Wall Street Journal:
Lynn is a Nashville based singer-songwriter who is getting her biggest break yet in "True Detective". She has spent the last three years carving out an independent career and releasing several records, including recent album "The Avenues". - Wall Street Journal - Speakeasy by John Jurgensen.
Online musical sleuths were able to identify the voice behind the track, called “The Only Thing Worth Fighting For,” as singer-songwriter Lera Lynn. But even hardcore devotees of the show were probably surprised to see Lynn appear on camera in the season premiere as the hollow-eyed bar singer who performs for Ray (Colin Farrell) and Frank (Vince Vaughn). - Entertainment Weekly - by Kevin Sullivan
Lynn scored a big break recently when T Bone Burnett asked her to help compose and record the theme song for Season 2 of True Detective, which premiered last night on HBO. - American SongwriterRolling Stone's Top 40 Country Albums of 2014:
33. Lera Lynn: The Avenues "It takes a truly able voice to drop a lead single with barely any words in the chorus, but Lera Lynn — with her dreamlike wordplay, quirky metaphors and fantastically sultry tone — can do just that... And what a voice it is."
American Songwriter Top 50 Albums of 2014:
14. Lera Lynn: The Avenues "... her sultry alto is swathed in moony steel guitar and the ever-so-gentle swinging and sighing of a countrified jazz club combo. What she's done is spin solitary confessions into an immersive, sensual experience, which is no small feat."
