"Morgan Lynsey's pure-toned voice & keen sense
of adventure & love bring a liveliness to the audience's ears."
Morgan Lynsey, originally from Virginia, has lived the life of an adventurous nomad, having called home to NYC, LA, and Nashville. Now establishing herself as a Richmond artist “The Gypsy” (nicknamed by RVA locals) is back. The soulful vocalist and songwriter is now part of a duo, Amity, partnered with the powerful pop singer/guitarist, Drew Dunbar. She is thrilled for what they are currently writing and recording.
Morgan was born with a deep love of music and began writing her own songs at age 8. The voice lessons she begged mom for paid off when she received a scholarship to attend a NYC conservatory. At AMDA, she studied music and acting. This gave her wings that carried her west to LA. But music is what stuck, as it was her first love and greatest passion. After writing and recording with pop producers in LA, and in her words “recording a lot of bad pop music”, Morgan decided to return to a sound true to her. Morgan released a pop-country song, “Gypsy Hearts” in 2017. The single is a fun, free-spirited story of adventures on the road. It glorifies simple living and is a reflection of the life she’s lived over the years, welcoming change and following her dreams.
Lynsey's next move was Nashville! In music city, her songs were well received. She had the opportunity to write and collaborate with many successful writers and musicians. Morgan developed her songwriting skills and recorded with some of the best in Nashville, including bandmates and producers of country superstars, Luke Combs and Lee Brice.
As much as Nashville felt like home, Morgan decided to make her home-base Richmond, VA. With it's growing music scene, RVA is a music hub with lots of opportunity and talented musicians, like Drew Dunbar, Morgan's duo bandmate. The two knew immediately after singing together that they had something special. The natural charisma between the two is striking, as if they've been singing together for years. Killer harmonies, fun hooks, and a contagious energy!
AMITY is all about bringing people together through the universal language of great music. It’s about connection. It happens when you set aside the cares of our world today and seize the beauty in the present moment. It sounds like the mix tape you played on that epic road trip with your best friend. It feels like the first crisp autumn night with your crew around the bonfire. And it tastes like that smoky Old Fashioned buzzing you to dance.
There is something magical that happens when these two sing together. Each song takes on a unique life of its own, building momentum and melting the core with stunning harmonies. Get ready for a journey, discovering AMITY instant hits that sound like classics. This modern day Johnny and June share life’s crazy ride through forever friendship, forbidden love, heartbreak blues, and fiery passion. Wherever you end up, one thing is certain, these two are electric together.
