May 9, 2017 – Acclaimed singer songwriter Lera Lynn began 2017 with solo dates close to home in GA, TN, and KY. Now, she prepares for a tour with John Paul White (Civil Wars) starting in Birmingham, AL and travelling through Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, and the Carolinas, to name a few.
This will be Lynn’s first tour with White, however, this is not the first time their music will be heard together. Both contributed original tracks to HBO’s True Detective Season 2 Soundtrack where Lera Lynn also made a cameo appearance as the sultry bar singer and was hailed, the highlight of the season.
“I’ve admired [John Paul’s] work both as a musician and a producer for so long. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to tour with him. It seems like something that should’ve happened a long time ago!” Lynn says referencing her first tour with White.
John Paul White is touring in support of his latest album, Beulah, while Lera Lynn is currently writing for her next studio release.

American Songwriter names Lynn’s latest album Resistor as one of their Top 50 Albums of 2016 – “it’s a rock record at its core, packed with aggression and taunting vamps that are anchored by Lynn’s clever lyricism, daring composition and super-sensual vocals.” – Marissa Moss, American Songwriter
Here’s what else the press are saying about Lera Lynn.
“The heat is in lyrics about desire, pain, betrayal and revenge….the cool is in languorous slow tempos, minor chords, ruthlessly laconic arrangements, guitar lines swathed in reverb and a voice that smolders a long time before it flares up.”
-New York Times
“Lynn has a gift for sensory subtlety, and she uses it to get at emotional truths”
“At once spacey and specific…Baritone guitars, keyboards and looped drums fill the background, while Lynn’s voice — a natural descendent of Hope Sandoval and Margo Timmins’ woozy wails — wafts into the spotlight, singing songs that occupy the outer limits of Americana and indie rock.”
“The Texas native’s delivery…is alternately delicate and menacing, vulnerable and moody.”
“Filling Lynn’s remarkable compositions with exactly enough sound to create an atmosphere for the songs. In some places, they toy with rhythm, in others they tease out the spaces between notes, and in others still, the emphasis is Lynn’s vocal – so completely unique that I can’t think of a single comparison.”
“[Prefers] to push boundaries and create challenging often unsettling music that encourages multiple spins to reveal its substantial pleasures.”
