"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.
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!
$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.
First of all, absolutely free, is ' Holiday Music. He's done a holiday song every year for quite a few years. I even sang on one in 2001. Check them out. They run the gamut of styles and they're absomolutely free.
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!
I will be speaking on carob trees. I'll speak about the carob research project I've set up for myself and what I've found out about the history of carob in Southern California. I'll speak a bit about the plant itself. And I'll have some tasty carob baked goods with me.
