Dear fans of The LYNNeS, 

We hope you and your families are managing through these times we find ourselves in.  The Pause has also given us time to reflect, and after three fantastic years we’ve decided to shift our focus back on our individual songwriting careers.  It’s been a HELL of a ride.  We never could have imagined when we dreamed up this little side project that it would grow into what it did.  We HAD hoped to go out with a bang, but Covid has made that pretty much impossible, so instead we are expressing our incredible gratitude for the support you have shown The LYNNeS. 

It all started with our Kickstarter crowdfunders.  Your generosity enabled us to record the album we wanted to record.  And we also want to acknowledge the support of the City of Ottawa and Ontario Arts Council.  We are extremely fortunate to have funding organizations in this country.  We also want to thank every venue, festival, and promoter that invited us to perform on their stage.  It takes an incredible amount of hard work and dedication to present live music, and we wouldn’t have had a chance to share our songs without your belief in us.  And we also want to thank CBC Radio and every college and community radio station that shared “Heartbreak Song For The Radio” with your audiences.    And to every musician who lent their talents to our project, in the studio and on stage, we are grateful for every note that made our songs sound that much bigger.    And to every single audience member who purchased our music and came to listen to us play.  We have so much gratitude for each and every one of you. 

For now, you can still purchase The LYNNeS vinyl and CDs off our website.  This will be available until we run out.   And feel free to follow both Lynn(e)s on their individual websites, social media accounts, and to sign up for their mailing lists. 

Take care of yourselves, and see you when gathering together in person is a thing again. 

xoxo 

Lynne and Lynn

The LYNNeS are Juno award winning songwriter Lynn Miles and award-winning songwriter Lynne Hanson. The two are multi-instrumentalists (piano, acoustic, electric guitar, mandolin), fusing tight vocal harmonies with hauntingly gritty lyrics. And humour.  The two witty songwriters play off each other live, and have been known to leave the audience in stitches with their between-song-banter.
