Feeling a bit camera shy


Lyn Besse McGinnis is a blue sky prairie girl from Saskatoon, SK. Originally a closet singer/songwriter, Lyn finally took her music out of the bathroom (best acoustics in the house) to the rest of the world with her single song CD The cardinal in the window (2007) to raise money for cancer research; followed by her debut album All Over the Map (2009); and most recently Next Time Around (2013).

Her songs/co-writes have been recorded by Saskatchewan notables such as Kim Fontaine, David j Taylor & Glenn Sutter. Lyn first showcased at the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards in 2009; won an international lyric writing contest through SongLink in 2012; and co-facilitated a song writing workshop through Sound Advice at the 2013 Canadian Juno’s in Regina, SK. She has played for audiences from 2 to 2000. A songwriter, storyteller & entertainer.

“Two nephews, one granddaughter, a poem written by my great grandmother, a song for my cousin & my Mama’s pineapple’s all about family!” Lyn’s 2nd full length album Next Time Around showcases the eclectic & versatile works of a songwriter - from kitchen party sing-along’s to soulful ballads.

Lyn begins her Western Canada NEXT TIME AROUND TOUR with dates in Saskatoon (Oct 4 & 11) and Regina (Oct 27). Look for Lyn in her favourite venues – house concerts, coffee houses, restaurants & galleries. Lyn is also pitching her songs to TV & film; other artists; & developing commercial partnerships. And, of course, writing more songs!
