"Novato native Mia Rose Lynne has been mentioned in the same breath as Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell and Patty Griffin, and with this debut album she shows she deserves to be in that kind of world-class company." 
-Paul Liberatore, Marin Independent Journal

A northern California native, Mia grew up singing harmonies in the family western swing band and fell asleep in the Winnebago on summer nights to the sounds of campsite jamming at bluegrass festivals. She went on to pursue a career in musical theatre, touring nationally and internationally, and along the way, she found herself in Nashville, where her love for roots music resurfaced and the songs began to write themselves.

Mia’s pure, captivating vocals have been likened to artists such as Alison Krauss, Joni Mitchell, and Patty Griffin. Her songwriting has won numerous awards, including the 2017 Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition, 2017 Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase Contest, and the 2014 American Songwriting Awards, folk category.

OPEN SPACE, Mia's debut album, 2014, was recorded and produced in Nashville by Brendan Harkin and features Stuart Duncan on fiddle and Rob Ickes on dobro. Songs range from folk ballads with haunting string arrangements to bluegrass and folk-pop grooves.

Her second record FOLLOW ME MOON, released January 2016, features 11 tastefully stripped-down acoustic originals and was produced by Austin Filingo and recorded by Grammy® award-winning engineer, Tim Roberts.

 Paul Liberatore of the Marin Independent Journal describes FOLLOW ME MOON as, “Original Americana-style songs that come at romantic relationships with honesty, wit… life experience without sounding world weary, sincerity without self importance.”

“Lynne is a great example of the artists in Nashville these days who are making a living at more progressive musical crafts, not just watered-down pop-country, but at various art forms that can take them places they never dreamed of. And while so many, while well-intentioned, are pie-in-the-sky dreamers, Lynne is the real deal, a triple threat who can write, play, and sing just about anything for a living while being able to specialize in a folk/bluegrass/acoustic  style that fits her to a T.”
— Rick Moore, Music News Nashville

Mia will be joined by her mom on bass.

Annie Ernst (Mia’s mom) grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She led quite the adventurous life in her twenties, traveling the country in a van with her all-girl hippie band named Honey Creek and living in a teepee in Colorado and northern California. California is where she met her husband, Barry (Mia’s dad). They bonded instantly over music, singing songs together at a party, and they’ve been singing together ever since. Their band, Ain’t Misbehavin’ performs regularly in the San Francisco Bay Area and they have several original albums available at Annie is self-taught on the bass and can pretty much teach herself to do anything because she’s amazing (her daughter wrote this bio, by the way!) She is also the world’s most supportive, loving mother.
