Lynz’s music is soulful and speaks directly to the heart. She covers the range of human emotions from playful to vengeful. Lynz has a song that will talk to your heart.

I first saw Lynz 18 months ago playing at The Station Hotel in Nottingham and during her opening song I was straightaway struck by her guitar playing, but it was her fantastic voice that struck me, and it is her voice that is her strength - It's Amazing! Check out her song 'Walking Away' on YouTube. I have since been to see her play several times, once at a Vintage Festival at Newstead Abbey where she did a wicked version of Hound Dog!
