“Lynne Hanson is continuing to make a huge impression on the Americana music scene.” Maverick Magazine (UK). Her latest recording “Just Words” could just be the one to take her to the next level. Her hard living music has garnered her the nickname “Canada’s Queen of Americana.” While her deep, bluesy croon has drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, it’s the poetry of her lyrics that really sets her apart. Hanson is known for her high energy, roots guitar driven live performances, her sense of humour and spontaneity as a storyteller. “[Lynne Hanson] seems headed for that revered territory inhabited by seasoned songwriters such as Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Mary Gauthier or Lucinda Williams.” Canada’s Folk, Roots & World Music Magazine “Penguin Eggs.”
