I was quite delighted to see the shy and introverted Lorynn walk into the club. My mind instantly tripped back to a Thursday night open mic at Java Jabbers (now known as The Back Booth) about two years ago when I met the plus-size red-head with an amazing voice and a knack for penning poignant and emotion-filled songs. She had been sitting in the back of the little coffee house, clutching her guitar (sans case) and looking at the small stage with a mixture of longing and fright. "Are you signed up?" I asked, by way of encouragement.

She shook her head, giving me a cursory glance. The memory begins to fray at that point - but clear as a new bell I can recall her performance that night as she took the whole place on a passionate and emotional trip. Afterwards, I walked up to her and said point blank: "You need to play out more often so people can hear you." Flash back to the present as I move to her table where she sits with a friend. "You probably don't remember me, but I'm glad to see you're still making music," I say. It takes a moment, but recollection lights a fire in her eyes. Then she proceeds to take the stage and lights a few more fires. This 20-year old with the schizophrenic voice ends her set with Kris Kristofferson's immortal "Me And Bobby McGee", singing it sweet, then roaring it like a Mississippi wild-woman - and the audience licks up every loving drop of her.

Bio

Lorynn The Redhead, originally from Orlando, FL, calls herself the angst-ridden folk singer - and rightfully so. Her songs are a mixture of heartache and relationship angst, but she's been known to surprise her audiences with a few love ballads here and there. She's been writing and performing since age 13, taking the stage as a one woman band at festivals, singer-songwriter showcases and local venues. She most recently played at Fair Park's 4th of July Booms & Blooms and a Breast Cancer Benefit for Baylor Hospital. She's also played local gigs at The Bone, Dunn Bros Coffee Shop, and It's a Grind, among other venues in the DFW area. In Florida she played at House of Blues, Borders, Lost and Found and Nsync's Challenge for the Children in Miami as well as local coffee shops and arts festivals.
