Whether it’s her take on a Stevie Nicks favorite or one of her own original tunes, Brandy Lyn has a natural knack for finding the sweet spot and bringing it home. She's been honored in several singing and songwriting contests including numerous awards with the Portland Songwriters Association, a finalist of the Fox12 Gimme the Mic competition, Garageband.com’s Track of the Day, Weekly Award’s Best Female Vocalist, a finalist on AOL’s OurStage.com and chosen to open for Grace Potter and the Nocturnals . Brandy Lyn still pays the bills fronting cover bands and playing solo acoustic sets. In the end, her love always comes back to playing original music. While for now she’s content with dreaming up new music and playing for local crowds, the horizon looms large for this SW Washington star.
