"A-Sides With Jon Chattman: Janine and the Mixtape Press Play; Rachel Lynn’s ‘Flame’"

Rachel Lynn is a New York-based vocalist who creates music with style and substance. Her music is sort of pop music on the soul tip. By the way, I don’t think anyone has ever said “soul tip” before nor should they. Anyway, this classically trained vocalist dropped her EP To Street & Transfer last fall, and it shows off not just her voice, but her deeply-felt lyrics.

At Primary Wave’s A-Sides Studio in Lower Manhattan, the talented musician played two songs raw, and sat down for an interview covering everything from her music to losing her mother, a classically trained flutist and music teacher, at an early age. “Ch-ch-check it out,” and I mean that it a very Beastie Boys way since we lost MCA this day three years ago. Anyway, back to Lynn who just crushes it. - Huffington Post


"Rachel Lynn’s “Abide” radiates a gentle ma"

Dropping low in the sky, the sun casts a warm, golden glow upon Rachel Lynn’s soft features as she sings the gently grooving, hymn-inspired “Abide” upon a city rooftop. The beautiful message of her lyrics and the supple grace of her performance are masterfully portrayed in this debut video which captures the reverence of a fading day.

“The chorus of ‘Abide’ is actually a Quaker hymn I sang growing up while attending and working at Quaker camps,” the artist informed. “It’s a song that has always brought me such joy and comfort. At the camps, we’d sing it every night before going to sleep. It was such a beautiful way to acknowledge that the day was done and we could find solace in its completion.”

“Quakerism focuses on the concept of the inner light: a light that exists within each individual,” she continued. “I knew when I decided to write a song that revolved around the hymn, it needed to reflect that belief in the light and my relationship with it.”

“Making this video with my band, Chris Schutlz (drums) and Stoddard Blackall (keys), and the amazingly talented videographer Greg Barnes was an incredible experience,” she reflected. “I’m so lucky to be able to work with such talented people, and being that this was my first music video, I’m so happy we were able to achieve what we did.”

A great deal of the video’s magic resides in the ethereal flow of Rachel’s movements as she performs. The artist recalled the somewhat less than glamorous process of creating the mesmerizing fluidity. “In order to create the slow motion effect for the final product, we shot the video in double time, which meant I was singing along to an incredibly fast track that made me sound like a chipmunk!” she revealed. “The guys had a good laugh at some of my efforts during the shoot.”

With “Abide,” Rachel Lynn has created something special, but did she know just how special this song was when she was writing it?

“Lyrically, the song means so much to me because of its roots in the original hymn, so I knew before I wrote it that this one was going to stay with me forever,” she replied. “However, as far as writing a song and wondering if I’ve made a ‘special’ or worthwhile project, I don’t know if there’s really a way to figure that out. I just try to write music I feel connected to and then I hope that others feel connected to it, too.” - The Philadelphia Examiner


"Rachel Lynn Mashes Up Pop Classics"

There's nothing apologetic about Rachel Lynn's voice; with booming soul and charismatic charm, she conquers space fervently and without restraint. Her voice, though incredible and released with a visceral ease, has taken years of training to get to this point. Starting early in a children's choir, Rachel has sustained her passion for singing through conducting vocal ensembles and extensive private training. Hard work pays off: staunch idolatry of Rachel Lynn has inclined drastically since garnering accolades and buzz in 2014.

On the edge of a musical breakthrough, this singer-songwriter has chosen a unique path. Combining 2010 hit "I Need A Dollar" by Aloe Blacc and Ellie Goulding's latest single, Rachel Lynn uses simplicity as her weapon. With only a guitar adorning her expressive vibrato, her voice cuts through the dense silence and proves to be a force to be reckoned with. The video invites you to join Lynn in a vacant recording studio, beckoning an intimacy between her and the viewer. It's a beautiful rendition and would make both pop artists unequivocally satisfied on the subtle aspects of their American classics. Get her EP To Street & Transfer out now. - Baeble Music


"The influence of New York City on Rachel Lynn and her To Street and Transfer EP"

Rachel Lynn is a wonderful, warm light. She hums with a genuine open and honest good nature. Her latest release is the sizzling and soulful To Street & Transfer EP. In a interview with AXS after her performance in Philadelphia last night, the New York-based artist explained that the title comes from the signs posted in subway stations throughout the city that direct commuters to either a transfer train or to an exit to the street. “I look at it very much as resembling my own situation ... the different paths available and my growth as a writer and my growth as a person while being in New York.”

Rachel revealed that she grew up across the street from a sheep farm in Maryland. When asked if she thought her move to New York City back in 2011 had changed her writing, the classically trained singer responded, “Oh my goodness, yes! Cities mold and shape you. Being from a small town in Maryland, it’s definitely a shift and a change for me... but it’s a change that I’ve welcomed and one that I am grateful for. I don’t see myself leaving New York anytime soon.”

