Watch Laryssa perform Sunday, May 31 at 6pm on the OMN Facebook Page.

We are told:

With her ever-growing and enthusiastic fan base, Portland-based soul/folk/pop singer-songwriter Laryssa Birdseye is probably most known for her emotionally-powerful, sometimes scathing “break-up” songs. Laryssa’s ballads and pop-soul anthems effortlessly tap into the universal psyche of women her age around the world, who have all experienced heights and pitfalls in that rocky battlefield called love.

But, Laryssa’s innate talent as a songwriter, accomplished vocalist and skilled instrumentalist prove she’s much more than just the latest incarnation of the eternally lovelorn Taylor Swift. She builds a depth into her songs and live performances inspired by soul and folk/roots influences, without taking herself too seriously while letting her decidedly wicked sense of humor shine. All-in-all, one could say Laryssa is a next-gen musical artist with a dirty mouth and a heart of gold. Guitar in hand, Laryssa is a formidable songwriter, evoking an earlier Sheryl Crow with a grungier, moodier sound.

Vocally, she’s been in line with the likes of Norah Jones (perhaps with an itty-bitty anger problem), and has been known to elicit comparisons to hit-maker pop sensibilities of singer-songwriters Sara Bareilles or Adele. Laryssa will have you shouting right along with her during one of her empowering anthems, yet can also emotionally-clutch you in the palm of her hand during a somber, intensely moving ballad.

Along the way, listeners should be prepared to laugh - a lot, and to feel - a lot. Backed by her dedicated fulll band, Laryssa has been gaining recognition as a rising star in her home turf of the Pacific Northwest and – increasingly – the West Coast and wide World beyond. Her 2nd official album, “Press Play”, is a concept EP exploring grief - and its different stages - and was released late 2019.

A prolific live show performer, fans can catch her while touring regularly up and down the West Coast and other cities.
