Too tough for folk and too blues influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON's brand of "porch music with a little red dirt" can turn on a dime, from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next. The Canadian songwriter is known for her high-energy, roots guitar driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions.
Lynne is a two-time Canadian Folk Music Award winner (2018 English Songwriter, Ensemble of the Year with The LYNNeS), a two-time Indie Acoustic Project Alt-Country album of the year winner (River of Sand 2014, Uneven Ground 2017), a past winner of the Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award, and a two-time finalist (2019, 2009) in the prestigious Kerrville New Folk competition in Texas.
Lynne has toured Canada, the US, Europe and the UK. She's toured the UK in support of Grammy nominated songwriters (Gretchen Peters, Steve Forbert), as well opening for guitar legend Albert Lee in the UK and Canada.
Lynne released her seventh studio album "Just Words," produced by Jim Bryson (The Weakerthans, Kathleen Edwards) in February 2020
