" Lynn is a musical force of nature. She has an innate ability to collaborate with organizations and individuals alike to bring a truly exceptional experience to audiences. Her energy is captivating.

~ Max P. Erickson, Events & Stewardship Coordinator, Park Nicollet Foundation
My keynote work is a unique blend of authentic speaking/storytelling, playful audience interaction, and live, soul-stirring original music. I collaborate with organizations and event strategy teams to create transformative, memorable, high-impact emotional experiences for your community.
After working with your team to carefully consider your event goals, guests, messaging, space, timeline and other key elements, I curate a customized, engaging performance experience that amplifies your message.
On stage, I build immediate connection with the audience, and continue to "read the room" and intuitively respond to the moment.
(Sometimes I even create live music in the moment, like in the video clips below!)
Together, we become an energized, engaged community
with a shared focus on what matters most.
"People will never forget how you made them feel.”
~ Maya Angelou
I believe people learn best when their hearts and (both sides of their) brains are engaged. My approach is influenced by extensive experience performing, improvising, presenting, facilitating, composing and recording albums, traveling and collaborating internationally, as well as working as a board-certified music therapist in trauma/hospital settings.
My work is adaptable to your unique event goals, messaging and community.
I especially welcome partnerships with those who empower women, or support whole-person-healing within the healthcare system.
