Some call it country, some call it roots-and-blues, others call it rough-around-the-edges folk. Lynne Hanson calls her musical style by her own name: porch music with a little Texas red dirt.
Itís a sound thatís been receiving rabid applause from enamoured critics and devoted fans in Canada, the US Southwest, Europe and Australia. Blessed with a soulful voice thatís been compared to Gillian Welch, Lucinda Williams and Mary Chapin Carpenter, Hanson is one of the most captivating female singer-songwriters on the Americana scene today.
