A performer since childhood, Lynn Drury’s first accolade was at the age of five. She won a 4-H pole-bending competition in her native Mississippi. Though her rodeo career didn’t follow her into adulthood, she was primed and ready for the spotlight by the time she first picked up a guitar nearly twenty years later.
Born in Yazoo City, MS and raised in Carriere, MS, Drury relocated to New Orleans, LA in the mid-nineties and performed her unique style of roots rock on most of the stages in the city. Over the past two decades, that meticulously cultivated style – NOLAmericana® – has brought Drury’s original music to stages all over the world. At once personal with a voice distinct, this is definitive New Orleans Americana created in a city that moves to its own groove.
Drury’s impressive catalogue includes “Crossing Frequencies” (2001), “Blackberry Winter” (2002 with Bad Mayo), “Spun” (2003 with Bad Mayo), “All You Need” (2006), “Dal Vivo (2009), “Sugar on the Floor “ (2011), “Come to My House” (2014), and 2017’s critically acclaimed “Rise of the Fall.” She has earned multiple nominations and awards from New Orleans’ most prominent publications.
“Rise of the Fall” showcases Drury’s “exponential growth as a songwriter” and was hailed as “another breakthrough” by Offbeat’s John Swenson.
The new single "Good" is out now! It features Ric Robertson on fiddle, Rene Coman on Bass, Chris Pylant on Drums. New album out in Fall 2021!

“Throughout, Drury conveys the feelings of a strong, independent woman who refuses to be thrown out of the saddle, but at the same time, she has warmth that is stirring and inviting. It is this combination of softness and strength that makes Drury’s music intriguing and beautiful.” - Ruby Masters
