With a voice known to “beguile the most inattentive bar-goer,” Karyn Ann has gained notoriety as a skilled singer and songwriter. A New York native, she’s migrated coast to coast performing her brand of indie acoustic soul, reminiscent of 70s troubadours like Bonnie Raitt and modern artists like Brandi Carlile. Her song The Ender has appeared in a feature-length indie film and her song Listen My Dear was commissioned for a short film. She performs all over the Portland area and tours nationally. She’s currently finishing an album set to be released this fall.
