Without the presence of a label, manager or agent, Lynn Carey Saylor has scored 3 major guitarist endorsement deals in the last several months due to her powerful combination of model-like camera friendly looks mixed with her high level playing, singing and songwriting abilities.
All words and music on 10 of 11 songs on her modern Rock/Pop CD "YOU LIKE IT CLEAN" are written entirely by her and she tackles such weighty subjects as racial tolerance (on her award winning song "IF WE BELIEVE" featuring BRIAN MAY of QUEEN) and drunk driving (on the emotional heavy rock ballad "I WASN'T A FRIEND"), but never seems to be preaching to you. Her songwriting style is one of thoughtful lyrics, expressive melodies, big dramatic chorus hooks, lush background harmonies and full bodied instrumentation, set off by modern production
Queen's Brian May also appears on the lone cover tune on "You Like It Clean", the 1984 smash hit for Pat Benatar, "WE BELONG." Lynn's version of the song boasts not only Brian May, but also the songwriters of the song, Eric Lowen and Dan Navarro. For those who know Pat Benatar's big ballad interpretation of the song, there will be some surprise as to Lynn's much more rocked up arrangement of the song, a departure that was designed to set it apart from Pat's version and also to reflect Lynn's style and showcase the rock guitar sound and style of guitar legend Brian May, who plays both lead and rhythm guitar on the song.
Lynn has an especially personal and emotional reason for having covered the song on her otherwise completely self-written album and that is to honor and feature "We Belong" co-writer Eric Lowen, who has been stricken with the incurable fatal disease ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). It is Lynn's hope that she can bring awareness to his terrible illness through her recording of this classic song and by including Lowen on not only the recording, but also a video where he is featured singing with Lynn, which can be viewed at http://Lynncareysaylor.com/WeBelongVideo.htm
In addition to Brian May and the writers of "We Belong", there are other musicians of note appearing on Lynn's record. They include STACY JONES (drums) and JAMIE ARENTZEN (guitar), frontman and guitarist respectively for popular rock band "American Hi-Fi" (best known for their 2002 hit single "Flavor Of The Weak"), CHRIS JOHNSON, programmer of the smash hit single for Evanescence, "Bring Me To Life", FRANK GRYNER, producer/programmer to many well-known artists such as Tommy Lee and Rob Zombie, DANNY MIRANDA, formerly the long time touring bassist of Blue Oyster Cult and recent tour bassist for Queen + Paul Rodgers, SASHA KRIVTSOV, former touring bassist for such artists as Vanessa Carlton and Billy Idol and a member of the house band of the CBS reality series "Rockstar Supernova", and drummer MARK SCHULMAN, who has toured or recorded with the likes of Cher, Foreigner, Pink, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow and many other superstar artists
The record was produced by SKIP SAYLOR and mixed by PAUL DAVID HAGER, who has mixed tracks for Pink, Avril Lavigne, The Donnas and many other well-known artists
Lynn Carey Saylor is endorsed by world famous string manufacturer The Dean Markley Company, is the primary endorsement artist of SPG Guitars who has featured Lynn in multiple magazine advertisements in 2007 and she is also the first FEMALE endorsed by Goodsell Amps, who endorses such well-known guitarists as Gilby Clarke (of former Guns n' Roses and Rockstar Supernova fame), Butch Walker (Epic artist and noted producer/songwriter for artists such as Pink, Avril Lavigne, American Hi-Fi and others) and Country superstar, Vince Gill
