"Rachel Lynn is a New York-based vocalist who creates music with style and substance." - The Huffington Post

Coming from an abundantly musical family, Rachel Lynn had her sights set on singing from a young age. The New York City based chanteuse is a classically trained vocalist whose original soulful pop music is entwined with her signature evocative lyrics. Her sound resonates with the passion of a singer-songwriter raised on 90′s pop and Motown masterpieces.

Having studied music at The University of Maryland, College Park, Lynn has performed throughout the Maryland/Virginia/Washington, D.C. region as a solo artist and has also been fortunate enough to perform with ensemble groups at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, Maryland.

Since relocating to NYC, Lynn has performed at numerous venues including Webster Hall, Rockwood Music Hall, and Bowery Electric, and has regionally toured throughout the east coast. She was named one of New Music Seminar’s Top 100 Artists on the Verge for 2014, was selected to officially showcase at CMJ 2014, and was featured in publications, such as The Philadelphia Examiner, AXS, The College Dropouts, You, Me & Charlie and more, following the release of her acoustic EP in August of 2012.

Rachel Lynn’s sophomore EP, To Street & Transfer, was recorded at The Bunker Studio in Brooklyn, NY and dropped in November 2014. The project boasts “a powerful voice, top-notch writing ability and now a full band” (Arena.com). The project has been praised by publications such as The Huffington Post, Pop Matters, and Baeble Music, stating, ""There's nothing apologetic about Rachel Lynn's voice; with booming soul and charismatic charm, she conquers space fervently and without restraint." (Baeble Music). Lynn has since showcased at CMJ 2015 and NACA Mid-Atlantic Showcase 2015, opened for acts such as AJR (Warner Bros.), and played several shows during SXSW 2017.

Rachel Lynn released a single titled “Seeing Red” in November 2015, and is donating all proceeds to the animal rights organization Mercy For Animals. Since its release, the single and lyric video has been mentioned by various publications and internet personalities such as Global Vegans and Confront Magazine.

Rachel Lynn is currently back in the studio working on her next release, set for 2018.

"Rachel Lynn, a powerhouse vocalist out of New York City, bolsters her take on pop with her classical training as a singer, something quite uncommon in the modern pop landscape." - PopMatters
