Amy Rice

Minnesota musician, Lynndelle, known for her rock fiddling, singing  and songwriting just released her debut album Gathering Flowers in April. The music comes in part from her struggle with breast cancer, and the album dropped just as the pandemic was ramping up in Minnesota. Then, the protests happened around her in the Twin Cities. The music of Gathering Flowers provides an uplifting experience in the midst of life's many challenges. Find out more about Lynndelle at her web site and on social media.
