Caroline Lynn

”Lynn is scholarly in a completely relaxed way and often powerfully expressive” John Clare, Metropolitan Magazine, Sydney Morning Herald 03

With a voice described as 'vibrant and beautiful' (SMH), Caroline Lynn's background in jazz and improvised musics, classical voice, Indian vocal techniques, folk and medieval music colour her interpretaion of both traditional and contemporary material. Her extensive performance career has spanned the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Shanghai.

Caroline was born and raised on the UK/London jazz and festival scene of the early 90's, immersed in the buzz of a multicultural city and its music. She studied jazz at the Guildhall but was always drawn to the experimental free scene and multicultural music. She worked closely with anglo-french pianist Tristan Harris who also walked the line between jazz and free, guitarist Lazar der Gregorian, a capella folk group Incantata and Paul Malsom in Trium which was the vehicle for their original compositions and explorations into more global soundscapes.
