Since her releases Into the Depths (2015) and Be Loud (2018), Karyn has built up her presence throughout the West Coast, gaining comparisons to Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin and Carole King.
Vortex Music Magazine describes her vocal tone as “melodic and pure” and “spellbinding”, while The Crush calls her “a classic voice for our modern era.” Karyn’s heartfelt and rewarding performances have earned her slots at notable festivals and venues, including Women’s Redrock Music Festival (where she played alongside Emily Saliers of the Indigo Girls) and the legendary Bitter End in NYC. In Portland she has shared shows with artists such as Haley Johnson, Pretty Gritty and Fox and Bones.
Her recent single “Who You Were” showcases the soulful elements in her already dynamic and impressive catalogue. Co-produced with Matt Greco at The Rye Room, “Who You Were” has a mournful melancholy vibe evocative of Sarah Bareilles and Brandi Carlile, and features The Bizarre Star Strings (The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket). Its soaring strings and major/minor chordal changes convey the songs’ sentiment inspired by a relative’s struggle with addiction, delivering a message of choosing to hope through the pain.
“Who You Were" is out now available worldwide.
