The best kept secret in music

Press


“The music on Black Halo is a blend of traditional pop/rock and modern country with fabulous vocals that share her emotions and sensitivity…. V. has amazing vocal control and clarity of tone… This well-produced CD showcases her unmistakable style….Her songs contain a
determination and purpose that is beautifully expressed… Black Halo is truly a wonderful
collection of great songs performed to perfection by V. K. Lynne. Her strong vocals range from subtle tenderness to all out power, mixed with memorable melodies. The music is down-to-earth, well balanced and oh, so sweet.”
- Musical Discoveries


“With one foot in the traditional rock and the other one in the country scene, she isn’t far away from the semi-legend Melissa Etheridge musically. Her style will also appeal to fans of Sheryl Crow and Chantal with a good and consistent quality on this debut called “Black Halo”. Songs like ”Become Again”, ”Are You Still Here” and “Trading On 15” are very touching and emotional… She also has a rockier side like on the title track, but I prefer the softer ones here with more emotions and sensitivity. Maybe is it because that I’m dreaming away when listening to them. It doesn’t take many seconds ‘til I’m riding on the highway in my Ford Mustang and look how the day turns to night and just feel a nice and warm breeze in my face... Wanna join me? No problem at all, check out this chick and get yourself a nice dose of pure rock and we’ll be driving against the horizon maybe today, maybe tomorrow.” - Johan Wippson


“…a beautiful blend of straight forward country-fied guitars and vocals. This lady is not only gorgeous, with amazing international marketing appeal, but her music is bloody fantastic. V.K.Lynne is a name which is to travel and be famous...her band is cool and well balanced making her sound 'transportable' out of the US market into Europe.” - Eat This Music (Scotland)


“V. K. Lynne shows how 'it' is  supposed to be done.  'It' is the total package; songwriting, production, and mastering.  This CD is a joy to listen to with each track painting its own individual color of a larger, quite beautiful picture… the music is right, the artist is on, the band a fine rhythmic timepiece; well, you get the picture”.

“Let me start off by saying SEXINESS CAN GET YOU EVERYTHING and VK LYNNE is DEFINITELY SEXY! OK with that out of my system, let's get onto the review!...You can tell she has lived these words!...
VK LYNNE has an amazing control over her voice she knows how to work it and she's comfortable with the tunes she's carrying!...reminds me of KRIS KRISTOFFERSON’S writing style… and Train songs... I wish I had more time to elaborate over and over and over but the
easiest thing to say is BUY THIS CD PLEASE!!! It's a TREAT!
Something special here- I wish her the best.”

Bio

‘V.’ hails from Philadelphia, PA, where she recorded her first release, The Key of V. Once in L.A., it became her calling card, along with the review it received:

“With Melissa Etheridge attitude and Sheryl Crow sing-along-ability, this lady has a penchant for memorable choruses and strong melody lines… ‘V’ is a breath of fresh air against our stagnant local rock scene.” Promethean Crusade Magazine

The former Monogroove frontwoman played with the band long enough for Music Connection Magazine to declare:

“Following V.’s lead, Monogroove comes out of the gates running and rarely lets up. Completely enveloping the small venue in sound, they perform with an efficient unpretentiousness that allows them to simply get up, play the hell out of their instruments, and get off... Serving as proof that a band can play aggressively and still retain sugary harmonies, this five-piece blurs the lines between modern country, pop and rock, with the emphasis on rock.”

After 2004’s Best Female Vocalist nomination for the Rock City News awards, she headed back into the studio with new material to create Black Halo. L.A.’s KLOS found it worth notice, playing several tracks on their Local Licks show, and fan favorites, My Bones, Scarlet Rain, and title track Black Halo, are ubiquitous on the
internet.
Currently, ‘V.’ is hosting and producing Poetronigirl’s ‘Acoustically Speaking’, presenting many of L.A.’s best-kept-secret songwriters, including herself, with acclaimed poet Roni Walter. The show holds a monthly residency at L.A.’s Room 5.
It goes without saying that she continues to amass material, and has begun
writing for other artists as well. She has recently placed a song on a new Canadian artist’s debut effort.
Blessed by her good fortune, ‘V.” believes strongly in giving back. She is running a promotion, ‘Christmas Angels’ , for JDRF, The Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, to donate a portion of all sales of Black Halo, up until Christmas, to the foundation. Previously, she worked in this way with Hearts Giving Hope, and in 2006 will be lending her support to N Rock United.
