So today how about some great roots rockin' from a southern young lady.
Lynn Drury hails from the Mississippi delta, but currently resides in New Orleans.
With a background like that one can't help but exude the rockin' blues.
And Lynn won't disappoint ya, she describes her music as "Mississippi Grit ~ New Orleans Groove". You got that right!
Lynn Drury’s compositions are as rich and full of visual imagery as life itself. Often autobiographical, each song is carefully crafted around its initial inspiration, ranging from love and loss to beauty and butterflies. Her sound combines the twang and grit of her native Mississippi and the funky grooves of her adopted home of New Orleans.
Lynn Drury has performed live on radio and television, and receives frequent local and national radio airplay. Offbeat Magazine dubbed “Spun” the Best New Release of 2003 and presented Drury with an award for Best Emerging Singer/Songwriter in 2004. She was also nominated for Best Roots-Rock Album (“All You need”) at the Big Easy Awards in 2006. .......... more hereCheck out Lynn Drury's music, and you will see why she will be my Artist of the Month for Roctober.
