. "It was my first chance to finally meet so many others doing what I do, in real life," Lynz says.
Then, in August 2015, Lynz released her first full-length independent album titled Dusk At Dawn. It was entirely written recorded and produced by Lynz at home in her room. She completed a successful Kickstarter campaign for the album as well. Not long after, Lynz won the 2016 Buffalo Music Hall Of Fame songwriting competition for her song "Enough." Winning earned her the opportunity to record the song with many Buffalo Music Hall Of Fame members at the Goo Goo Doll's cathedral-like studio called GCR in downtown Buffalo.
