According to Jan Hall of Folk Roots Radio, “Too tough for folk and too blues-influenced for country, LYNNE HANSON’s brand of porch music with a little red dirt can turn on a dime from a sunshine, blue sky ballad to a full-on thunderstorm of gritty Americana swamp from one song to the next.” Her hard-living music has garnered her the nickname “Canada’s Queen of Americana.” And while her deep, bluesy croon has drawn comparisons to Lucinda Williams and Gillian Welch, it’s the poetry of her lyrics that really sets her apart.
Hanson is known for her high-energy, roots guitar-driven live performances, whether playing solo or with her band the Good Intentions. She has an uncanny way of connecting with her audience with an authenticity that is as entertaining as it is disarming. The prolific songwriter has released eight studio albums along with two books of poetry over her 16-year solo career. She’s toured extensively across North America, Europe and the UK, and appeared at leading international festivals including Take Root (Netherlands), Glasgow Americana (Scotland), Maverick Festival (UK), Kerrville Folk Festival (US), and Winnipeg Folk Festival (Canada). She has also toured as support for Grammy-nominated artists like Gretchen Peters, Steve Forbert, and Albert Lee.
Lynne Hanson released her ninth album "Ice Cream In November" in April 2022 and it has garnered high praise. Country Music People notes, "The lyrics on this album are some of Hanson's very best, and her vocals are strong and confident ... allied to a superb production ... possibly Lynne Hanson's best work, and Amplify Music Magazine writes, " "A glorious mash-up of Americana, folk, and the occasional indie production and song structure and sounds, made even better by Hanson’s trademark lyrical depth... her best work to date... it’s a strong contender for album of the year.”
