Today I talked to the lovely talented Jessica Lynn she is a rising country singer with a mix of modern country and if you like a little bit of twang in your music she’s you girl. I wouldn’t doubt seeing her on either GAC or CMT sometime soon. Pick up her latest full length cd and give her a listen you wont be disappointed.
How did you get into music?
Jessica: ” Both of my parents are musicians and performers so I always had music around me ever since I was a little girl. They were a big influence and I have been singing for as long as I can remember. When I was about 10 I started taking piano lessons, and then developed an interest in learning other instruments as well and taught myself the guitar and drums.”
Would you say your music sounds like a older time country besides todays country?
Jessica: “My music is definitely a mix between traditional and modern country. I think it’s important to have something for every type of listener in each song!”
Who are your influences?
Jessica: “My biggest influences make for a very eclectic list : Shania Twain, Neil Diamond, Barry Manilow, No Doubt, Richard Marx, and the Beach Boys.”
What is your craziest stage moment?
Jessica: “My most memorable stage moment has to be when we played Headwaters Country Jam in Montana this year opening for Sammy Kershaw. The fans and the crowd at that show were so incredible and it was one of my favorite moments ever at that show to see so many people singing the words to my songs all the way across the country. It was a day I’ll never forget!”
How was playing Taste of Country Festival?
Jessica: “Taste of Country Festival was so much fun. The staff and crew at the event were incredibly nice and organized, and to share the bill with some of country music’s biggest names was really a dream come true. The stage was huge and it was so much fun to perform on one that size. The crowd was truly welcoming and we had absolutely beautiful weather.”
What do you do for a pregame before a show?
Jessica: “Before a show I always drink lots of water, do my vocal warmups, eat pretzels or wheat thins (lol), and try not to talk too much. I usually like to stretch too so I can warm up my body as well as my mind. I also believe that it is really important to take a few minutes alone before I hit the stage to collect myself and my thoughts so I can give the best performance possible!”
What would you like to tell your fans?
Jessica: “Thank you so much for being so supportive of everything that I do. You have made this year an unforgettable one for me and it has meant the world.”
