SABS 7th Birthday Salute for July 21st from Makayla Lynn

Posted: July 21, 2017

Will you look at that incredible girl!

So so happy to get a #SABS7 Birthday Salute from wonderfully talented, Nova Scotia born, award winning singer/songwriter - Makayla Lynn.

Enter her name and you'll be eligible to WIN a signed CD copy of ON A DARE AND A PRAYER by Makayla Lynn as the daily prize for July 14th, 2017 (click on the picture to read more about the album) and qualify for our HEAVENLY STAY grand prize draw.

We had the great pleasure of interviewing Miss Makayla Lynn for the first time back in 2013, during the 30th Annual East Coast Music Week in Halifax, NS.  She was only 11 then, but had already written a bunch of songs and performed on stage with Juno Winner Serena Ryder.  She was poised, and well spoken, and - heeding the advice of her grandmother - she was "following her dreams".

Since then Makayla has written hundreds of songs written, performed at countless concerts and festivals, become a Taylor Guitars partnered artist and released two full length CD's, the second of which, ON A DARE AND A PRAYER, dropped in the spring - boasting 11 artist originals. You'll also notice Makayla enjoys a co-producing credit on the album. Wow, right?!

We put her on SABStv's ONES TO WATCH List in 2015 and Makayla Lynn has gone above and beyond - giving us a ton of things to watch and enjoy - including here brand new video - JOYRIDE!

As you might imagine - Makayla's touring schedule for the summer has been non-stop - and continues with a show TODAY at Grand Parade Square in Halifax, NS and TOMORROW at the Hantsport Music Festival in Hantsport, Nova Scotia this weekend (for a complete schedule of tour dates click here).

Oh and how's this for awesome?! Next week Makayla will return for her third time to perform at Nashville's famed Bluebird Cafe!!! So cool.

But perhaps the coolest of all - with a determination to begin a full time music career as soon as possible, Makayla's school year was made up of almost double the regular 10th grade course load including grades 10, 11 and 12 courses in public school, and correspondence courses from home, and in spite of missing almost half the school year with touring and recording in Nashville - she still pulled in a 96% average!!! That's unbelievable.

We're so lucky to have been able to follow and celebrate this gifted young artist over the years and we're grateful for all the time she's made to talk and share her story here on SEA AND BE SCENE - be sure to check out those links below!  A special shout out to Makayla's mom Jennifer who's been our go-to from the get-go and who keeps every plate spinning behind the scenes.  It's easy to see where Makayla gets her drive and worth ethic. Cheers to both of you amazing ladies!!!

Thank you so much for this sweet #SABS7 Birthday Salute - Makayla Lynn! You're simply the best!!! SABS
