“Female blues guitarists have long been an important part of the blues rock world. You only have to think of ladies like Ana Popovic, Bonnie Raitt or Joanne Shaw Taylor to understand what I mean. And now we can also add Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival to that list.”

album release 'Badlands'
"Badlands is a hearty Blues Rock album that's gleaming with gems. If you are hearing Lyn for the first time, the refined rhythm of opener 'Burned It Down' serves as the perfect hors d' oeuvre for the sumptuous banquet that lies ahead. This tune's flowing quality brings to life all the elements that make Lyn such an enduring prospect, like the classy rasp of her vocals and the simplicity of her guitar playing. The same vibe extends to the title track which stomps along nicely with an elegant funky riff. 'Muddy Water' heads down a slight Gospel/Bluegrass route with generous helpings of old-school slid before she unleashes her inner rocker with the hard-nosed 'Anything But Me'. It's soon back to mainstream Blues for 'I'm Running To You' and 'West to Bismarck', and these two songs once again highlight her imposing and distinctive vocal delivery.
The closer 'Goodnight Sweet Darling' took me straight back to that classic early Heart sound with its acoustic-led, mystical gypsy vibe. It's hands down the crowning glory on one of the most honest albums you'll hear all year."

Born in Minnesota, Jennifer Lyn grew up between two worlds: one, her family’s love and appreciation for traditional country, folk, and gospel music in her home; the other, the years she spent absorbing many diverse forms of music while living in various places throughout the United States. Getting serious about the guitar in 2013, it didn’t take her long to decide to front her own band, Jennifer Lyn & The Groove Revival. Backed by seasoned veterans Richard Torrance - Guitar/Vocals (Capital/Shelter Records), Jim Anderson - Drums/Vocals (The Pointer Sisters, Maria Muldaur), and Kevin Holm - Bass, Jennifer and her band share their broad musical background with their growing group of fans.
Her debut album I’m All Wrong for You Baby (released in October 2016) touched on her musical diversity with songs ranging from traditional Blues, Rock, and ballads with gospel undertones. Her new album, Badlands (released in February 2018), delves even further and casts an eye on a blend of different musical experiences creating a variation of Blues music that embraces a wide pallet of many sub-genres. Her songs on the new album are fueled by her soulful vocals, burning desire to play guitar and beautiful accompaniment from her band.
“Jennifer Lyn proves that she will be a force to be reckoned with in the Blues Rock world with 'Badlands'. She's a gifted singer and guitarist who's also capable of digging deep from within as a songwriter.”
