South Indian by heritage, Lynn Jacob is a Melbourne-based vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, and this issue’s cover girl, borrows from Southeast Asian and Western musical palettes, creating melodic Gothic pop-folk fairytales.

    Lynn has strong ties to the West, having lived in Footscray on and off over the years and also as an active member of westside based songwriters’ group WestSong.

    She cut her teeth on live solo performance at open mics at the much loved Dancing Dog and local haunt the Night Heron. A trained jeweller, when Lynn is not creating her artistic projects, she works for a Not-For-Profit teaching financial education.

    New single, Arctic Dawn imagines a world where generations are born into darkness, and tales of the sun are told as myths by the fireplace. The ukulele is a surprisingly haunting instrument and when paired with the otherworldly melodies and harmonies, this lament takes you on an emotional journey into a warm darkness, underpinned by a thread of hope.

    Lynn is presenting her immersive, one woman show “Sensory” between 8 – 12th March, 2022 at the Fringe Common Rooms as part of the Melbourne Fringe Rebound Festival. It is a multisensory, Gothic pop-folk experience designed to create connection without touch.
