Artist History

 


Lynette Louise shares her journey of who she was before she became who she is.

Born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Lynette left school at 15, married and had two children before turning 20. By the time she was 29, Lynette had adopted four toddlers, all boys with varying degrees of autism. “Having been a foster parent,” says Lynette, “I couldn’t stand that the kids would be bounced from home to home. I had to keep them!” Along the way, she added two troubled teenage girls to the mix, one with learning disabilities, completing the family with eight children in all. The story of how these children not only survived but flourished is a testament to Lynette’s persistence, unconventional approaches, and steadfast love. It is also the subject of her one woman show 'Crazy To Sane' with its accompanying CD.

“Crazy to Sane” by Lynette Louise is an entertaining CD that is intended to raise awareness of autism. Through this CD, Lynette uses autobiographical vignettes with soft background chanting, and strong songs to bring attention to this mental health issue. This CD set includes a first CD of songs and spoken vignettes, and a second CD that only includes the songs of the first CD. Lynette is not afraid to tastefully use humor on the CD to help raise awareness of this serious mental health issue. Lynette introduces a number of humorous characters on the CD. The songs on the CD are a mix of adult rock tracks that include a professionally-mixed full sound, as well as more theatrically-styled humorous songs. The lyrics, whether spoken in the vignettes or sung on the musical tracks, are cleverly themed around autism and the possibility of turning a serious mental health issue into a positive life-changing experience. For example, the title track includes an emotional and screaming chorus that has an effective dynamic change from the rest of the track that will grab your attention. “Maniac Braniac” is one of our favorite tracks on the CD, with a catchy chorus and insightful, clever lyrics. It is a more mainstream-styled adult rock track, with an effective full rock band mix. Lynette’s emotional vocals are especially effective on this track. “Unfinished” is another noteworthy track, with nice electric guitar riffs above a powerful bass line, and a strong chorus. The music is especially tight on this track. Take some time out of your day to be entertained by this CD, and to learn about Lynette’s journey through life with autism.

  "Sing me a Song...please!" by Lynette Louise (Jazz Artist from California(CA))

RadioIndy is pleased to present Lynette Louise with a GrIndie Award for the CD "Sing me a Song...please!"

“Sing me a Song...please!” is truly an original album from singer/songwriter Lynette Louise that draws from both mainstream jazz and honky tonk country. Lynette's loungy vocal performance pairs nicely with either genre, and she takes full advantage of this with incredibly diverse and solid arrangements. Lynette is a renowned international autism expert, having taken a number of children with autism and other special needs under her wing and caring for them like family. This selfless life experience certainly glimmers forth in her songs. She is a great lyrical storyteller, as she sings about the importance of love, both toward God and children, and, as a listener, you hang onto every word. “Sing me a Song...please!” is well-recorded, and Lynette's lyrics pierce through the arrangements perfectly. “Sing Me a Song” is a jazzy and lyrical number with great yearning vocal delivery and a nice build-up. “Used to Listen” gives the listener a first taste of Lynette's honky tonk side with the incorporation of the violin, a pleasant group vocal, and great lyrics about prayer, love, and family. Though it seems an unconventional combination, Lynette Louise has put together ten inspiring tracks that draw from both jazz and honky tonk, highlighting her strong lyrical talent. Fans of either of these genres, check out this strong album from a good person.-Chris & the RadioIndy.com Review Team
