600 W. 6th St. Sioux Falls
In a few short years, folk, jazz, and blues songstress Jami Lynn has made her mark on the Midwest. Hailing from the Great Plains of eastern South Dakota, the singer/songwriter began performing folk and bluegrass music at the age of thirteen. It took little coaxing from her grandfather to make the transition from the audience to the stage, where old-time country, polka, and regional folk music reigned supreme. At the age of sixteen, Jami began accompanying herself on guitar and writing her own music. After high school, Jami Lynn attended the University of South Dakota majoring in Vocal Performance. It was during these years that she met up with members of Sioux Falls folk-rock band Snakebeard Jackson, and recorded her first album, Dreamer, as Jami Lynn & The Aquila Band.
“Fall Is A Good Time To Die” is the first album of Lynn’s comprised entirely of original songs, self-produced alongside her band, Dalton Coffey (dobro, mandolin) and Andrew Reinartz (bass). Lynn’s voice is reminiscent of Anaïs Mitchell’s, with a darker, wilder quality all her own, as if she were born to project her voice across the plains. With the power and dynamic of My Brightest Diamond, Lynn’s voice is complimented by her deceptively creative melodies. Jami is currently based out of Spearfish, SD.
