Singer-songwriter Lera Lynn, born in Texas, raised in Georgia, and now based in Nashville, self-released her sophomore album, The Avenues (out now), which continues to receive praise and critical acclaim from many sources. The album was covered by NPR’s popular “All Things Considered,” and appeared in the “Top 50 Albums of the Year” from American Songwriter (ranking #14), Rolling Stone, Huffington Post and numerous other “Best Albums of the Year” lists.
In 2014, Lynn started working with legendary producer T Bone Burnett writing and recording music for the critically acclaimed HBO series, TRUE DETECTIVE. Lynn is also featured as the recurring bar singer in TRUE DETECTIVE, performing at “The Black Rose,” the dingy dive bar where characters Ray and Frank often meet to discuss their private business dealings. T Bone describes Lynn’s role saying, “She’s significant in there,” and explains how “The Black Rose” and the scenes therein are “…the beating heart of the show… that bar is where TRUE DETECTIVE happens. That’s the psychosphere. Something feels very central about it.”
Electromagnetic Recordings/Harvest Records in partnership with HBO will release TRUE DETECTIVE MUSIC FROM THE HBO SERIES on August 14. Lynn’s first single from the album, “The Only Thing Worth Fighting For” written by Lynn, Rosanne Cash and TBone Burnett, got fans buzzing when it bowed in the teaser video for Season 2 of TRUE DETECTIVE. The teaser has now surpassed 35 million views since it’s release. As the show progresses, more original music is released with each episode, often featuring a new Lera Lynn release.
