Introduction

"Megan Lynch has performed in the San Francisco Bay Area for more than two decades now. LA’s punk movement, Channel 52, and Folk Roots magazine all short-circuited her neurons such that she can go from singing a Kurt Weill art song one moment to singing ‘Rawhide’ in Swedish the next. She uses a full palette of thrums, yelps, croons, yodels, growls and ululations in order to paint the picture called for by the song. She is equally at home singing her original compositions, Tin Pan Alley, rock, pop, country, blues, light opera, and various world musics.

Now she’s released her debut album, Songs the Brothers Warner Taught Me, interpreting Jazz Age tunes featured in the classic Warner Brothers cartoons of Bugs Bunny and others. Backed by two members of R. Crumb’s legendary Cheap Suit Serenaders, Tony Marcus and Robert Armstrong, Megan wraps her big, rich, sassy, swinging mezzo around these merry melodies, spinning them far beyond the versions we know by Daffy Duck and Michigan J. Frog. It’s both a fascinating work of musical scholarship and an absolute blast."

For Google+ folks, my interests include art, music, history, languages, gardening, social and couples dance, cycling, comics, and more.

I've been hearing a lot of "Hooray for Hollywood" instrumentals today. If you want to hear the lyrics, I got 'em. https://meganlynch.bandcamp.com/track/hooray-for-hollywood

I love this album. Your version of "The Lady in Red" has gotten a lot of shower play.

I was asked to write up my experience making carob-infused rum for the first time. It won't be the last time I make it...

When I was growing up in Pasadena, there wasn't a lot of nightlife, even less if you were underage. Luckily, a friend introduced me to The Espresso Bar. It was the first place I ever saw espresso offered. They had a fantastic jukebox, hung local artists' work on the walls, and booked live acoustic music. I played there in the late '80s, right after recording my first demo. The Espresso Bar was a haven to me when I was in high school.

The founder of The Espresso Bar, like a lot of creative types, is not rolling in money. He needs dentures but can't afford the cost. He's started a crowdfunding campaign and is about halfway to his goal. It's not a huge amount so I think it's TOTALLY doable if people just kick in the cost of what they'd put towards coffee or a beer.

In fact, if you do and show me that you have , I will give you a code so you can download a digital copy of my album for free.  Help this guy put some teeth back in his grin. LET'S DO THIS, PEOPLE!

Decided to have a little fun with data tonight. iTunes lets me know what date, what was downloaded and what zipcode it was downloaded from. So I made a Google Map of all the downloads from iTunes of my album or individual songs from my album that were made in 2013.  I look forward to getting old data and making maps for those years.

The state of Texas remains #1, narrowly beating out California. The only non-US downloads this year were from Canada and Brazil.

Clearly I need to get my overseas friends more postcard ads for the album!

Of course, the album is available places besides iTunes, but iTunes is where I get a data breakdown. In fact, my album is on sale for half price right NOW at Bandcamp (through 11:59pm Pacific Time on Jan 6, 2013) http://meganlynch.bandcamp.com/album/songs-the-brothers-warner-taught-me

Making myself an April Fool, I'll make "Songs the Brothers Warner Taught Me" available for free on Bandcamp for 24 hrs starting at midnight Pacific Daylight Time tonight.

If you've bought the album elsewhere, you might still want to download from Bandcamp for the extra bonus (non-WB) track. If you have friends you think would enjoy the album who don't own it yet, you might want to let them know.

Bandcamp has a tool to tweet it when you download so if you're on Twitter and can spare the time to hit that button, that would be fool --- I mean COOL!

"Songs the Brothers Warner Taught Me" is on sale @bandcamp for $4 Only 31¢ per track for these interpretations of songs used in classic Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies!

$4 for a cup of coffee is a one-time thing. $4 for an album is money well spent for music you can enjoy over & over again and make memories to. Discount ends Jan 6, 2014.
