Lyn Starr

Lyn Starr is a young multi-talented performing artist from Pittsburgh, PA. He began his journey in music at 10 years old when he started singing jazz at the Afro-American Music Institute in Homewood and then moved toward classical music once he started to attend Rogers CAPA Middle School.

At about 15, inspired by the multifaceted career of Donald Glover, Lyn fell in love with being a rapper. He started creating original songs, and at 17 he started his own production company, High Five Productions, because he wanted a platform to perform and release his music. All the while, he continued to hone his vocal skills by completing his primary schooling at CAPA High School and attending Seton Hill University as a vocal performance major, graduating in 2018. His diverse background has provided a platform to perform operas, musicals, solo recitals, solo Hip Hop shows, and more. Now, Lyn has broadened his focus toward other genres like R&B, Soul, and Pop music. Lyn learned that his years as a rapper have improved his writing abilities and his classical training has polished his voice. With that, he’s found that other genres of music flow easily to him which continuously gives him a fresh experience on his lifelong musical journey. Lyn has released five mixtapes and five EPs to date, along with several singles and other music projects. Tierra, released in December 2020, is his most recent release.

Aside from writing, recording, and performing, Lyn is also an active teaching artist. His lessons include Hip Hop writing workshops, voice lessons, music theory, music production, marketing & branding, DJing, and so much more.

Currently, Lyn lives in Los Angeles, California. He recently received a Master’s Degree in the Music Industry at the University of Southern California class of 2022. He is also continuing to expand his career and outreach by performing in a variety of shows across the West Coast. Lyn is the CEO and founder of High Five Productions LLC; an entertainment company dedicated to providing quality art for the world.