On a single from her self-titled EP, which the artist released a couple of years ago, Rachel revisited a Quaker hymn that she sang as a child. The touching “Abide” was a beautiful acknowledgement of the inner light that exists within each individual. By contrast, Rachel noted that the muse for much of this current EP, which was just released this past November 11, was much more relationship-based. “Dating in New York is not easy! A lot of these songs are just me writing about a**holes!” she laughed. “The lyrics are about betrayal, disloyalty, and other topics that, unfortunately, probably a lot of other people can relate to!”

Rachel Lynn’s infectiously upbeat twinkle affirmed her assertion that she was by no means a man-hater. In fact, she joked, why would she keep dating if she didn’t like guys.

“Artists can be very emotional people,” she offered. “We feel a lot ... and that’s not necessarily a good or a bad thing. A lot of people don’t need to pick apart every single emotion, they have an experience, it might have been bad, but they can move on. I’m a songwriter, so writing songs is how I deal with things. I need to pick situations apart and feel every little bit of what has happened, and then I channel all of that into a song.”

She paused, thinking for a moment before continuing. “A lot of my songs are literally me just watching people’s actions and trying to understand them, trying to decipher them,” Rachel decided. “My songs are not solution-oriented, there is no, ‘Okay, we worked it out,’ my songs are more about processing the ‘why’ of what people do.”

“When I write a song, I do that for me,” she added, “but when I perform it, that’s for the audience.”

“This EP is very different from my single, ‘Abide,” Rachel concluded. “And, I think New York and Philadelphia and all of the cities that I have been to are going to continue to provide inspiration for me. Cities are so rich, you can’t help but be influenced by them. I think my writing is growing, hopefully moving forward, and hopefully moving forward in a good direction. I do feel like it’s getting a little bit more complex than it used to be, but I see that as a positive thing.”

Rachel’s latest EP, To Street & Transfer (available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc.), is a powerfully personal study of the human psyche. Living in New York City these past few years may have given her a slightly tougher exterior, but inside, she still has that remarkable ability to make you feel, to help you understand, and to offer comfort. That wonderful aspect is something that no environment will ever be able to fully take away from her. Rachel’s inner light shines brilliantly through via her music, she might be taking you to some slightly darker corners, but she also ultimately lifts your spirit higher than you ever imagined it could go. Rachel Lynn has a deep understanding of what it means to be human, and thankfully, she is willing to share. - AXS


"Rachel Lynn - "The Claim" (video) (Premiere)"

Rachel Lynn, a powerhouse vocalist out of New York City, bolsters her take on pop with her classical training as a singer, something quite uncommon in the modern pop landscape. Such vocal gusto is more than obvious from a single spin of her tune “The Claim”, which finds her in striking form.

Lynn tells PopMatters about the song and its new video, which you can view below, “I wrote ‘The Claim’ about people and situations I didn’t understand. Sometimes you’re left feeling trapped and lonely in response to the things you can’t seem to comprehend. I love the way these amazingly talented dancers were able to capture this kind of frustrated and isolated emotion.” - Pop Matters


"RACHEL LYNN GOES ACOUSTIC WITH “TEND TO THE FLAME”"

Generally speaking I’m not a singer / songwriter person–I only wanted to go to Lilith Fair that one year Missy Elliott played the main stage. If Solange isn’t going to cover it, I’m probably not interested.

But I can get beyond this one: Rachel Lynn. Anyone who starts a song with, “a little whiskey and a love song” probably has a Pinterest board with Patsy Cline portraits. She probably likes sparse interiors and metal jewelry and sings in an gritty, ballsy way. She’s probably emotional but never emo.

I’m so into that kind of singer / songwriter.

Rachel released her latest EP, To Street & Transfer (Spotify), in November. It’s a continuation of the sound she’s honing: those swooning, belting love songs that everyone and their parents’ cool friends love to hear. Check out her latest acoustic session here before you hear her music on a Shonda Rhimes show or before L’Oreal features her in a shampoo commercial. Here’s a new acoustic verision of “Tend To The Flame.” - Popbytes

"Rachel Lynn"

With the oversaturated music market these days it's not often a vocalist really elicits an emotional response with their performance. Brining that sort of passionate artistry back to the table is, Rachel Lynn, a classically trained vocalist whose original soulful pop music is entwined with her signature evocative lyrics. The NYC-based chanteuse’s sound resonates with the passion of a singer-songwriter raised on 90's pop and Motown masterpieces, which can be heard in her new EP To Street & Transfer [Nov. 2014].

Today Rachel has partnered up with AltSounds.com to offer fans an exclusive free download of her single “Tend to the Flame,” which can be found on her latest EP. When asked about the inspiration behind the song, Rachel shared, “’Tend to the Flame’ is a desperate plea of sorts, describing the hopeless feeling of unrequited love; the kind of unrequited love for someone who once did love you. You can lose sight of all things rational and start to believe that you would do anything to make it work; that you could do anything to make it work. In reality, that’s not how people, love or relationships work, but just for a moment, you let yourself go there; in fact, you push yourself there. It’s a lonely place to be, and it’s there that I wrote ‘Tend to the Flame’.”

