Most recently, Lynn had her song "A Little Bit Of You" featured in the popular online Soap Opera "Venice, The Series" (a spin off of Guiding Light) and she was also featured on the cover of the magazine, "The Isthmus". Lynn has co-written songs for the NFL, NASCAR, NHRA & MLB (with Jake Johnson) that you will soon be hearing at select games/races (Banshee Music Publishing).

EARTHBOUND is receiving airplay on folk programs across the nation including the nationally syndicated, Midnight Special and Nevada City’s KVMR. Her career launched in 1996 when the Minneapolis Star Tribune ranked her CD, LAY ME OPEN, a top ten release across all genres, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press proclaimed “You can’t help being amazed at the power of her presence and the sound of her voice. . . you can’t help but listen.”
