Often likened to artists such as Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin, Mia Rose Lynne writes and sings from a place of sincerity and simplicity. Roots music has always been in Lynne's heart. A northern California native, she grew up singing harmonies in the family western swing band and fell asleep in the Winnebago on summer nights to the sounds of campsite jamming at bluegrass festivals.
Lynne went on to pursue a career in musical theatre, touring nationally and internationally. Along the way, she found herself in Nashville, where her love for roots music resurfaced and the songs began to write themselves. Since her recent move, Lynne has had the opportunity to perform professionally in both Nashville's songwriter and theatre scene. She won the 2014 American Songwriting Awards in the folk category, and was recently a finalist in both the Great American Song Contest and Hollywood Songwriting Contest.
”Open Space”, Lynne's debut album, 2014, was recorded and produced in Nashville by Brendan Harkin and features Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Rob Ickes on dobro. Songs range from folk ballads with haunting string arrangements to bluegrass and folk pop grooves. Her 2nd record ”Follow Me Moon”, to be released in 2016, features 11 tastefully stripped down acoustic originals and was produced by Austin Filingo and recorded by Grammy award winning engineer, Tim Roberts.
Paul Liberatore of the Marin Independent Journal describes ”Follow Me Moon” as, “original americana style songs that come at romantic relationships with honesty, wit and none of the tropes and cliches that lesser songwriters so often fall back on. Lynne brings life experience without sounding world weary, sincerity without self importance”.