She understood Rachel’s young love for music and encouraged her daughter to pursue that dream, even landing Rachel her first audition with the Peabody Children’s Choir.

Having studied music at The University of Maryland, College Park, Lynn has performed throughout the Maryland/Virginia/Washington, D.C. region as a solo artist and has also been fortunate enough to perform with ensemble groups at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. and The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, Maryland. Lynn has taught vocal technique both privately and in a workshop setting, truly allowing her love for the craft of singing to shine through in every aspect of her career.

Since relocating to NYC, Lynn has performed at numerous venues including Pianos, Rockwood Music Hall and Bowery Electric. She was named one of New Music Seminar's Top 100 Artists on the Verge for 2014, was selected to officially showcase at CMJ 2014, and was featured in publications such as The Philadelphia Examiner, AXS, The College Dropouts, You, Me & Charlie and more following the release of her acoustic EP in August of 2012.

"Vegan Artist Rachel Lynn Thankful For Animals With “Seeing Red” Single"

“Her latest release is the sizzling and soulful To Street & Transfer EP…a powerfully personal study of the human psyche.” -Allen Foster, AXS
New York, NY | November 23, 2015 – With the oversaturated music market these days it’s not often a vocalist really elicits an emotional response with their performance.

Rachel Lynn has a familiar look in her eye. It’s the look of a roaring desire to reach the “unattainable” no matter the obstacles.

Her emotionally charged songs bear fruit to a journey that is still unwritten — as the blooming artist is still learning and growing.

I have the pleasure to sit back at a local café in Williamsburg absorbing more than just the aroma of rich coffee as this young artist exerts a warm and positive energy that is unmatched — speaking on her latest EP, To Street & Transfer and much more. - ARTSY Mag


"Indie Video Premiere: Tend to the Flame by Rachel Lynn"

Indie singer songwriter, Rachel Lynn of Brooklyn has partnered up with us here at Indie Minded to premiere her brand new video for the track, Tend To The Flame! This new track will appear on her upcoming EP release To Street & Transfer, which drops in November.

We had a chance to sit down with Rachel briefly to ask her a few questions about the video and what’s to come for the rest of the year. Here’s what Rachel had to say:

Indie Minded: Thank you for allowing us to premiere your video on Indie Minded, Rachel. “Tend To The Flame” will appear on your upcoming EP called To Street & Transfer which drops this month, what made you decide to release “Tend To The Flame” as one of your lead singles on this EP?

Rachel Lynn: “Tend to the Flame” is one of the songs that I feel has really ventured away from my debut EP and gone in the direction of what is becoming my musical style –both vocally and in my writing. I feel it showcases where my music is headed.

IM: Tell us about “Tend To The Flame”, what’s the story behind this track?

RL: The song is about that helpless feeling where you’ve lost someone and you decide that you’d (irrationally) do anything to make it work. You’re essentially begging for a chance. It’s heart wrenching and, ultimately, pathetic; perfect songwriting material!

IM: Tell us a bit about how the video came together?

RL: The video was shot, directed, and edited by Brian Wade (DJ Stereotype), and he was so fun and creative to work with. We shot all over Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and I think we captured some really great elements of the neighborhood with shots of BK staples like the graffiti walls.

It was also important to me to get some performance shots in there since that’s what this is all about at the end of the day, so I’m really glad the whole band was involved.

IM: What’s next for you? Will the Northeast see a tour anytime soon? How about the rest of the US?

RL:Right now I’m working on booking some east coast shows–I’ve got an acoustic show coming up on Dec. 12th at XO Lounge in Philly, so that will be the one to hit after the EP release show on Nov. 11th at Carroll Place in NYC.

Ultimately, all I want to do is tour and play for as many people as possible! Check for all show dates at www.rachellynnsings.com, and thank you so so much for premiering “Tend to the Flame”!

"Highlighted Artist: Rachel Lynn"

Brooklyn’s young and determined songwriter Rachel Lynn has made music apart of her life from the start. Growing up to eventually take on music in high school and in college has led her to unforgettable experiences, including two releases and shows across the U.S.

Current Single: “Tend To The Flame”

How did you get your start in music?”

I began taking piano and voice lessons at a young age, which motivated me to try to assemble simple melodies and resulted in the creation of the first “songs” I ever wrote. I became very involved in choral ensembles growing up and continued to study music in college. It was in my college years that my songwriting began to take shape, and I started to develop an individual musical style.

What has been the highlight of your career so far?

The highlights of my career so far have been the releases of my self-titled EP (2012) and my sophomore EP, To Street & Transfer (November 2014). These projects involved the kind of “blood, sweat, tears” passion and sacrifice that pushes and pulls you, is ultimately very rewarding, and results in a very long nap

Why should people listen to you? What makes you different?

I have what I consider to be a very grounded passion for music and for singing. I still sit down at a piano to plunk out melodies and to see what works and what doesn’t. I think as the music industry evolves and changes, it’s important to present young people with organic music, real instruments, and personal story-telling. Sadly, it seems that those qualities are dwindling in a lot of today’s music.
