The best kept secret in music


Caryn Lin does not simply play the violin, she has electrified & reinvented it… and then continually takes it where no human has ever dared.
In the twelve years I’ve known her, Caryn’s Lin’s music continues to evolve. Just when you think Caryn has done all that’s possible, her next project becomes an increasingly compelling musical tapestry.

Whether accompanied with band or playing solo with her jam man and sound effects, Caryn’s live performances defy description. Caryn is compelling, engaging, and creates a sonic landscape that defies gravity.

While some may claim one cannot easily categorize Caryn, the true music lover believes that her innovative eclecticism is her strongest asset. Rather than follow in other’s footprints, Caryn’s inventive style leaves its own distinctive impression. In this era largely dominated by homogenous musical modalities, wherein the record industry is preoccupied with churning out the next format friendly “flavor of the day,” Caryn’s music has the timeless qualities of the great masters.

Wherever my career has taken me – whether as programming radio stations, producing nationally syndicated radio programs of booking venues & festivals, I have always had the pleasure of presenting Caryn’s music.

In a nutshell, Caryn Lin is to violin is what Bela Fleck is to Banjo, Miles Davis to trumpet, Zappa to guitar, Coltrane to sax… well you get the idea.
