'Me For You, You For Me' was born from a Universal understanding of community and dignity. "One person can make a difference in the world and many of us, resonating with the spirit of social and moral justice, can create positive large-scale changes."
NOTES
Lynette sings with a fiery voice that she attributes to her Mexican-American roots.
“Music comes through me, it’s a passion, it’s heart-filled, it’s fun, it’s all rooted in my upbringing around a hodgepodge of various styles of music from 60’s and 70’s folk/country, contemporary acoustic music, independent singer-songwriter, even 80’s techno and traditional Mexican folklore music.”

'Me For You, You For Me' was born from a Universal understanding of community and dignity. "One person can make a difference in the world and many of us, resonating with the spirit of social and moral justice, can create positive large-scale changes."

This song came about when my musical circle asked me to submit a song for a compilation Cd about our community. Although many of the individual artist's songs are about a general place of community, the song that came to me was more about a universal space of community well-being.

In keeping with the community theme, various local musicians accompanied the song. The guitar work was done by Graham Wardrop, one of New Zealand's finest finger-style guitarists. Diana Hickey, a talented singer-songwriter, lent her voice for background vocals, and Arnie van Bussel of Nightshift Studios helped it all come together in the production.
