Lera Lynn

Lera Lynn is a Nashville based artist/songwriter/producer who got her start in Athens, Ga. She first came to national attention through her writing and performances in the HBO series True Detective. 

Lynn's first LP, Have You Met Lera Lynn, was released in 2011. In 2014, she released an EP entitled Lying in the Sun and also began creating music for the second season of the crime drama series True Detective. 

Working with songwriter and music producer T Bone Burnett, the two collaborated with singer-songwriter Rosanne Cash at Burnett's home in Los Angeles, CA with two of the resulting tracks being included on Cash's 2018 album She Remembers Everything. 

After approving the musical tracks, series creator Nic Pizzolatto cast Lynn as a recurring character who performs the songs in a dive bar frequented by the main characters.

Her 2016 album Resistor was reviewed in Rolling Stone.
