Born: 1965    Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Megan Lynch hails from South Pasadena, CA. She's a two decade veteran of the San Francisco Bay Area music scene, who can go from singing a Kurt Weill art song one moment to singing ‘Rawhide’ in Swedish the next. She uses a full palette of thrums, yelps, croons, yodels, growls and ululations in order to paint the picture called for by the song. She is equally at home singing her original compositions, Tin Pan Alley, Broadway standards, rock, country, blues, light opera, and various world musics.

”Lynch is a talented vocalist who uses portamenti and trills to conjure the jazz age. The acoustic accompaniment, including lazy fiddle solos, chipper ukulele and haunting turns on the saw give these songs a chance to unfold, and separated from the frenzy of a cartoon they unfold and flower” -

“Lynch has a lovely, impressively flexible voice, and the style and intonation are right on target.” - East Bay Express
