Biography

Lera Lynn was born in Texas and raised in Athens, Georgia, where she got her start in the band Birds and Wire, and soon decided to strike out on her own. In 2011, she managed to record her debut album, Have You Met Lera Lynn? which was released the following year and features songs such as "Whiskey" and "Bobby, Baby", inspired by her father's alcoholism, which took its toll on the young University of Georgia student in her early twenties. She then moved to Nashville, temple of country music, to get closer to the world she aspired to. Struggling to find a label to support her, in 2014 she self-produced her second opus, The Avenues, which paved the way for success with tracks such as "La Di Da". The album is even ranked in the Top 40 country records of the year by US magazine Rolling Stone. It was then that she found herself working alongside eminent producer T-Bone Burnett, who chose her to record several tracks for the soundtrack to season 2 of the TV series True Detective. This experience gave her the opportunity to record with one of her idols, Rosanne Cash, and even to play a small role in the series.
