Lynette Skynyrd is the world's one and only all-gyrl trybute to Lynyrd Skynyrd. This group of mega-talented female musicians express the unconquered spirit of Southern rock. Lynette captures the essence of Skynyrd, tapping into those halcyon days when a rock concert was a lifetime event. If the past is indeed a prologue to their musical journey, then Lynette Skynyrd is nothing less than timeless. With a badass rock-chick authority, these daisy duke divas turn a genre upside down and transport the Skynyrd classics into the modern era.
The band was founded in 2010 by vocalist Laurie Es, a lifelong Skynyrd fan. Laurie set out to create a tribute that would truly do justice to the genre-defining Southern Rock of the original band and the exceptional songwriting and musicianship that earned Lynyrd Skynyrd its rightful place in the pantheon of classic arena rock bands. With a powerful mid-range voice that makes her the perfect female counterpart to Ronnie Van Zant and a talented group of female musicians with established credibility, Lynette Skynyrd is a band unique unto themselves. One of the many aspects that sets these gyrls apart from other projects is that Lynette released a full-length album "Hot As A Fox In A Forest Fire" in May of 2013. The CD contains 11 tracks of Southern-Fried, chick-infused rock from the classic Ronnie Van Zant era of Skynyrd. Since it's release, "Hot As A Fox" has gone global, with sales and radio airplay worldwide.
Lynette Skynyrd has generated considerable interest from its very inception, building up a solid social media fanbase and online presence even before venturing out of its Southern California homeland. In fact, Lynyrd Skynyrd themselves had Lynette play the grand opening of their new restaurant, Lynyrd Skynyrd BBQ & Beer at The Excalibur in Las Vegas. Needless to say, if the real deal is requesting Lynette to play, imagine how actual Skynyrd fans react to an all-female version of the kings of southern rock. Well, the response is incredible. Both Skynyrd fans and girl-band enthusiasts love Lynette Skynyrd. With the niche of a female Skynyrd yet unfilled, Lynette can stride easily down the road laid out before them.
