We are happy to announce we get to play the beautiful and always enjoyable Alberta Street Pub with Seattle singer/songwriter Brenda Xu and fellow Portlander Karyn Ann.
21+ $5 cover Show at 8pm
After releasing a debut EP and a full-length record in her hometown of San Diego to numerous accolades (including reviews in Performer Magazine and a nomination from the San Diego Music Awards), ambient-folk artist, Brenda Xu (pronounced “shoo”) re-located to Seattle where she has just released her third album. Her ethereal voice has been compared to artists such as PJ Harvey, Daughter, and Aimee Mann.
You check Brenda's ambient-folk stylings here.
A dedicated student of Blues, Soul and Gospel, Karyn’s singing and songwriting follow a long line from the piano roll Blues and Jazz of the 20’s and 30’s onward thru 60’s troubadours such as Bonnie Raitt to modern day artists like Shawn Colvin, Joan Osborne, Martin Sexton, Brandi Carlisle, Fiona Apple and Foy Vance.
Karyn Ann's marriage of Soul, Blues and Folk can be heard here.
