V.K. Lynne

V.K. Lynne

BandRockAmericana

The sound of Melissa Etheridge and Alanis Morisette mudwrestling. Southern sassy rock with an edge and a catchy chorus you can't get rid of with Listerine.

Biography

In 2001, V. and her guitar left Philadelphia, where she had been told that 'girls don't play rock and roll', to come to Los Angeles where they most certainly did and do. Despite the previous generalization, her 3-song demo had received this critique in an East Coast publication:

"This is straight up chick rock, yet her powerful vocals and strong choruses give off enough virility to please those on both sides of the gender fence, with Melissa Etheridge attitude and Sheryl Crow sing-a-long-ability, this lady has a penchant for memorable choruses and strong melody lines...a breath of fresh air against [Philly's] stagnant local rock scene..." .
-Promethean Crusade Magazine

So, armed with those words and a new, 10 song CD, she became lead singer for a local LA band within weeks of her arrival. Music Connection declared:

"Following V.'s lead, Monogroove (former band) comes out of the gates running and rarely lets up...this five piece blurs the lines between modern country, pop and rock, with the emphasis on rock ...mixing its mojo with a little Southern and country flavor, they create hard-charging rock with truckloads of pop melody and vocal harmony..."
-LA. Music Connection Magazine

Now, solo, the "little blond with the big voice" has formed her own Southern Rock backup band, and is hard at work on yet another collection of new songs.
