Lera Lynn The Avenues on LP

Critically Acclaimed Sophomore Release Available on Vinyl for the First Time!

Melodic, atmospheric, and intensely introspective, the material on singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Lera Lynn's sophomore album The Avenues (2014) is entirely self-penned and fearlessly personal. Several of the songs, including "Letters," "Coming Down," and "Leave It Up to Me," are reflections on the musician's difficult relationship with her alcoholic father, who died when she was in her early 20s. "The rest of the songs are about love," she says. "There's a lot of love and death happening here. But what else do you write about"?

There's a haunting voice that can conjure country legends or the best of the singer-songwriters. There's an understated presence and raw talent. There's a writer in full command of her craft. "There are definitely aspects of earlier country in there, rockabilly and Western swing, music of the Patsy Cline era," Lynn says. "I take some things from people like Conway Twitty and some of the other old country greats, and that's very different from what country is now. Maybe that's why the ‘country noir' label is applied to my music so frequently. It probably should be ‘real country,' or ‘authentic country music.'"

With the Joshua Grange-produced The Avenues, Lynn created a mature album that resolutely defies pigeonholing. There is respect and nostalgia for the past while still pushing towards the future. "Where does my music fit?" says Lynn, "it's the hardest question to answer. It's something I'm constantly thinking about, and something people ask. I haven't found an answer. I think it's sexy. It's sophisticated."
