“Adult contemporary sounds with a splash of pop and rock, and a dash of blues and country, a voice reminiscent of Dusty Springfield and Rita Coolidge, and songwriting comparable to in the likes of Sheryl Crow ” this and more have all been said of singer–songwriter Terry Lynn.

Often witty and tongue-in-cheek, other times dark and introspective her songs have a feeling of familiarity to them. Message driven, her lyrics voice strong opinions, yet are delivered so personally, she manages to come across without sounding heavy handed or preachy.

From the soft sultry sounds of “Desire” to the peppy pop of “Daydreams” to the alternative rock sounds of “Blind Fate” her versatility as a performer compels you to stick around for just one more song. There seems to be a little bit of something for everyone in this talented performer and writer. - Vibe Wire, profile


"Terry Lynn is one of those gifted artists that lights up the stage....and when you listen to her velvet voice, all seems right atthat moment in time."

Tracey Edwards
host
Fox 4 - "The Morning Blend" - Fox Television


"This artist’s music paints lucid pictures of human nature for her audience. Songs like “We Can Be” manage to captivate the most minimal details and get to the bottom of things by singing personal, delicate, and expansive music. Conrads joins enthusiasm with a keen sense of phrasing which is something essential for a vocalist…something she calls genuine. "

"her two passions, words and music, would fuse together years later and make her one of the most sincere and influential songwriters today."

Los Angeles singer-songwriter Allison Sattinger

Influenced by the classic singer-songwriters of the 60's and 70's: Terry Lynn's songs seek to exploring the relationship with self and the perceptions that color our view of our world, and each other.

As early as 3 years of age she understood the power and value of a good song. She was often seen in her stocking feet going from neighbor to neighbor's house with a song and a pot from the kitchen.
Continually in trouble for being a chatter box in school. Her love for language and music would eventually collide into the conversations that are her songs. "Its the opportunity to share my very personal emotions, to communicate my truth, that's what makes my life fullfilling. I feel so blessed to have a place to share my life and my music."

RESUME:
Terry began her career performing in musical theater productions at a very early age. She enjoys improvisational theater and performs regularly with The Bone Island Buccaneers a swashbuckling theater troupe from Key West.
