A performer since childhood, Mississippi-born Lynn Drury relocated to New Orleans in the mid-nineties and performed her unique style of roots rock on most of the stages in the city. Over the past two decades, that meticulously cultivated style—NOLAmericana®—has brought Drury’s original music to stages all over the world. Her music, along with her personality, is reflective of her two hometowns—“Mississippi Grit–New Orleans Groove”—as she calls it.
Drury’s impressive catalogue includes “Crossing Frequencies” (2001), “Blackberry Winter” (2002 with Bad Mayo), “Spun” (2003 with Bad Mayo), “All You Need” (2006), “Dal Vivo (2009), “Sugar on the Floor “ (2011), “Come to My House” (2014), and 2017’s critically acclaimed “Rise of the Fall.” She has earned multiple nominations and awards from New Orleans’ most prominent publications.
Her latest release, “Rise of the Fall” showcases Drury’s “exponential growth as a songwriter” and was hailed as “another breakthrough” by Offbeat’s John Swenson.
