The LYNNeS: Recipe For Disaster

Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson are acclaimed and prolific solo roots music artists. Now joining forces as a duo, they have just released an impressive debut album. This single features fluent vocal harmonies, a catchy melody, and a charming video. Call it a recipe for success.

The LYNNeS: Recipe For Disaster

By Kerry Doole

The LYNNeS - "Recipe For Disaster" (Indie): This is a roots music duo comprising Lynn Miles and Lynne Hanson (hence the name). Each is well-established as a highly-respected solo singer/songwriter, and they've now joined forces to formidable effect.


Their debut album, Heartbreak Song For The Radio, came out on Friday, and this single showcases its charms neatly. It is sung in unison, with the two voices harmonising fluently. There is a breezy tinge to the tune, though the lyrics stress the ingredients for a doomed relationship - "I get the blame, but it'll be your fault." The accompanying video clip is a low-key charmer. With any justice, it's a heartbreak song that'll make it to radio.

There's a wealth of experience at play in the twosome, with Juno nominee and multiple CFMA winner Miles having released 14 albums and Hanson (a winner of The Colleen Peterson Award) six. Miles produced two of Hanson's earlier albums, and their creative empathy is audible. Players on the consistently excellent album include Peter van Althen, Dave Draves (who recorded and mixed), and ace guitarists Kevin Breit and Keith Glass (Prairie Oyster).

After showcasing at Folk Alliance, The LYNNeS play UK and European dates, Feb. 21 to March 11.

Here’s Drake’s Reaction to a Woman Claiming She ‘Got Pregnant’ to ‘For All The Dogs’

Drizzy should just go ahead and rename his latest studio album to For All the Parents.

Drake certainly has a way with the pregnant ladies.

During the first Nashville stop of his It’s All a Blur Tour — Big as the What? with J. Cole earlier this month, a woman named Camille Smith brought a sign saying “I got pregnant to For All the Dogs (this is also my 5th time seeing you this tour).” But it was Drizzy’s first time seeing her because he clocked her sign and took a moment to respond, which can be seen in Smith’s TikTok clip that she captioned, “POV: Drake finally acknowledges you at your 5th show.”
