Based out of Columbus, OH, singer-songwriter Mary Lynn is armed with a rock band, her heart, and a force of pop energy. Her debut release on Anyway Records proves 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 noise-inflected art pop before the band decided to move on, leaving Mary Lynn to pursue her own music. Following up from the heartfelt pop diary that was her first solo album, Familiar Things & Places, her upcoming release strikes a louder, braver pose.
Drenched in beautiful melodies and vulnerability, My Animal dives confidently into deep emotional territory while maintaining a unique pop-rock energy that consistently surprises. Her strong melodies soar above the painful experiences that birthed them; all while sticking to listener’s minds like glue. Quite simply, My Animal is full of terrific pop-rock-and-roll hits.
“The album, to me, is truly a force of energy. It’s about movement and growing and feeling alive. It’s full of highs and lows and glimmers of hope. These are songs I wrote with my rock band in mind, but still coming straight from my heart.”
Mary Lynn partnered with mixing engineer Bill Moriarty (Man Man, Dr Dog) to help bring My Animal into the true sonic animal it is. And Mary Lynn says her music is just what she strives to be: “Real; Honest; Human; Myself.
My Animal will be nationally released on September 23rd, 2016 through Anyway Records.
