Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON's brand of "porch music with a little red dirt" can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next.
She's known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions.
Lynne is a two-time Canadian Folk Music Award winner (2018 English Songwriter, Ensemble of the Year with The LYNNeS), a two-time Indie Acoustic Project Alt-Country album of the year winner (River of Sand 2014, Uneven Ground 2017), a past winner of the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, and a two-time finalist in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition in Texas.
Lynne has performed in venues and festivals across Canada, parts of the United States, and in Europe, had official showcases in Memphis, TN and Austin TX, has toured in support of Grammy nominated songwriters (Gretchen Peters, Steve Forbert), and opened for guitar legend Albert Lee in the UK and Canada.
Lynne will release her seventh studio album produced by Jim Bryson (Kathleen Edwards, The Weakerthans) in February 2020.
"[Lynne Hanson] seems headed for that revered territory inhabited by seasoned songwriters such as Nancy Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier or Lucinda Williams." - Barry Hammond - Penguin Eggs
