Terry Lynn

Terry Lynn comes to Last Gang by way of Waterhouse - an impoverished area of Kingston, Jamaica. Her sound is as penetrating as her message, both unrelenting in their break from the status quo, and demand for change. Daft Punk meets Marley meets Malcolm X - Terry's revolution remains one of optimism while depicted with powerful imagery uncovering the serious and often dark picture of corruption, violence, and poverty that makes up day to day life on the 'other' side of Jamaica.
