Anna Lynch is a native Californian, born and raised in the small wine country town of Sebastopol, California, and now residing in a small town on the outskirts of the Pacific Northwest musical-rich community of Portland, Oregon. Her musical underpinnings were formed by her parents in the California bay area folk scene and honed in the backcountry of Alaska where she earned her first accolades as a band leader and songwriter.
Lynch is an in- demand vocalist, songwriter, and with her unique “right hand strum” on the guitar is finding success across many genres and with fans of all musical tastes. One minute you find yourself with tears in the corner of your eye and the next with a smile on your face. It’s all delivered with a sincerity that is authentic and genuine.
Her self-titled debut album, released in 2013 to critical acclaim, was heralded as “one of my favorite albums”, “something real that you can endlessly fall into love with”, “a compelling honesty to the writing and a clear truth to the delivery of every single line”, “a true recording artist”, and Country Music Television (CMT Edge) profiled her song Railroad Man from the release (available for preview on her website).
Her songs speak to all-audiences because everyone can relate to the stories and the way they are told. Anna has lived a lot in her time and her songs tell of that life. It’s relatable, honest, and above all else it’s real and her fans know it. When she sings, you believe what she has to say. Why? Because every letter of every word of every line has been lived by her inch to feet and yard to mile.
