Biography

"Organic soul with an edge" is how Traycee Lynn's music is described by critics at Soul Brother Records in London, and this description is probably the most accurate to date.

Traycee Lynn is a songwriter, vocalist, and hip-hop artist who has been writing and beating hip-hop rhythms on tables since she was 8 (and now beating hip-hop rhythms on djembes). In November 2006, she released her second cd, this one titled The Awakening where she wrote all of the songs including a popular duet titled "I Don't Have to Be Right".

Lynn is the latest wave to bust through Philly's underground since the neo-soul era of Jill Scott. Her wide range of listeners include the young and the older adults. Her hypnotic choruses are catchy, sandwiched in between well thought out lyrics with a message for everyone's spirit.

Her style has been described as a"gumbo of the greats" such as Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu with an angelic sprinkle of Sade.

Her band includes Urban Shaman (a 2 to 3 piece drumming and percussion team of congo, djembe and standard drums), one bass player, one cello player, and a background male vocalist.

Lyrics

I Don't Have to Be Right (feat. Chris Cream)

Written By: Tracey L. Bryant (aka Traycee Lynn)


Her: I don’t have to be right this time(2x) / Don’t know what tomorrow holds / But as long as your / holding me / I don’t have to be right this time

Him: I don’t have to be right this time (2x) / Neither one of us wants to go / And the world can be so cold / I don’t have to be right this time

Chorus - Do-doo...

Her: You don’t have to be wrong this time (2x)/ Let’s forget I found her number / And leave the past behind / You don’t have to be wrong this time /

Him: I don’t have to be right this time (2x) / We’ve had our ups and downs / And its too late to turn around / I don’t have to be right this time

Chorus: Do- doo

Them: You don’t have to be wrong this time (2x) / I’ve done my dirt too / It just hasn’t got back to you / You don’t have to be wrong this time (2x) / I appreciate you so / And if it means that you means that you might go / I don’t have to be right this time
