LYNN DRURY AND HER BAND ARE HEADING TO OTTAWA CANADA IN JULY 2012 FOLLOWED BY A WEST COAST TOUR IN AUGUST 2012.

The Queen of the Mississippi Grit/ NOLA Groove sound is hitting the road to bring her unique gritty and pretty roots rocking sound to her beloved fans in Canada, California and Oregon. But it costs lots of money to put a tour together with a band, and we really need the help of fans everywhere and those who will be new fans once they hear the Americana power-punch she is rapidly becoming!

For those who aren't yet familiar with her sound, please check out lynndrury.com and/or her page on reverbnation.com for bio, press accolades, photos, video and lots of streaming music! You can also sample her music on itunes and CD Baby!

Lynn will be playing the world renowned RBC Royal Bank Blues Fest in Ottawa Canada for 2 performances on July 7 and 8, 2012. She also plays the internationally famous "Rainbow Bistro" in Ottawa. Though she's being paid for the performances, the travel costs for her and the band well exceed the contract amounts. Please help her spread some Lynn lovin' to the northern neighbors!

In August 2012, Lynn and her band make their way to the West Coast for a tour to bring her Mississippi Grit/NOLA Groove sound to her California and Oregon fans. She has received airplay in both states and Eugene Oregon's KRVM even selected "Chemical Road" off of her 2011 album "Sugar On The Floor" as the Best Americana song of 2011. 

Lynn's "Sugar On The Floor", produced by renowned drummer and producer Carlo Nuccio (who plays on the record) is a collaboration of Lynn's powerfully emotive songwriting and musical NOLA notables such as Ivan Neville (Dumpstaphunk), Tommy Malone (Subdudes), Eric Traub (Dr. John) Matt Perrine and Craig Klein (Bonerama), guitarist Alex McMurray, keyboardist Bill Malchow, cellist Helen Gillet, and many others. It is a rich landscape of Lynn's true to life writing, singing and guitar playing enveloped by the drumbeats, brass and keyboards ("Smiley Face", "Frenchmen Street and "Chemical Road") that make New Orleans' music so rich. The old school NOLA bluesy original "Bluestreak" harkens back to the days of early Irma Thomas and the Cosimo Matassa's famous studio where the world was introduced to many of NOLA's pre-Motown early R&B pioneers. On the other side of the coin, "Maybe I Don't Love" is Lynn's soft, sweet, apologetic hug to unnamed persons and perhaps to herself. Her diversity in writing makes her one of the most amazing talents of today's Americana genre.

Lynn's "All You Need", produced by Lynn and nationally renowned producer Jimbo Mathus (Squirrel Nut Zippers, et al...) is an introspective journey of alt country and bluesy  orginals, showcasing her incredible writing, at times softly melancholy ("Disappear"), other times ascerbic or resigned to fate (the title cut "All You Need" and "Dream"), yet other times witty and wise ("Down The Road", a song attributed to her beloved father's advice).
