The Follow Up to An Award Nominated Album
Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival’s latest project, titled Gypsy Soul, released April 14, features music steeped in the Blues. Gypsy Soul creates a perfect, Blues-based pairing as a follow-up to the band's Independent Blues Music Award nominated “Best Blues Rock Album” Nothing Holding Me Down.
Mixing classic rock undertones, soulful vocals, the songwriting vibe of the 70s, wanderlust, and plenty of reverb-drenched guitar solos with dual guitar moments, the band's new studio album is set to deliver that old-school sound.
Soul Singing, Dual Guitar Slinging, Blues Rock Music
Gypsy Soul features a diverse pallet of influences capturing various genres on this release such as Rock, Blues, R&B, and a dash of funky undertones. This album is reminiscent 60s and 70s vibe music melted into a pot of contemporary Blues-Rock. Written and produced by Jennifer Lyn and bandmate Richard Torrance, Gypsy Soul showcases the pair's compositional and lyrical progression as a writing team.
The album opens with the title track, “Gypsy Soul”, a swinging Bluesy number about the helpless pull of one's love of rock and roll music before ripping into the funky Bluesy number “Low Down Dirty Shame” about the story of love gone awry. Lyn’s vocals really shine through on the song “Going Round in Circles”, a blues ballad drenched in soul and paired with a reverb-soaked dynamic lead guitar delivery by Torrance. “Give Me All Your Lovin” is a playful mix of Blues and Classic Rock featuring the tale of an interesting night on the town. “You Can Take It All” is the most telling of Lyn and Torrance’s progression as a writing pair. This song showcases the true singer-songwriter dynamic, the impact of a stripped-down crafted song, and the power of harmonized voices.
Lyn and Torrance are joined by Jim Anderson (drums), Chris Addison (bass), and Barb Jiskra (keys). The diverse background of each musician created a divergence of individual styles that complement the overall texture of the music.
AWARD NOMINATED ALBUM
ABOUT THIS ALBUM
It’s Only Rock n Roll, but we like it…
On the plains of North Dakota, USA nestled between the tall grass and the open prairie sky sits a recording studio. The sound of overdriven guitars with dueling lead harmonies and classic rock undertones rips through the air followed by vocals that reach you with a deep resonation in your soul.
This type of music, uncharacteristic of the area, is akin to a sound of decades past and Jennifer Lyn and her band, Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival, are determined to share their spin on this style of music with the world.
Real Humans Making Real Music
If you want to hear top 40 radio, this isn’t it!
Nominated for the Independent Blues Music Awards 'Best Blues Rock Album', Nothing Holding Me Down features music from a woman who clearly has a soul set ablaze like a person baptized in the river of Rock n Roll.
Lyn was a child heavily influenced by the sounds heard while spinning her parents’ vinyl, and that influence led her to capture various genres on this release such as Rock, Blues, R&B, and a dash of roots music. This album is reminiscent of 60s and 70s vibe music melted into a pot of contemporary Blues-Rock.
Nothing Holding Me Down
The album kicks off with the title track, “Nothing Holding Me Down”, which grabs you and lures you to shake what your mama gave you while leaving you wanting more. The second song on the album, “I Hope We Make A Change”, leaves you inspired with well-written thought-provoking lyrics backed by a guitar-driven low-resonating drop “D” rock riff.
The middle of the album is like a nice soft blanket that wraps you in a warm embrace as you’re serenaded with the Blues ballad “Lay Your Memory Down” and guided through storytime with the upbeat Motown feel of “I Wish You Would”.
Lyn and her band finish the album with a call to justice rocker titled “Weight of The World” and a roots-based closer titled “Everything Will Be Alright”. In all, the album's eclectic mix of influence is a nicely kneaded ball of Blues-based music just out of the oven and it’s smoking hot!
Bit of The Old School, Bit of The New School
Lyn is joined this album by seasoned music veterans Richard Torrance (guitar, vocals, keys), Jim Anderson (drums), and Chris Addison (bass). Recorded in Lyn’s home studio, she co-wrote and co-produced the album with Torrance. Lyn also engineered, mixed, and mastered the project.
