Lyndol Descant is a composer, singer and pianist with a unique and uplifting musical style reflecting her travels around the world. She merges jazz alto vocals with rock, and touches of folk. Her refined piano skills still express raw emotion, especially in her improvisation. Her compositions stand outside of any one genre, expressing her truth fearlessly.
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 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 has since been in active in the NYC music scene, calling Brooklyn here home base. She currently teaches private piano and voice lessons at the Brooklyn Conservatory, Performs solo and with her Trio at exclusive Private Events, as well as the coolest venues.
She also composes for Gorilla with A Pen and other Music libraries, and somehow still has the time to play honkey tonk keys, as well as synth in some of the freshest bands on the Brooklyn Music scene.
She is in love with her life, and so very thankful everyday for music and all the wonderful musicians and fans she gets to meet.
