Lynch, who will make her solo cabaret debut at 54 Below June 18-21, spoke with interviewer Lee Cowan.
“I don’t think anything makes me happier than singing, and I’m not a great singer,” Lynch tells Cowan. “I’m not like, ‘Whooo!’ But it just fills me with such joy. It like massages my soul. Music transcends me.”
Lynch also admits that she is nervous about her upcoming four-night run at the Manhattan nightspot.
“I think I’m appropriately nervous,” Lynch explains. “It’s one of those things that it shows up, you kind of put it out in the universe, if you will, and it shows up and, as much as my insides were screaming ‘no,’ I said, ‘Yes, I’ll do it.’”
Lynch also discusses her work on “Glee,” growing up in Chicago and her personal battle with alcohol.
“I started going to AA. I was never tempted to pick up a drink ever again,” Lynch tells Cowan. “It freaked me out that people left AA and got drunk again. I was like, why would you do that? And it’s 22 years later, and I haven’t had a drink.”
