06) Lynda Nelson

We welcome New Hampshire singer/songwriter Lynda Nelson to BKJ Publications. Lynda has been a fixture in the New Hampshire music scene for some time. Formerly a member if the band Canyon Run, she is now concentration on a solo career. Lynda's first solo album Forever in a Song was released in 2019. The album was recorded in Nashville, TN with a band featuring eight of Nashville's outstanding studio musicians providing the backgrounds for Lynda's warm alto vocals. The 11 songs on the album are written from life experience and are both uplifting and thought provoking.

BKJ is proud to bring to the public one of the songs from Lynd'as album. Momma Said is a happy, lighthearted, uptempo song reminding us of all the guidelines for living our lives which we get from our mothers. The published version arranged for a NH high school chorus and instrumental ensemble is scored for SATB chorus. The 4 1/2 minute song may be performed with either the piano accompaniment which is included in the piano/vocal part, or the full ensemble of Flute, 2 violins, viola, and a rhythm section of piano, guitar, ukulele, bass and drums. The chorus arrangement is set up to allow up to four vocal solos (one on each verse) or if desired each verse could be sung by one section of the chorus.

The piano/vocal score, as well as the full band score and parts are available from JW Pepper on 12/6/19. We hope to add more of Ms. Nelson's songs from her album in 2020.
