Biography

Lynn Drury is a Mississippi Delta native turned New Orleans songstress and now hangs her hat in Memphis TN thanks to that damned ol' storm, Katrina. She has recorded 4 albums in the past 5 years and shared the stage with Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and Leon Russell. She grew up on old-tyme country, but cannot deny the insatiable urge to rock. She's penned the genre "twang 'n groove, " which seems to fit her sound perfectly. Flanked by some of the most sought after musicians, Lynn's songs range from ethereal country to straight-up rock 'n roll.

She received the "best emerging artist" award by Offbeat Magazine in 2004 and has played the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for 5 years running. She continues to tour the country playing festivals and spreading her unique sound to avid fans.

Lyrics

Blackberry Winter

Written By: Lynn Drury

There's a K&B sign, lights up, says I'm cool, guess you can't argue with that rule
Sequined skirts, white shirts, fingers stretched around an inch of red wine, it's summertime

He lunges toward her
She stretches past

I see dollar bills on lapels, so many dreams left unfulfilled, but you can never tell
From drunken lips, heart slips on the floor but I'm just standing here trying not to trip over it
But he wont give up he's got somebody talkin' for him
and you can't kill the messenger with all of his friends around

It's a blackberry winter
It's somebodys birthday

Button-down, turn around, throw your money down, I know you've had it hard let's have another round
Button-down turn around throw your money down, I know you've had it hard try not to talk so loud

It's a blackberry winter
It's somebodys birthday

I think that you've got bigger fish to fry

Riptide

Written By: Lynn Drury

Let the riptide take me under
sway me back & forth
with the rhythm finally under my feet
with no pressure from above I hear
an ancient melody playing just for me I hear an ancient melody playing just for me

Feel the tuggin' on my heart and it's draggin' me down, but I guess it could be the drinking or the runnin' all over town lookin' for imaginary love, imaginary love

So let the riptide take me under
sway me back & forth
with the rhythm finally under my feet
with no pressure from above I hear an ancient melody playin' just for me, I hear an ancient melody playin' just for me

take the peace that you feel when you're doin' what you know is right
take the space you've created, try to hold it up to the light
see how it shines, watch it disappear
see how it shines, watch it disappear

So let the riptide take me under
sway me back & forth
with the rhythm finally under my feet
with no pressure from above I hear
an ancient melody playin' just for me
