bollywood city lights
A tale of leaving behind all that’s fake to reach fulfilment in a world of dreams come true.
"...When the world is upside down
And you feel you’re gonna drown
There must be a light house
A silver line in the sky
Just keep one eye open..."

Following the release of "Mother Earth", featuring 2 tracks of a slightly different kind, my energy is focused on the production of an EP containing songs, which are back to good old Lynx-way. Updates to come!
Wow...already 20 years have passed: my very first online presence in its glorius, yet tasteful simplicity ;-)
Following two 'not-so-public' releases: Mother Earth. a single containing 2 brand-new tracks. I've departed my comfort-zone a little with these two songs, and they're unlike most of my previous material...but it had to be ;-)
As far as the *secret* releases are concerned:
- Wordless: originally released in 2015, remixed
- Suzie: two songs dating back to 2003, which have never seen the light of day in this form.
All available via the usual channels.
Not my latest, but the subject hasn't lost its relevance...unfortunately... Let's hope some unnamed dimwit doesn't get the brilliant idea to do the unthinkable...
And hello 2022...

A difficult year for all of us in the music business comes to an end... May 2022 bring better times! All the best for the new year :-)

A short hello...
Starting to feel the butterflies in my tummy... ;-)
Here a little teaser in anticipation of the March 3rd release of my demo-compilation...
It's been about 20 years...
I'm looking forward to this very special release! On March 3rd 2021, "bryn_lynx_demos_1999-2002", a compilation of songs, which at least originally was never intended for a wider public, will finally see the light of day.
For way too long, all this material has been gathering dust in some forgotten drawer... Recordings from a time when I just 'let out what had to come out'...passionately so, even though I didn't have much technical know-how back then.
My late brother Reto, who left us in 2006, was very fond of these Songs, hence I decided to release them 'in memoriam' on his birthday.
Despite the demo-character of these recordings, I'm convinced they're sound and bring across their message, so during the last year, they've been meticulously restored and mastered to give them a new lease of life and make them shine. All that while maintaining the original charm.

This compilation, containing a lot of unreleased material, will finally see the light of day come September.
All those tracks are currently in the process of being re-mastered at k-zound music production, and the results are truly remarkable. Enjoy & keep safe!
All the best to you all :-)

Remembering the good old days... LYNX at 'Lakesideopenair' / Schlatt (CH), July 29th 2006!
Have a great summer!
Following a really cool gig with Hipnoise in Zurich/Kloten, the well deserved summer break is finally here! But that's not quite the whole story... ;-) (Drum roll) Have a look at this little beauty! It's been a long time I've been looking forward to this, and now it has finally arrived! One of the finest Amps ever built! Thank you Paco Casanova from casanovasolutions! The good times have just begun!
Oh, and in line with this Wooly's serial number, which happens to be 007, Paco went above and beyond his call of duty, and even grafted flame throwers, ejection seats and a rocket engine... ;-)
2019 will bring the release of a great many songs, which really should have seen the light of day a long time ago...
It's been (drum roll) 20 years now, since I abandoned my old Fostex x-26 multitracker in favour of my first self-built Digital Audio Workstation.
The recording of the 1999 demo track 'worship' marks my first foray into the world of PC-based music production, and I am tremendously happy to announce, that this very track and many more of my early works will finally get their spot in the limelight!
An incredible trip down memory lane for me, and a nice glimpse into the becoming of Lynx for all my friends & fans out there.
"bryn lynx - demos (1999-2002)" coming soon!
Stay tuned - sign up for the lynxmusic-Newsletter!

- The Hipnoise gig in June, as a somewhat lateral entrant ;-)... This one shall be repeated in 2019.
- Then there's of course Crazy Diamond...I've lost count...
- Some great shows in the Rigiblick Theater with Daniel Rohr & Crazy Diamond...
- The new LYNX-Website going live (thank you Kolja Zeidler!)...
