At first glance, nothing grows in the desert, but that’s far from the truth. As Lyn takes on Phoenix, an oasis flourishes: greenery hems the stage from edge to edge, streetlights bask the instruments in warm hues, a flowered banner with “LYN LAPID” glows at centerpoint.
As the bass line of “Still Into You” reverberates through the brick walls, the crowd’s excitement spills backstage into the green room, where our team assembled equipment. We were greeted by none other than Stephanie Poetri and Lyn’s band, who graciously shared the intimate space with us.
We caught glimpses of the life Lyn has been living on the road: a request for water, the arrival of food (routine mealtimes were obsolete), and zero time to waste.
Lyn floated into the room once her meet and greet came to a close–a composition of earth-toned elegance and organic softness. Fluffy dark hair, multi-colored glitter atop her eyelids, a vanilla crochet top paired with a green dress, white stompers clad upon her feet. A brown oversized varsity jacket hung loosely from her shoulders. Doors close, we begin.

To Love in the 21st Century– It’s really hard to be young in this generation, and being in the dating world sucks.
I am my biggest critic. There are so many mental things that I struggle with as an artist, such as imposter syndrome and thinking if this is all worth it.
