StarCoach2016: Amber Lynn
Before I get into today's band highlight, just a note, our Indiegogo campaign is in its final days! Five days, to be exact. This is your last chance to pre-order a copy of my upcoming EP, request a postcard from the road, book us for a house party, and help us make it up the coast and back home! Check it out: https://igg.me/at/starcoach2016/x/13730743
Now, for the fun part of the post...It is with great pleasure that I introduce our expressive, soulful and groovy bassist, Amber!

When and why did you start playing your instrument?
What other bands/groups/ensembles are you a part of?

Have you been on tour before?
-I have not.
Name one thing you have to take on the road with you?
Are you more Stardust or Stagecoach?
-I'd say I'm more Stagecoach and less Stardust-y. [Breaks out in a Stagecoach-inspired shuffle.]
Would you have survived a cross country trip in a stagecoach?
-Likely...Not likely...Maybe. I don't know, I haven't done it yet!
Given the opportunity, would you leave Earth? The solar system? The galaxy?
-[Earth?] Oh, man...I kind of would, because I see myself as a lone ranger. [Solar System?] Yeah, why not? [Galaxy?] Yeah, and be well-traveled if I have the opportunity.
What are you most looking forward to on this tour?
- I'm looking forward to just being together with everybody, creating music and sharing it with people, instead of my day-to-day job. And traveling! Going places! Getting out of California!
