Rachel Lynn’s Got A Show With AJR In NYC & Reveals “Tend To The Flame” Acoustic Vid!

rachelWith the over-saturated music market these days it’s not often a vocalist really elicits an emotional response with their performance. Bringing that sort of passionate artistry back to the table is, Rachel Lynn, a classically trained vocalist whose original soulful pop music is entwined with her signature evocative lyrics. The NYC-based chanteuse’s sound resonates with the passion of a singer-songwriter raised on 90’s pop and Motown masterpieces, which can be heard in her new EP To Street & Transfer [Nov 2014]Today, Rachel has partnered up with PopBytes to unveil the first video from her unplugged series, a stripped down rendition of her single “Tend to the Flame.”

In addition to sharing this new series with fans, Rachel is also excited to announce she’ll be opening for Warner Brother’s Records band, AJR, at New York City’s The Studio at Webster Hall on March 5th!
