"Much like her previous efforts, Lynn’s fourth studio full-length is mounted with heightened tension and emotionally-charged exchanges.

"The record embraces the darker and more provocative side to Lynn's songwriting...""Resistor," and especially its almost punky, upbeat opening tune, "Shape Shifter" – is much different from her nameless alter ego's, often trafficking in similar moods of melancholy and hurt but with an evocative Americana lift, and nowhere near as gloomy or grim. -OnMilwaukee 

 "[Her} 14 song show that reinforces precisely why the young Texas-born Nashville resident is such hot property at present. She has the confidence and stage presence to engage and amuse a very attentive audience throughout the evening."   -Lonesome Highway Dublin Show Review 

"Certainly, it’s [Resistor] rich in atmosphere, Lynn and co-producer Joshua Grange evoking the kind of torchy, spectral noir that informs the best work of Cowboy Junkies or Mazzy Star. But there’s also a less tangible, sinister element at play here, as if everything has been tilted slightly off centre."  -Uncut Magazine 

"She is really making a name for herself as songwriter and performer." -WXPN The Key Philadelphia 

"A steadily pulsing bit of timeless guitar rock, and a lot more colorful and in-your-face than the True Detective songs."   -Weekly Music Roundup NYC

"she is a multi-faceted artist, tapping into dark mystery in her lyrics and up-tempo barn-burners by turn." -Chronicle Live 

“The Texas native’s delivery…is alternately delicate and menacing, vulnerable and moody.”  -Paste Magazine 

"This beat, sometimes subdued and sometimes insistent, is a revelation for anybody who didn't hear 2014's excellent The Avenues, but even those fans may be surprised by how sleek large portions of Resistor are." - All Music 

"The heat is in lyrics about desire, pain, betrayal and revenge....And 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 

"The time around she dismisses that approach, preferring to push boundaries and create challenging often unsettling music that encourages multiple spins to reveal its substantial pleasures. " -American Songwriter 

"So completely unique that I can't' think of a single comparison." - No Depression 

"Lynn has a gift for sensory subtlety, and she uses it to get at emotional truths." - NPR Music First Album Listen 

With Resistor, her third LP that can be somewhat summed up by its first song, “Shape Shifter” and its ode to reinvention both sonically and thematically..." -American Songwriter 

"A musically upbeat rocker that redirects her darkness on the edge of town to the bright charm of the highway strip."​ - NPR 

"On the lead single "Shape Shifter" from her upcoming third LP Resistor, she morphs her sound, steering away from countrified licks straight into clever indie-rock bliss." -Rolling Stone
