SingerSongwriter Mary Lynn's debut on Anyway Records finds her stepping into the sheen of a full rock band to bring powerful songs on love, growing pains, and relationships. Based out of Columbus, OH, and armed with her piano, voice, and emotions she has the superpower ability to spin a phrase with the catchiest hooks imaginable. Her former band of nearly a decade, This Is My Suitcase, released three records of noiseinflected art pop before the band decided to move on, leaving Mary Lynn to pursue her own music. Following up from the quirky pop diary that was her first solo album, Familiar Things & Places, her upcoming release strikes a louder, braver pose.
Drenched in beautiful melodies and confident vulnerability, "My Animal" dives into the same emotional territory as Aimee Mann and Regina Spektor while maintaining a unique poprock energy that consistently surprises. As she sings about the confusing states of being alive, Mary Lynn makes her songs sound effortless. Her strong melodies soar above the painful experiences that birthed them; all while sticking to listener's minds like glue which means they may find themselves singing the choruses of "Two & Two" or "Funeral" when they wake up in the morning. Quite simply, "My Animal" is full of terrific pop songs.
Mary Lynn partnered with Bill Moriarty (Man Man, Dr Dog) to help bring "My Animal" into the, well, true sonic animal that it is. And Mary Lynn says she wants her music to be just what she strives to be: "Real; Honest; Human; Myself."
