Interview

Something More, Lynn Harrison’s sixth album was produced by Noah Zacharin and Douglas September. A wonderful storyteller with a fine turn of phrase, the new album features 12 thoughtful and reflective songs about life, love and the power of the human spirit. It’s a beautiful album – a joy from beginning to end. As befits the production team behind the project, this album has wonderful feel to it, and includes some excellent players – Noah Zacharin on electric guitar, Douglas September on lap steel, George Koller on bowed bass, Ian de Souza on electric bass and Adam Warner on drums and percussion with cameos from Ed Michael Roth on a bouncy accordion, Denis Keldie on Hammond organ and Alexander Brown on trumpet.

Lynn Harrison is also an ordained Unitarian Universalist (UU) minister currently serving at First Unitarian Congregation of Toronto. She’s also the creator and host of The Bridge, a themed open stage that blends music and spirituality in an innovative and inclusive way. In all paths of her work, Harrison presents an inspirational message of love, hope and justice.
