Country music singer-songwriter, Sandra Lynn released a new EP, titled FIGHT, yesterday on iTunes, Spotify, GooglePlay, and Amazon. The new release is Chapter One of a three-part series, to be released throughout 2018, and features four new tracks, including “Fight,” “Rest In Pieces,” the EP focus track “Somebody Kissed Me At A Bar,” and “From The Outside.”
FIGHT is a testament to how Lynn has grown as an artist as she reveals deeply felt emotions and puts them into the music. “These songs touch on the vulnerable and intimate details we ladies like to talk about behind closed doors with one another,” she says of FIGHT, which features contributions from hit songwriters such as Rachel Proctor, Shane Stevens, Matthew West, and Melissa Pierce, including her collaboration with Jake Scott (“From The Outside”). “The songs convey the push and pull in relationships, which take work; sometimes they work out and sometimes they don’t. I want listeners to feel that friction, but to also come away with a hopeful feeling that what’s meant to be will always work itself out. Fight for what you love, work for what you want, and don’t take relationships for granted.”
Taken together, the songs on FIGHT tell a story about a couple who are struggling to save their relationship (“Fight”), but eventually realize they must call it quits (“Rest In Pieces), though one isn’t so sure they’re over their former love when someone new tries to sweep them off their feet (“Somebody Kissed Me At A Bar”). The final song, “From The Outside,” delivers the larger message of Lynn’s story, which is that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side. “What might appear to be happy on the outside might, in fact, be broken on the inside,” she says. “I hope the takeaway is not to wish for someone else’s life because you never know what goes on behind closed doors.”
Lynn’s new song, “Somebody Kissed Me At A Bar” is set to receive support through Spotify, and the music video debuted exclusively yesterday via CMT.com and CMT’s 24/7 digital all-music channel, CMT Music. Click here to view the video.
FIGHT was recorded at Ocean Way Studios and is produced by Grammy award-winning producer/engineer, Ben Fowler (Eric Clapton, Michael McDonald, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Sara Evans, Maddie and Tae).
Back in 2017, in mixing tradition with her own contemporary flair, Lynn released “Hey California;” which debuted on Radio Disney. The video for the single aired on Great American Country (GAC), The Country Network, The Heartland Network, and on CMT Music.
Lynn currently splits her time between Los Angeles and Nashville, where she’s immersed herself among Music City’s creative community and has worked with some of Nashville’s most successful songwriters and producers including Rascal Flatts,’ Jay DeMarcus, Dave Brainard, Ross Copperman, Jeremy Spillman, Hall of Famers Gary Burr and Tom Schuyler, Tia Sillers, Victoria Banks, Paul Brandt, Mike Mobley, as well as ascending young songwriters Bobby Hamrick and Dave Pittenger. Lynn has also made a name for herself on the live circuit, opening for Brad Paisley, Kenny Chesney, Cole Swindell, Kenny Rogers, Jana Kramer, and Josh Thompson, as well as performing during CMA Fest, the KNE New Music Stage at Milwaukee’s Summerfest, and playing local Nashville venues, including 3rd and Lindsley and The Listening Room.
