Lyncs

Lyncs, singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, blends the elements of folk, pop, and indie rock into her own chapter of music. Noted for memorable and connective lyrics, her debut work, "The Safety EP", was self-recorded, performed, and released August of 2018. After touring locally and opening for artists such as Young the Giant, New Vices, and August & Alden, Lyncs recorded and released "If You Just" and "Black Hole" in 2019. WXPN quotes her journey as "Easy-going acoustic tuneage to ethereal electro-pop singer-songwriting."
