Lynz, 19, is an American singer-songwriter and record producer. She’s originally from Buffalo New York. Inspired by Owl City, she began to produce and record music in her bedroom during high school and played her first show one day after learning a song on guitar at age 12. She says a teacher in high school asked where she’d learn skills post-graduation and she said YouTube. He baffled, “so you’re going to go to “YouTube university..?”. Developing these skills landed her a full scholarship to the GRAMMY Foundation’s 10-day music camp called GRAMMY camp for audio engineering. Hosted at USC in Los Angeles, Lynz met people from all over the world who also make music, including those in Los Angeles. Previously she had made her closest friends by releasing music online. She recently completed courses at Cre8 Music Academy in music production and currently is working on new music and with other artists. She currently resides in Los Angeles.
