Musician to perform at Good Omens

A singer-songwriter will include Summerland as a stop in an upcoming tour.

This Friday,  June 7, Good Omens Coffeehouse on Kelly Ave is proud to present acoustic singer-songwriter Lynn Jackson who is touring in support of her sixth studio album. Seating is limited.  This is a licensed event.  250-494-3200

An authenticity runs through Canadian singer-songwriter Jackson’s music that reflects a deep commitment to telling stories that ring true with listeners.   Combine this with her gentle voice, rich instrumentation and sweet melodies and you get a sound that is roots-Americana with a hint of folk-pop.

On her sixth studio album, “Down in the Dust” (Busted Flat Records, 2012,) Jackson takes her cues from Lucinda Williams, Ani Difranco and Tom Waits, using her ‘whiskey and honey’ voice to mix her timeless melodies while spinning yarns about love, loss and everyday characters.

Her music has drawn comparisons to Alison Krauss, Shelby Lynne and Kathleen Edwards.

As audiences warm to her soulful storytelling style, Jackson is solidifying her place as one of the most original and compelling voices on the Canadian folk music scene.
