Lyrics in My Head
Lynette grew up in the high desert of New Mexico and brings to her music the fiery passion of her Mexican-American roots, along with a sense of adventure forged from years living abroad, including three continents before settling in New Zealand. In December 2006, Lynette picked out a guitar in a music store. After a few informal lessons from a friend, and the determination to learn guitar, Lynette began writing music a few months later. 'When I picked up the guitar, I knew I had found the vehicle for all the internalized lyrics and emotions that were swirling around in my head.' The 14-tracks on her debut CD release, 'Lyrics In My Head' are a testament to a long journey of self-discovery. The tracks resonate with the universal pangs of heartbreak, loss, growth, new-found clarity, love and joy. The songs are powerful, yet subtle. Easing their way into your heart and mind through the pureness of the message and the honest vocal delivery. 'My music is personal, but I believe the messages are universal. Each song is heart-driven, by which I mean that I never pick up a guitar with the intention to write a certain way or a certain theme. The songs happen, no force of will. If it\'s not happening, then I know it's not meant to be written.' Lynette teams with Christchurch-based musician/engineer, Andrew Morriss for the album production. Morriss' deft guitar work compliments each song. 'The songs on 'Lyrics In My Head\' tend to have a positivity about them. Even those about heartbreak, pain and loss. I think it's due to the fact that my general outlook on life is positive, and somehow that comes out in the music. I know that all these emotions mean I'm alive, good or bad, and the songs are somehow, maybe on a subconscious level, allowing me, and the listener, to see solutions.'
