Lynne Hanson was born and raised in Ottawa and started playing guitar as a teenager, eventually working her way to her award-winning debut album, Things I Miss, in 2006. Two more albums quickly followed, Eleven Months (2008) and Once the Sun Goes Down (2010). Each new release garnered critical praise, earning Lynne a Canadian Folk Music Award nomination in 2009, an invitation to the Kerrville Folk Festival as a New Folk Finalist (2009), and winning the prestigious Colleen Peterson Songwriting Award in 2010..

At first listen, Lynne's warm, gritty, boot stompin' music leads you through the southern USA, though she hails from Canada. Her sound is born honestly through a lifetime of experience and influence, expressed through the rock, blues and roots that bleeds from her very being. With a liberal amount of Texas grit and a polished Nashville sensibility, Lynne's songs are familiar and comfortable, yet fearless and strong. She likes things a little rough around the edges, but her deep bluesy croon is pure and full of fortitude. No matter what the song, there's a weight and a warmth to her expression.

In 2014 Lynne released her fourth album River of Sand with producer Lynn Miles; a JUNO-award winning artist in her own career. River of Sand stands out as the creative output of the personal journey endured over her four-year break, and saw her writing mature into a more intuitive and visceral style. Lynne's latest album, Uneven Ground, was released this spring and she is currently on tour in support of the album. Although Lynne often tours with a full band, for her Regina show she will be performing solo.
