Lera Lynn

Though Lera Lynn has released two albums, including last year’s superbly sultry The Avenues, it’s her work on the HBO hit True Detective that has exposed her to a new legion of fans. In addition to co-writing songs for the show, like the haunting “My Least Favorite Life,” Lynn has made appearances as a shadowy bar singer—and inspired nearly as much interest in her catalog as the cultish whodunit itself (with much less confusion).
