Daydreams & Lullabies
Smooth, graceful, uncomplicated and stirring are just a few terms used to describe singer/songwriter Diana Lynn's music. Her gentle soul sound and airy voice recall the likes of Roberta Flack and Nina Simone. Born in Philadelphia, to a non-denominational minister & his wife, many an afternoon was spent singing and dancing on top of the old church piano while her father worked, rebuilding the structure. Growing up in a family that was highly conscious of and deeply committed to helping build community, put compassion in Diana's heart and on her mind from a very young age. Music is Diana's vessel of transformation. Ms. Lynn's earliest musical influences came from the church and from hearing such luminaries as Mahalia Jackson and Sam Cooke. This is where Diana first experienced the soulful stirrings of gospel music. The voices in the choir were healing, uplifting, comforting and inspirational. Having spent over 10 years traveling bi-coastally performing Reggae, African-pop and classic R & B, Diana developed a passion for world percussion and often incorporates those contagious rhythms in her songs. Having performed a variety of musical styles, Diana is now defining her own voice. Whether hard-hitting and raw, angelically soft or bubbling with love of life, Diana's positive lyrics and hypnotic grooves are to be experienced and shared and definitely not to be missed. 'Daydreams & Lullabies', her newly released debut CD, is an 'Eclectic Soul' collection of songs honoring family ties and lullabies that stir the heart, warm the spirit and bring magic to all who lend an ear.
