It was 3AM one Southern California morning back in 2011 when Schilling first heard the captivating voice of Christy Lynn singing. The two felt an instantaneous creative spark and joined forces together in a band, and haven’t looked back since. After leaving California in 2015, packing their belongings and starting out on a one-way, cross-country road trip with no clear destination in mind, the duo landed in Asheville, an idyllic location with a rich musical history that’s nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. The two immediately got to work ingraining themselves in Asheville’s burgeoning, diverse music scene by playing shows all over town, all while writing songs that wound up materializing into their debut album, Sweetheart of the Radio.
Together, the Christy Lynn Band draws inspiration from all across the spectrum, from classic languid country and folk to classic rock. They’ve taken those influences and distilled them into their own unique sound that seamlessly fuse soulful alt-country music with a healthy dash of rock & roll. Their compelling frontwoman Christy Lynn possesses a singular, powerhouse voice and a knack for capturing the clever, kitschy lyrics of old country music. Ryan’s meticulous talents lie in his groovy guitar playing and his adept technical skill at capturing the rich texture of their music, all using analog recording equipment. In fact, the recording studio they used to record their first full-length album is actually built into the back of a 1987 Ford Econoline truck called the American Sound Truck that they built out and customized themselves, utilizing a melange of vintage recording gear that they’ve sought and acquired over the years.
Sweetheart of the Radio features Christy Lynn’s unparalleled vocals at the forefront, with Ryan Schilling on guitar, Kenan Hopkins on fiddle, Nate Pusateri on drums, Zack Page on bass and Jackson Dulaney on pedal steel. The rootsy 12-song record tells the fictional story of a radio darling who is beloved far and wide, a skyrocketing success masking a deep sadness. It’s an unsatisfying one-way relationship: the whole world loves her, and yet not one person truly does because they do not truly know her. The crux is that perhaps she doesn’t truly know herself. It’s a soulful country album that harkens back to the sound of its glory days and is sure to appeal to fans of true country and Americana, while simultaneously infusing it with a modern sound that’s distinctly their own.
