Portland-based, Neo-acoustic, Soul artist Karyn Ann, is releasing her debut full-length albumInto the Depths this Sunday, September 20th at the Secret Society Ballroom in Portland.
A student of Blues, Soul and Gospel, the Bonnie Raitt/Adele influenced singer/songwriter will be backed by Mark Bowden (Kris Deelane & the Hurt) on Guitar, James Pearson on Drums, Nick Foltz (Lowlight) on Bass and Tim Karplus (The Breaking) on Keys.
In her own words:
I’m perpetually propelled towards songwriting, to explore and shed light on the duality of life every time my pen hits the paper. That feeling of the more I know the less I seem to know. Writing is my avenue of expression and articulation, how I work through unknowns, fear and loss. As a friend once said of me, ‘these are not songs for music’s sake, these are songs for journaling.’
