Lynne Chwyl

Lynne began performing professionally with live blues bands only 6 years ago. She was a member of local Edmonton bands Bluesface, Insomnia, Forty Below, and The Collective R&B, as well as a member of the Calgary band, Gunn.

She enjoyed rapid local success, performing at both the Beaumont Blues Festival and at the Calgary International Blues Festival and by personal invitation in Calgary at the Kelly Jay (Crowbar) benefit and the Amos Garrett 2013 flood relief benefit. She has also enjoyed performing as a guest with notables such as Bruce Conte (Tower of Power), MonkeyJunk, Studebaker John, Russell Jackson, Rusty Reed, Arsen Shomakhov, Dave Babcock, Tim Williams, and Mike Clark, as well as gigging in many venues throughout Alberta.

She is a popular returning performer at the annual Edmonton Women of Song breast cancer benefit, and has recorded a track on the 2016 Edmonton Women of Song compilation CD.

Her film credits include a small role as the legion singer in the Corkscrew Production of the CBC special “Balletlujah” featuring kd Lang.

Lynne’s national anthem credits include the first ever anthem singer for not only the Beaumont Chiefs Junior B Hockey club, but also as the Capital Junior Hockey League’s first league anthem singer, and she has performed the national anthem at the Winspear to open the Alberta Body Building Championships, and repeat performances for the Alberta Saskatchewan Toastmasters Convention in Edmonton.

Lynne is currently co-writing material for her own debut CD with plans to eventually record.
