Exclusive: Listen to Jami Lynn’s Breezy New Song, “The North Wind”

Jami LynnFor a song about a cold breeze, Jami Lynn’s “The North Wind” is a surprisingly warm tune, with Lynn’s inviting vocals and her band’s pleasant folk backing providing a comforting environment. Indeed, Lynn herself says, of the song, “For me, this song is less about the little story it contains and more about the feeling of comfort and warmth it conveys in the empty spaces between the guitar and vocals.”

More than just a folk singer, Lynn is a folklorist herself, having left her classical voice studies to “dig around in museums, archives, churches, and personal collections around South Dakota,” her home state, in order to collect the songs that made up her previous album, Sodbusters. Her new album, Fall is a Good Time to Die, follows in that same Great Plains spirit while containing songs that she penned herself, including “The North Wind.”

Fall is a Good Time to Die is available now and Lynn and her band—Dalton Coffey (dobro, mandolin) and Andrew Reinartz (bass)—will be touring throughout the Dakotas and Upper Midwest this summer. Further information can by found at Jami Lynn’s website and Facebook page. Listen to “The North Wind” below:
