Jaime Lyn is a proud founding member of Team Starkid and Black Friday marks her 12th musical (!) with these lil Space Babies! You may recognize Jaime Lyn from her previous work with Team Starkid...or as a mermaid in a super bowl commercial...or you might not recognize her at all, and that's WAY more likely! In addition to Starkid, she has performed with Rogue Artists Ensemble and writes & hosts a show for Google called The Review Review. Her hobbies include eating snacks, making up dumb songs, and spending way too much time on Instagram. Jaime Lyn hopes that by the time you read this bio she is the proud owner of an adorable dog and ALSO that we are all still alive because CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND IT IS A SERIOUS THREAT TO HUMANITY, OK??
