"Lynn Miles makes being forlorn sound like a state of grace."
New York Times
Canadian-born songwriter Lynn Miles combines the emotional intensity of Lucinda Williams with the common-touch songcraft of Shawn Colvin and delivers the results in a beautiful melancholy package. In the words of USA Today: "Miles sings of stark, desolate loneliness, and the instruments accompanying her echo in the expanse of the solitude." And consider this testimony from The Ark's own former program direcdtor Dave Siglin: "I presented literally thousands of performers, including many wonderful singer-songwriters whose music I now cherish. Of all of these, I find myself listening to the music of Lynn Miles more than that of any other performer who played the club. Her melodies are stunning, and I think many of her lyrics are absolute poetry capable of standing alone. ... The point of my writing this is that I can easily say Lynn Miles ranks as my favorite singer-songwriter to have ever played The Ark during my tenure over the last forty years. Flat out my favorite." Lynn has been touring lately with a duo called The Lynnes, and it's been a while since we've heard her solo show. Not to be missed!
