Lyndol Descant is a composer, singer and pianist with a musical style that is powerfully alive and eclectic. Her music is focused and innovative. Her voice, reflecting her travels around the word, merges jazz alto vocals with rock, and touches of folk. Her refined piano skills express raw emotion and groovy rhythm, especially in her improvisation. Her compositions stand outside of any one genre, expressing her truth fearlessly. She released her 3rd CD of original compositions January 3rd, 2018, entitled All Love.
Lyndol was born and raised in Houston, Texas. She studied classical piano and choral voice thru her teens. But she did not uncover her passion for the arts till she was in her early 20's. Inspired by her travels in France, exposure to live musical improvisation, and the 90's Austin culture 'keeping it weird', her creativity came bursting through in a variety of art forms. In addition to music, she began studying photography, painting and writing. As a lifelong mystic, she discovered the power of creativity to unleash more peace and love upon this world. And her mission became clear.
Lyndol then spent four years formally studying jazz piano and composition at the American School of Modern Music
in Paris, France during which time she also privately studied voice with Keri Chryst of the Jazz Vocal Academy. She also studied at McGill in Montreal with Kenny Bibase and Vincent
Stephen Ong. Since, she has been teaching privately and on staff at the Brooklyn Conservatory. Her passion for all forms of creative expression remains active, but music is her main focus and love of her life. She continues to create and perform prolifically in the NYC Music
Scene. All the while, she is soaking up the renaissance of art and music in Brooklyn, her home base for now.
An eclectic mix of emotions, mad skill, connection to nature, and creativity. Largely piano based, with sincere vocals, it is a self produced recording straight from the heart of Brooklyn. All Love contains 9 original songs that explore philosophical, personal and metaphysical quagmires surrounding the universal subject of LOVE.
