Meet country singer Jessica Lynn as she gears up to bring her world tour to the UK this year, alongside the tour she will be releasing her live album and releasing her brand new tv show which you can find out more about in the interview she very kindly did with Music Promotions
How long have you been singing? Have you always wanted to be a country singer?
I have been singing ever since I was a little girl. I came from a musical family so music was always on in my household, especially country music. I loved it so much as a little kid and then when I got older and started writing my own songs, I really felt like there were no stories like the stories of country music, and I wanted to be a part of it. Now my parents actually play in my band! We are family. My mom is my background singer, my dad is my bass player, and my husband is my lead guitarist!
How’s your current tour going?
The tour is going so great! I absolutely love being on the road playing music. There is nothing like getting to travel around the world, meeting incredible people, experiencing amazing other cultures, and doing everything I ever dreamed about doing since I was a little girl. I am having such a great time.
What can we expect when you bring the tour to the UK?
My live show is very high energy. The audience can expect a lot of participation, and a mix of my own songs as well as some cover songs that I have put my own twist on. We absolutely love what we do and I think that it really comes across on stage. We encourage lots of singing along and dancing. 🙂
What was it like to film your concert for spotlight TV?
That concert actually was nationwide in America for the last few years. I was so thrilled when spotlight tv asked to air it. They will also be receiving my brand new television show that comes out nationwide in America this August. For me, the UK is one of my favorite places to play and I was really honored that they wanted to broadcast it for me!
Do you have a new single coming out and a album?
I have a brand new live album that comes out with the new television show this August. It will not be made available to the general public until the show has gone nationwide in America, but at all of our UK tour dates this summer, we actually have advance copies. It is one of my favorite pieces that I have ever done and I’m really proud of how it came out. Every song on the album means a lot to me. We will be following up the live album and TV show with a brand new single that will come out in the fall.
Who inspires you as an artist?
I am inspired by many different artists in many different genres. Growing up in New York, I was exposed to many different styles of music. I love The Beach Boys, Neil Diamond, No Doubt, Shania Twain, Phil Vassar, and also a lot of classic rock like AC/DC.
Who influences you as a songwriter?
Real life is what influences me the most as a songwriter. I am not the type of writer that can just decide to write a song. I need to hear, see, or feel something that really makes me think about life. Maybe it is just someone talking on the phone next to me at the gym while I’m running, for example. The person might say a word or phrase to their friend that sets off this whole chain reaction in me. I usually write very quickly when I’m inspired. Writing is also my best outlet for my feelings when I am sad or happy. I always say that when you read the lyrics to my songs, it is definitely like reading my diary.
Any future collaborations in the pipeline?
I do have some cool things coming! On my new album are a few duets and collaborations, and I have also been working with Devon Allman of The Allman Brothersfamily on some new material!
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
This is a great question but it is also very hard to answer. For me, it has not been one particular moment, but rather the connection that I am able to make with people all around the world just by singing my songs. It is an incredible feeling to have someone tell you how much your music means to them. A feeling I can’t quite describe.
What’s next for you?
I plan to be on the road a lot this upcoming a year supporting the brand new TV show and music. I can’t wait to show everyone what I have been working so hard on!
