Rebecca Lynne aka R. Lyn is not afraid. The Boston born R&B singer and songwriter reflects on her life and everything in between through her music. It’s the honesty in her lyrics that create a sound and vibe that are undeniable.
R. Lyn was raised by her mother, with no knowledge of her biological father. She faced several struggles throughout her life but always turned to music for healing. Her musical influences include Aaliyah, Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Etta James, Amy Winehouse, Jhene Aiko, Kehlani and Jazmine Sullivan. She started singing and writing her pain away. She participated in several talent shows throughout high school and sung the national anthem all across Massachusetts, venues including local high schools, UMass Lowell, UMass Amherst, Harvard, and TD Garden.
Rebecca was one of the few in her family to attend College and leave Massachusetts. At age 18, she packed her bags and headed to Philadelphia to attend Temple University. This was where she found herself on a personal and musical level. Rebecca ended up getting pregnant her senior year of college and gave birth to her son Royal. Royal brought music back into her life. She sang to him every day and night, and once he got old enough, she knew she had to attempt to do music professionally.
Beginning in the summer of 2016, Rebecca really dug into her talents. On top of being a single mother, homeowner, and working full time as a Sr. IT Consultant in the Pharmaceutical industry, she would stay up all hours of the night writing and began recording. After creating a buzz from the short catalog she had created in a few months, R. Lyn was chosen by Philadelphia’s AMP 96.5 Radio as one of the best local artists in Philadelphia. Shortly after this as well, she opened for Tory Lanez, Ginuwine, Mya and Ashanti. She is currently working on her debut album, “She’s Not Afraid”, which is guaranteed to make an impact and resonate with all genres based on her unique voice and stories.
