Singer-songwriter Lera Lynn recently grabbed our attention opening for Joan Osborne at World Cafe Live with her rootsy Southern noir; kind of a cross between Nicole Atkins, Mindy Smith and Gillian Welch. Lynn (no relation to Loretta, if you were wondering) released her debut album last year called Have You Met Lera Lynn?, an accomplished collection of Americana that showcases her excellent vocals, songwriting and dexterous band. Lynn recently released a 7-inch single that includes a sultry and smokey cover of “Ring Of Fire” that you can download below.
