MUSICIANS IN ISOLATION: JESSICA LYNN


Australian Musician editor Greg Phillips catches up with Jessica Lynn, New York-based country crossover singer songwriter and longtime friend of our online magazine to chat about life in lockdown, her new single and more

Rising New York-based country crossover singer songwriter Jessica Lynn has released her latest single ‘Love Me That Way’, now available to download and stream from all digital platforms.

Jessica Lynn has been described as a “rocket force” for her trademark high-energy live performances – which showcase her powerful voice and vibrant stage presence, as well as this multi-faceted singer/songwriter’s multiple instrumental talents, playing piano, guitar, harmonica, and the drums!

She’s an artist who can’t be easily pigeonholed and ‘Love Me That Way’ is sure to continue that genre-crossing appeal.

“‘Love Me That Way’ is one of my favorite songs from my new television concert special on Amazon Prime: Live At Dramatic Hall,” explains Jessica, “I connect so much with it because it is a very good representation of who I am as an artist:  a little country, rock, pop, blues, and soul.  There is so much passion in a relationship often when things are going wrong and not always when they are going right.  I wrote this song about having that same fire ALL of the time.”

‘Love Me That Way’ carries Jessica’s strong lyrics, songwriting and vocals with verve. It follows in the trailblazing wake of 2 strong songs already released this year from her new cycle of work. On release day, ‘Run To’ charted on iTunes in the Top 10 in both Italy and Austria and in the Top 100 in The United Kingdom in Country Music, whilst ‘Now or Never’ has now hit well over 60,000 streams on Spotify, and also been featured on major platforms such as Rock and Review: one of the most esteemed music review shows out of Nashville, Tennessee.

No wonder that American Songwriter acknowledged in May that Jessica Lynn “has drawn comparisons to several other big singers, including Shania Twain. She has toured Europe, where ‘Run To’ has already cracked the charts in several countries, and penned multiple songs with top hit writers in Nashville and Europe.”

Jessica has been livestreaming, charting every week in the top 40 on Pollstar for all internet livestreams. However, despite the great success of her weekly internet concerts, she’s admitted on her social media, while sharing concert memories, that she has been missing the energy and impact of live performance, and is keenly looking forward to live gigs and to touring once more in the near future.

And with good reason, since Jessica Lynn’s live shows are fabled for their incredible energy, vocals, spectacle and showmanship.

Jessica’s rescheduled 80+ date world headline tour – The Lone Rider – will run between May and October, 2021, where she’ll be able to reconnect with her fans.
