THE CHRISTY LYNN BAND
"Christy's voice alone is something you will never forget, but the band doesn't stop there in their seemingly effortless attempt to be remembered.
This is not your average two-piece band. Their sound is full of life and their songwriting is unique in its own right leaving no reason for the listener to walk away from this song craving anything else but to hear it again."
Influenced by the stories of folk music, the deep sorrow of the blues, and the free feeling of country and Americana music, Christy Lynn Band has created a new but familiar sound.
Hailing from the mountains of Western North Carolina, they are debuting their new collection of songs that were written in 2017.
"It’s Barrett who, in a long white dress, is haunting and desperate and a little bit scary in “Bringing Me Down,” the band’s new release. The roots/Americana song is paired down, deliberate and intense with Barrett’s sorghum-and-whiskey vocals."
-Alli Marshall on Bringing Me Down
Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show affirms that Jay Brown is “the most authentic songster to come out of the Carolina High Country since a man named Doc Watson”.
A singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, he has hundreds of classic songs in his repertoire as well as a hundred-odd originals. He performs with Boone-based roots band The Lazybirds, Indian-flavored world music group Shantavaani and early-jazz cats Swing Guitars. In 2007 he founded The Jay Brown One-Man-Band, in which the sole member handles vocals, guitar, harmonica, percussion and piano.
The busy musician can be found gigging in clubs and pubs around Asheville and Western North Carolina, but has performed and studied in locales around the world, including New Orleans, California, India, Ghana, and Peru.
