Lynne Hanson

Genre: Blues, folk-rock, Songwriter

LYNNE HANSON and The Good Intentions (CANADA) are known for their hard-living style of music, mixing gritty ballads with driving roots-tinged guitar.  Lynne Hanson’s deep bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude, and she’s drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams, with a touch of Gillian Welch thrown in. In her brand new release Uneven Ground (April 2017), produced by Winnipeg’s Scott Nolan, she explores the realm of giving sound advice through songwriting and fighting back against the devil within us. With a liberal amount of Texas grit and a polished Nashville sensibility, it would be easy to assume the Canadian songwriter came from the southern USA. The songs are brimming over with imagery and cleverly penned lyrics and fall into the next generation of roots and blues music while still respecting traditions.

Lynne Hanson has toured the US, Europe and the UK, either solo or with her band The Good Intentions. She’s showcased in Austin, TX and Memphis, TN, toured in support of Grammy nominated artist Gretchen Peters and Steve Forbert, and opened for Grammy-award winning guitar legend Albert Lee.  She received a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination in 2009 and won the prestigious Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award in 2010.

“Somewhere in the heartlands, in a town called ‘Americana USA,’ nestles a particular variety of singer-songwriter.  Someone who views a melodic sensibility through the bottom of a whiskey glass. Canadian songstress Lynne Hanson could run for mayor of that town.”  – Trevor Raggatt – R2 Magazine – 5 stars 

“She’s made the only roots rock record of 2014 to hold a candle to Rosanne Cash’s “The River and the Thread.” – Michael Barclay – The Cambridge Times
