"Finally, this is a songwriter who dares to be different by daring to be normal."
"The most extraordinary thing about the songs on Lynn Harrison''s CD, "Learning Curve," is the fact that they are so ordinary. This in no way should be considered an insult, Harrison is truly able to capture the moments in the lives of ordinary people and bring them to life. Whereas so many song writers craft tales of exceptional circumstances that, while engrossing and entertaining, are completely beyond the scope of experience of the average listener, Lynn Harrison does not bother with creating art for art''s sake, she''s content to craft gentle and moving tales that dare to be sensitive and honest about every day life.
Who can''t relate to songs like "I''ve been busy," and "1st day of school," which perfectly captures the pride a mother feels on this magical day in a child''s life "I will wave goodbye a baby/ I will welcome home a friend."
Another pleasant surprise about "Learning Curve," is that it is absolutely brimming with positivity and optimism. There are no sad tales of love gone wrong, instead, a portrait of someone who seems genuinely happy and willing to share that feeling. The opening track, "When I Walk (I Run)," shows that Harrison is able to create an upbeat and effective melody that suits the writer''s attitude towards life "Used to find me standing round/ Used to spin my wheels/ Now I walk and I know/ I''m getting somewhere/ And I like how it feels." Lynn Harrison is a welcome change from the songs of pain and sorrow all too common amongst contemporary female singer/songwriters. Finally, this is a songwriter who dares to be different by daring to be normal."
