Gretsch singer-songwriter Lynda Kay was born and raised in Dallas, Texas and lives in Los Angeles. She is known for her classic songwriting and her diverse contralto voice and has been compared to such exceptional talents as Patsy Cline, Karen Carpenter, Roy Orbison, and Dusty Springfield. Lynda Kay's new double album Black & Gold features 20 original and cover songs emblematic of her genre-crossing style which includes early 60's mid-century jazz and Bacharach pop to Classic Country and Memphis-soul. The first single is a Willie Nelson-style ballad Lynda Kay wrote and recorded with the late great Lemmy Kilmiste of Motörhead and Rolling Stone called it "A rare heart-on-sleeve love song". Songs from Black & Gold are currently featured in the Golden-Globe Award Winning series Goliath on Amazon Prime as she Co-Stars as herself in five of the eight Episodes with the Star Billy Bob Thornton. A bit of interesting history, Thornton and Kay recorded a duet together for her Dream My Darling album in 2009. Prior to her casting in Goliath, Lynda Kay appeared as herself on FX's Emmy Award Winning series Justified.
