The LYNNeS: Recipe For Disaster

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.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
