Lynn Miles is one of Canada’s most accomplished singer/songwriters with five albums to her credit including the stark Unravel, winning Miles a 2003 Juno Award for Roots & Traditional solo album of the year and Love Sweet Love earning her multiple Canadian Folk Music awards (best English songwriter, best contemporary singer).
Her album Slightly Haunted, was a Billboard magazine Top 10 pick for the year, while Unravel was praised by All Music Guide as “sounding as if it’s been produced by Daniel Lanois in an Appalichian town” and “a diamond in the rough”.
Miles recently decided to record a double album of songs, entitled Black Flowers Vol.& 2, both new and old songs, in a simple fashion, accompanying her voice with either solo acoustic guitar or piano. This sparse presentation crystallizes the quality of Lynn’s songwriting – highlighting the melody and lyrics in a way that only great songs can be presented. You can hear Black Flowers on our Roots stream.
“Canadian songbird Lynn Miles sings lusciously on her fifth country-tinged, folk-pop album (Love Sweet Love). Smart lyrics abound as she expounds on love lost and gained, sketched with dark hues and rising tempos.” Billboard Magazine
