Courtney Lynn

Canadian-born Courtney Lynn possesses a voice and style that echoes both her heritage and her modern edge.  She can often be found belting out in-your-face songs with her raspy and innovative vocals while donning her trademark funky fur boots that are reminiscent of her Metis Indian ancestors, a people made up of French-Canadian fur traders and aboriginal Canadians.  Her debut solo album Bad Girl unapologetically mixes old country with new country and exhibits a blend of both soul-soothing and upbeat "hit 'em hard" songs.

Wide-Ranging Influences

With both parents loving different styles of music, Courtney credits her musical influences to a variety of artists, from country outlaws Merle Haggard and Johnny Cashv to female country icons The Judds and Shania Twain, and from blues and jazz queens Etta James and Billie Holiday to rockers Michael Jackson and U2’s Bono.  But it’s rockabilly empress Wanda Jackson who Courtney relates to the most and whose raspy vocals her own have been compared to.  "I've been told my sound is a mix of Wanda Jackson, Tanya Tucker and Joan Jett with a shot of Pistol Annies!  "But I have learned to be true to myself, and if I keep the faith and work hard, then I feel I've already been as successful as my influences," Courtney says with a flame in her eye.

A Walk Across Hot Coals!

Having had the rare opportunity of literally walking across hot coals, Courtney feels like she can accomplish anything.  "That event of walking across coals changed my life.  It was an experience that taught me how to let go of any past negativity and take charge of my ambitions," she says with a quiet confidence.  It's that same gumption and energy that audiences can see and hear in her live performances.
