About Me
In 2009, Karyn Oliver moved to a town called Boring with a broken heart and a cheap guitar. It was from this place that she created the album that made her both a Kerrville New Folk Finalist and a Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist in 2011, as well as a 2010 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest winner.

In 2011, Oliver moved to a town called New York City, with a much-renewed heart and a much better guitar named “Roxann”. It is from this place that she created what is her best album to date, “Magdalene”.

Karyn is part Joan Osborne, a touch of Janis Joplin and a bit of EmmyLou Harris – effortlessly oscillating from bluesy to country and back. Her musical inspiration comes primarily from the eclectic mix of music to which she was exposed while growing up in the musically diverse culture of Washington, D.C.

"Karyn Oliver has been a key member of the Baltimore and now New York folk music communities, but it's in Nashville that she's found a studio home, with Thomm Jutz supplying tasteful production to a fine collection of songs on Karyn's new album, Magdalene."
- John Platt, WFUV (March, 2013)

“Magdalene is a gorgeous CD! The soulful and seductive voice of Karyn Oliver mesmerizes the listener with an intimate assembly of songs that celebrate the touches of saints and sinners that exist in all of us and examine the rewards that come from taking risks. Powerful songs shared by one of the most incredible voices on the acoustic music scene!”
- Ron Olesko, WFDU (March, 2013)

“Red Dress is a marvelous way to launch a career in a market headed up by Bonnie Raitt and Lucinda Williams; but Karyn Oliver certainly appears to have the voice and writing skills to ride in their slipstream until the time is right for her to take over”
- Allan Harrison, Maverick Magazine (August, 2011)

“Karyn’s voice puts us in mind of Janis Joplin without the rasp or perhaps Lucinda Williams on steroids. We’re lucky to get her in the singer/songwriter realm. With that powerful instrument, she could be a star in the rock arena. Her voice has a swagger”
- Richard Cucarro - Acoustic Live (Dec, 2010)

In 2011, Karyn became a board member of The NorthEast Regional Folk Alliance, and is currently part of a touring tribute show celebrating the 40th anniversary of Joni Mitchell’s “Blue” Album.

Hi Karyn

are you coming through Germany on your next time through Europe? Would you like to play a gig together in Cologne?
At 14:45 on November 6, 2009, Martin van de Vrugt said…
Hi Karyn, May 15 is a deal! I will contact Willem for the 16th.
We'll keep in touch!!

Hi Karyn, how are things going?
I have three contacts for gigs in the Netherlands. May 15 at "de School van Frieswijk" Schalkhaar (near Deventer). We can share this one. It's a fantastic place to play! I have a gig on april 23 in Hellendoorn. I'd be happy to share this one with you. Last but not least I have contacted Willem Noordstrand, Programmer "De Oude Remise". You've played there earlier didn't you? He will be happy to have us on a sunday. You know the conditions...

Greetings!

Martin

What a small and wonderful world it is! I am very excited to be doing a show with you at the Grub Cafe in May :) Perhaps we could do a song or two together? Looking forward to it!
At 23:20 on October 1, 2009, Jessica Kilroy said…
It would be awesome to do a show together. I won't be out your way until Mar-May of 2010 though. Will you be around then?

That's great - do use my direct email of meanmachine392003@yahoo.co.uk if you wish.
Grub currently has March 5 13 20 27 April 9 10 17 23 available (plus a couple of earler Fridays and most Fridays and Saturdays May onwards). I'll happily coordinate with Julian Lewry as well, if that helps.

All the best!

Hi Karyn,
I can offer you a gig on may 15 at 'de School van Frieswijk' Schalkhaar (that's near my hometown Deventer). It would be nice if we could team up here and there!
At 23:16 on September 23, 2009, Jessica Kilroy said…
I like your lyrics "you kinda smell like sin", very clever.
At 7:57 on August 25, 2009, Martin van de Vrugt said…
Now it's my turn to say...
You're welcome :-)
