From her website: Americana, roots music, rough-around-the-edges folk. Canadian songwriter Lynne Hanson prefers “porch music with a little red dirt.” Hanson songs are like a favorite pair of jeans. They’re rough around the edges, faded and worn through in spots, with a bit of honestly-acquired dirt ground into the seams. The record was produced by Juno-award winning Canadian songstress Lynn Miles “The songs on this record are honest and fearless.” More information about Lynne Hanson and her music at http://lynnehanson.com/. ~Jim
