Critics rave about Resistor

. On Feb.15, 2017, the first single from the album, “Shape Shifter,” was featured on Bravo’s hit show Girlfriend’s Guide to Divorce.
Since the roll out of Resistor, Lynn has continued to release new songs. On Oct, 2016, “Image
” was premiered by WXPN's Bruce Warren for NPR
. The song was presented with the haunting new video that Warren called “dark” and “sultry.” “Image," Lynn says, "is a reflection on American culture, our infatuation with celebrity, infamy, shock value and drama. Each of us plays a role in the creation and proliferation of that dynamic and the success of toxic, vapid people and ideas, simply by allocating even the smallest amount of attention to them.
For the holidays, Amazon Music released Lera’s song, “Love One Another,” on their holiday playlist, "All Is Bright
" Lynn decided to donate aportion of her proceeds from the song to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee. “When I wrote the lyrics for 'Love One Another,' I was looking for a timeless and universal Holiday message. Now, for America, the message seems more ‘timely,’”says Lynn.

, coupled with a live performance video
with co-writer, Todd Lombardo. 2017 is off to a great start with “Lying in the Sun
