LANGHAM AND GILL

Lynn Langham and Doug Gill are two of the most respected names in the Nashville Songwriting community. Lynn is a Grammy winner for her song "Old Yellow Moon", title cut of the first Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell duet album. Doug was also recently Grammy nominated for "I Just Come Here For The Music", recorded by Don Williams and Alison Krauss. Other credits include, Wynonna, Tammy Wynette, The Marshall Tucker Band, Patty Loveless, Pam Tillis and the list goes on. In addition to being fine writers, Lynn and Doug are both accomplished musicians and performers. They have a magical chemistry onstage, and together they make powerful moving music that weaves through styles and influences seamlessly.

More ABOUT LYNN                                                                 

Lynn Langham makes music like southern smoke. With a buttery smooth sensuous voice and sure subtle musical sense all her own, she has forged a legacy of powerful moving music that speaks to the heart. Lynn's songs have been recorded by musical luminaries from every style, notably, Wynonna, Emmylou Harris and Rodney Crowell, Tricia Yearwood, Elizabeth Cook, and Carolyn Hester. Her song "Old Yellow Moon" (written with Hank DeVito) was the title cut of Harris and Crowell's Grammy winning duet album in 2014.  It was also named album of the year at the 2013 Americana Music Awards.  Lynn has shared the stage with legends like John Prine, Asleep At the Wheel, Larry Gatlin, Leon Redbone, and Cheech and Chong.  She has appeared as a musician on albums ranging from Johnny Cash to Emmylou Harris, Albert Lee, Todd Snyder and Richard Dobson, and she has influenced musicians everywhere she has gone. She even voiced the "Fuzz the Fob" character in the world of Teddy Ruxpin, the talking teddy bear that sold over 30 million cassette tapes world wide.

In a Lynn Langham song you will find a wide swath of wisdom, an open hearted love of life, a sweet, lingering touch, a little country, a little gospel, a little jazz. Always a teardrop and a smile.  At her shows you will be mesmerized. From the folk clubs of New York to the beer bars of Austin; from L.A. to Nashville, she leaves a trail of fans and devotees.  If you've ever seen her perform you will never forget it.

Harris was going over Hank DeVito and Lynn Langham’s “Old Yellow Moon” with Crowell for the first time, but their impromptu performance together was so naturally emotive that Ahern decided to build a track around it. “That’s a kitchen table recording. Brian later brought in Lynn to play the piano; she had a certain feel that only she could do to really honor the song and the reading we had given it. We added a few other things and it became the title track.” Harris pauses to consider this before declaring, “I love the way records get born!”
