Lynn Jackson looks back on latest album

Since getting laid off  from her copy editing job by the Kitchener-Waterloo Record several years ago after a long career in journalism, Kitchener based singer songwriter Lynn Jackson has been able to focus on making music over the past 10 years and has since released eight albums.Lynn Jackson returns to Lethbridge this week.

She returns to Lethbridge to play the Owl Acoustic Lounge, Jan. 29 with Lethbridge singer songwriter Mercedes Fawns.
 She just released her eighth album  since 2004 “Songs of Rain, Snow and Remembering,” in October 2015.

“Hopefully I can do a bigger tour next year, time permitting,” said Jackson, who plays a handful of Alberta and B.C. shows in January and February before  returning to Southern Ontario.
 She plays frequently  around Southern Ontario.
“I find I have to travel farther to play original music now. I hope that doesn’t sound too cynical,” she observed, adding cover bands are most popular around her hometown of Kitchener-Waterloo.

 She is pleased with the more orchestral and introspective sound of her most recent CD.

“It is more orchestral. There are a lot of strings arrangements and a lot of it is based around the piano,” she observed.
“I approached it from a completely different place,” she said.“

 It’s a complete left turn from my other albums. I’m working on a rock and roll album, but it isn’t quite done yet and it will be a complete turn from to his one too,” she said.
“On the other albums there are a lot of love songs. A lot of it this one is from a more vulnerable place. I’ve cultivated a more reflective album,” she said.
“But while it is a more sad and reflective album, there is a lot of diversity on it,” she continued.


This quick tour will be as stripped down as her  2014 album “The Acoustic Sessions.”
She is excited to play with Mercedes Fawns.
“She’s pretty talented,” she said.
