Did Nashville Indie Rocker Rich Lynch Predict These Times in Song? Looks to Post Pandemic Landscape to Make His Mark in Music City.

Special for MusicCityNashville.net

Indie rocker Rich Lynch moved to Nashville, Tennessee in the fall of 2015 in the hopes of making his mark on Music City. After recording over a dozen new songs in the musically revered region he's more ready than ever to make that happen. Could it be that a post Covid-19 world will now be more open to his unique form of observational rock that has proven to be just a little prophetic as the calendar turned over into this mystifying year known as 2020?

Consider the timely "All Rights Reversed" recorded in 2015 with help from Gold Record winning recording artist and producer Steve Brown (Trixter/Def Leppard). This bombastic six-minute anthem predicts a future world that has taken an Orwellian turn for the worse complete with surveillance drones and a noticeable loss of liberty. Fast forward to the worldwide lockdown and many global citizens are concerned that local and larger governments have overstepped their bounds by removing liberty, freedom and opportunity all over the planet - at least for now.

Many observers are reporting that the solution to our current situation lies in the formulation of a life saving vaccine - potentially loaded with RFID microchips and who knows what else. The emerging idea of "tracking and tracing" seems somewhat bizarre even as it takes its place in the lexicon of the "New Normal". Lynch wrote a song of the same name in 2002 that never made it to tape. However, he is now working on the follow-up in Nashville.

"Now it's the New, New Normal," cited Lynch about the track that he is scheduling studio time for next month in Mid-Tenn. "We had our first new normal in the early 2000's so it was just a matter of updating the lyrics a bit."

The current descending dystopia has many students of prophecy wondering if the world is headed to the end times era as predicted in the Book of Revelation where tracking, tracing and a cashless society seems to be on deck for the residents of Earth.

"This is my answer song to Iron Maiden's 'Number Of The Beast'," stated Lynch when asked about his 2019 release titled "Don't Take The Sixes" before adding, "Rather than scaring my listeners I tried to conjure up the voice of the figure who warns against taking the mysterious number made famous in the last book of the Bible and the Omen movies."

Staying within the fringes Lynch reports that he also isn't against writing about conspiracy theories like the New World Order or the peculiar lines left in the sky by high-flying jets. Both of these topics are handled on the tracks "Patriot Radio" with its warning against returning tyranny and "Ode To The Chemtrail Pilots" that tries to point out the obvious to the oblivious. Together the pair represent two of the strongest songs released yet by the Nashville via New Jersey musician.

"All I want is a receipt when I vote," Lynch implores on his most recent single "Wake Up" which calls for an exhaustive overhaul of the American political system. "But, all I'm hearing in the midst of the Corona crisis is a call for mail in voting that seems to me to be one of the most least dependable ways to handle the upcoming monumental election."

It' a good feeling to know that even in the midst of widespread societal upheaval that some things don't change. Rockin' Rich Lynch promises to keep making his thought-provoking music that points out and possibly even predicts the times. In terms of what emerges as the "new normal" as far as the music industry is concerned Lynch feels that perhaps the playing field has been level just a bit. He just wants to be a part of it.
