Gretsch singer-songwriter Lynda Kay was born and raised in Dallas and now lives in Los Angeles. Known for her classic songwriting and her diverse contralto voice, she has been compared to such exceptional talents as Patsy Cline, Karen Carpenter, Roy Orbison and Dusty Springfield. Her double album “Black & Gold” features 20 original and cover songs emblematic of her genre-crossing style, from early '60s mid-century jazz and Bacharach pop to classic country and Memphis soul.
