Lynne Taylor has been an important musical voice in New England for nearly 30 years. Her music has evolved as she has, and is always pushing conventions and boundaries in the realm of social and personal awareness. Her lyrics range from dark and moody to hopeful and uplifting. She is different from any of her contemporaries – there is really no comparison to be made, either musically or lyrically. The daughter of a folk musician and a poet, Lynne grew up in Kent, Ohio during the sixties and seventies, and absorbed the social consciousness of that time. She has always felt that music was her calling. She began writing her own songs at the age of fourteen, and has been performing professionally ever since in a wide variety of genres ranging from bluegrass to punk rock and everything in between. Currently, Lynne’s music is characterized by poignant, brutally honest songwriting combined with powerful vocals and unique piano accompaniment. A staple on the music scene in her adopted hometown of Newburyport, MA, she has been performing professionally across the northeastern US since 1985. In addition to being a popular solo artist, Lynne can also be found having a blast in her alt-folk duo Banda de Goma, playing bass guitar in her punk band, Halo and the Harlots and playing upright electric bass in roots/alt/country-rock band, Liz Frame and the Kickers.
A finalist in the 2016 Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest, Lynne has played such venues as The Firehouse Center for the Arts, Tupelo Music Hall, One Longfellow Square, The Bluebird Cafe, The Blue Plate Special, The Purple Fiddle, Isis Music Hall and numerous Festivals including Falcon Ridge, The Granite State Music Festival and Delfest. Her CD, “When Lightning Strikes” charted at #38 on the folk DJ charts in August 2014 and she has shared the stage with such artists as Odetta, Don White, Cosy Sheridon, Amy Black, Dawes, The Mike and Ruthy Band, Paul Richell and Annie Raines, and Good Old War.
One thing is certain; Lynne Taylor has a sound and spirit that is instantly recognizable and all her own!
