“Five Minutes With” Local Folk-Rock Artist KC Lynn

KC Lynn is a 22 year old singer/songwriter who was raised right here in Calgary, AB. KC got an early start in music, having begun to learn the piano before the age of 7, teaching herself guitar at age 11, and enrolling in singing lessons shortly afterwards. By age 12, KC had her first performances through Calgary talent shows, displaying her own written songs for crowds upwards of 500.

KC continued to perform in the Calgary community through both music theatre and open mics. Upon reaching University, KC pursued studies in music in Ontario at Wilfrid Laurier University, furthering her vocal technique with talented teachers through individual coaching, master classes, and vocal programs at Laurier’s Music Theatre Academy. In 2018, with some talented friends in Kitchener, KC began recording music and working on her debut album: an EP entitled All We Had. This upcoming album is a collection of self-written songs exploring friendships, relationships, family, and loss through a folk-rock lens. KC has released two singles from her EP, “Part of Me” and “Home”, both of which are now available on all streaming platforms.

Now back in her hometown of Calgary, KC continues to write music and is already planning for her next album. While she loves working on new music, her passion for the stage has never wavered, and she was proud to have had a role this past January in the Canadian premiere of The Boy From Oz with Front Row Centre Players. KC has also begun an Instagram Live Artist Collaboration show with musicians from across North America. This show aims to highlight the talent of fellow musicians and offer a platform to showcase their talents. And in any extra spare time, KC loves to cuddle up with her dog, Winter, eat ice cream, kickbox and write poetry.

Live Show Ritual:

I usually make sure I eat no less than 2 hours before the show. I also like to do my warm up exercises twice, once about an hour and a half before the show, and then again 20 minutes before. There is also usually lots of panic involved, so I like to take a few minutes to myself to remind myself to breathe!

Fish Creek for sure!
