Lynn Rosenthal

Lynn Rosenthal describes her Native American flute playing as "a way to give voice to your soul without speaking. This self-taught musician/composer's soul has been singing, wailing, rejoicing, and lamenting through her original, strictly instrumental, compositions since 1993. Yet, for Lynn the songwriter, melding words and music is a much more recent phenomenon. Though she may have attempted a song or two early on, she hadn't quite found her voice as a poet and as a songstress until a friend prompted her to become involved in a local writers' guild in September of 2001. It was at this point that a latent singer/songwriter began to emerge. Since her first serious attempts, Lynn has penned more than 40 original songs, many of which she has been playing and singing at local coffee shops, poetry readings, and musical showcases since October 2001. While her multi-colored and multi-textured singing voice and her unique open tuning guitar stylings make it easy for her to express this newfound musical vocabulary, she still enjoys mixing things up and staying true to her beginnings by including at least one set of flute music whenever she plays.

On a new five-song CD release entitled Five Rough Cuts - a timely follow-up to the instrumental, flute-based The Night Has Eyes - Lynn has succeeded in capturing the intimacy of her live vocal/guitar performances and in unveiling her spiritual and deeply personal songwriting talents. Underlying the bluesy chord progressions and catchy melody of "Love Take Me Higher," the CD's first cut, is a painfully emotional tale of a close friend's unsuccessful battle with heroin addiction and the writer's ongoing attempt to come to terms with a profound and devastating loss. Turning the looking glass even more inward, Lynn wrestles with her own psyche in "Thoughts and Recognitions," a song inspired by a significant turning point in her life when she was beginning to choose between sticking to a well paying, but stifling, career as a "dot-com" tech and the thrilling but uncertain prospect of venturing out into the world of the independent musical artist. "I'm always asking the big questions," she suggests. "These are the lenses through which I view the world. While most of her songs come from personal inspiration, she strives for universalism in her songwriting, something, which allows listeners to make an instantaneous connection to her music. Also, immediately identifiable is an innovative yet comforting musical style strongly rooted in the tradition of folk immortals like Carole King and Joni Mitchell. At the same time, Lynn is quick to acknowledge more contemporary influences such as Tracy Chapman, Sarah McLachlan, Indigo Girls, and Susan Tedeschi. Not the least bit conspicuous is a sticker on Rosenthal's Charvel acoustic six-string, which reads "Use the Force," underscored by the OM symbol, which marks the sound of the Big Bang - the start of creation. This one-time religious studies major laughingly admits that because of this very public motto, she is often mistaken for a Star Wars enthusiast, but she is quick to point out that her interpretation and message has much more to do with the interpersonal than the intergalactic. More to the point, her message is one of personal activism focused on inspiring "creative positive change."
Living by her words, Lynn Rosenthal has become the founder of Rainbow Hawk Music, a cyber-space residence and supportive community for fellow independent musical artists, which she hopes will one day become a musical cooperative and serious multi-genre independent record label - an anecdote for what she sees as a predominantly image-based, marketing driven music industry. Rounding out Lynn's cadre of musical and artistic talents is a keen interest in percussion instruments. When she is not singing her own tunes or playing flute, she can be found teaching hand drumming techniques and backing up other independent musicians and songwriters on bongos, congas, or anything else she can get a hold of.
