High Tide showcases Drury’s songwriting talents and is further proof that she is in prime form and far from ready to be put out to pasture. Captivating, edgy and sweet, her distinct voice and melodies get in your head and under your skin – sultry, hot and funky, they stick to you and with you like a long night out on the town. There’s a little bit of something for everyone in her catchy tunes.



Produced by Papa Mali (Ruthie Foster), the album was recorded over three days last year at Dockside Studio in Maurice, Louisiana and features 11 new songs. High Tide’s tunes, in Drury’s inimitable fashion, run the gamut from plaintive to soul-searching and sexy and some thunderous Rock and Roll too.

High Tide showcases Drury’s songwriting talents and is further proof that she is in prime form and far from ready to be put out to pasture. Lynn has scheduled a record release party at the Maple Leaf in New Orleans April 13th, and performances at New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and French Quarter Fest. The album’s recording was funded in part by a grant from the Threadhead Cultural Foundation.
For more than two decades Lynn Drury has honed her singing and songwriting skills in New Orleans. Steeped in Mississippi country and rooted in the groove, Lynn’s self-penned style “NOLAmericana” is New Orleans Americana, created in a town that moves to its own groove.  Captivating, edgy and sweet, her distinct voice and melodies get in your head and under your skin – sultry, hot and funky, they stick to you and with you like a long night out on the town. There’s a little bit of something for everyone in her catchy tunes.
Lynn Drury has been performing, in one arena or another, her entire life. At the ripe old age of five she won a 4-H state competition in Mississippi in pole bending. If you don’t know what pole bending is, it’s a little like barrel racing, Lynn says. That’s horse talk. In a word, rodeos. Once you know that much about Lynn, you understand her approach.
She picked up the guitar at 26, went at it like a pro, and she’s never stopped working. Her inspiration is her environment and since the late nineties, that environment has been New Orleans. The transition for the Yazoo City-born Drury was smooth. She says jasmine smells like honeysuckle, and you believe her. Sultry, sweet songs turn funky, and it’s all in the same neighborhood.
