Lynn Cannon – What’s Up!

Lynn Cannon was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1958, and has been playing the Piano since age 12. Lynn’s musical roots come from Gospel, which is where he was first introduced to both acoustic Piano and Hammond B-3 organ. Lynn’s Mother has always been a major musical influence through her involvement with Gospel music and Church Choirs.

Following College, Lynn joined an R&B/Pop music band in the early 1980s, which served as his first exposure live performing. Following years of playing shows in local clubs and special events, Lynn started recording original contemporary Jazz music during the fall of 1998, which has evolved into his debut CD, Smooth Sailing, followed by Walk In The Park in ‘2001.

Lynn’s musical style has been influenced by such jazz musical greats like Jeff Lorber, Fattburger, and Greg Karukas. His three jazz releases cover a spectrum of different grooves and moods for a variety of Jazz listeners, whether on a long relaxing drive, enjoying a picnic in a park, or just special occasions with friends or your special someone.

He is a father of three, and has a wonderful wife. He is an aspiring musician, and plans to release more music projects in the near future, as well as seek out prime opportunities to perform live at music venues catering to jazz music fans.

His newest album  What’s Up! is just released at CDBaby.
