Karyn Ann / Press

““Accept Uncertainty” is an obvious testimony to Ann’s gifts as a vocalist, but upon repeat listens also reveals her to be a skilled, emotive songwriter with an ear for good production. Join the club, check out “Accept Uncertainty”, and I promise you’ll soon find yourself singing along with the subtle backing vocals in “Heartful Soul” and dancing along to the summery groove of “I Ain’t” like you’ve been listening to these songs your whole life.”

“Karyn Ann Patridge has a voice that will beguile the most inattentive bar-goer. Her alto-soprano and expert guitar pickin' is showcased all over Portland's folk scene. Hear her sing "Let The Wind Carry Me." http://karynpatridgemusic.com ”

“Spearheaded by creative force of nature Rachael Rice, the impressively monikered Vulva Underground collective has staged several multi-artist tribute shows in recent months, featuring songs by the likes of Neil Young, Joni Mitchell and Simon and Garfunkel. Tonight, though, the VU pays tribute to itself, as its skilled and disparate members share their own songs. Performers include some familiar faces like Mel Kubik and Kris Deelane, some missing-in-action of late, such as Little Sue and Miriams Well, and some artists newer to Portland stages, like vocal powerhouse (and former Ukrainian pop star) Darka Dusty and elastic-voiced Karyn Ann.”

“Portland's Karyn Patridge possesses a lovely, rich alto-soprano voice that she employs in the service of folk, blues, pop, rock and jazz. Originally from Oswego, N.Y., Patridge has carried her guitar and voice to a variety of coffee shops and clubs throughout the Northwest and is allegedly shy, but certainly not bedeviled by stage fright. Singer-songwriters ply a difficult trade, often belting out powerful tunes over the chatter of indifferent audiences, but Patridge has a voice that can cut through the conversation and gets folks to listen.”

“Karyn's voice takes her shy personality and beats you over the head with it. Undeniably powerful, she can draw you in with a sweet, soft melody and then bowl you over with a thunderous roar.”
