Amy Lynn & The Gunshow is a seven-piece machine that blows glitter all over the traditional memphis-motown soul/rock style. At the controls is Amy Lynn, a vocal powerhouse whose unique flair of quirky, down-to-earth humor countervails against the serious musicianship of The Gunshow’s team of bari sax, tenor sax, trumpet, keys, bass, and drums. Both together and apart, members of The Gunshow draw on a range of experience playing for acts such as Roberta Flack, Spoon, Bette Midler, Red Baraat, St. Vincent, The National, Yo La Tengo, Loser's Lounge, Duffy, Antibalas, and the Radio City Orchestra.
About the record:
The Gunshow joined forces with multi-platinum-selling record producer, Steve Greenwell (of Joss Stone, Diane Birch,) to record their first full length album. For four days they recorded at The Clubhouse in Rhinebeck, NY run by Paul Antonell (Dr. John, Natalie Merchant, Joe Lovano). Just recently released, the album is already receiving glowing reviews from crictics and fans:
"Drink my wine/ sleep in my bed/ funny how I kinda want you dead" coos Amy Lynn on the title track from her debut release Don’t Trip on the Glitter. If you’re thinking that doesn’t sound like typical pop song fodder, lucky for us all, you couldn't be more right. - Bianca Sunshine
"Amy Lynn & the (7-piece) Gunshow’s debut album, Don’t Trip On The Glitter, is a soulful, sassy, Motown/soul inspired horn filled journey back in time. Well, maybe not really back in time… but definitely with an appreciation looking backward. It’s hard to put a time period on this type of music, as the explosive, passionate presence of Amy Lynn’s vocals blend with the multi-dimensional musicality that make up the Gunshow, to create a timelessness that really transcends modern music. “I don’t want to fit (or) live in a certain category. Our goal is to just make music that people can relate to and feel good about,” she says in an interview with USA Today." - Radioinfo.com
