Check out the Sounds of PDX interview with star Portland singer Haley Johnsen
“You heard it right! A Triple Release show from three Portland artists in one night! Karyn Ann will be releasing her new full-length album ‘Be Loud’, alongside Haley Johnsen who will be releasing two new singles, and Leo London who will be releasing a new EP.”
“With a voice known to “beguile the most inattentive bar-goer,” Karyn Ann has gained notoriety as a skilled singer and songwriter, drawing comparisons to 60’s troubadours like Bonnie Raitt and Carole King and modern artists like Adele and Brandi Carlile. Karyn Ann’s second studio album Be Loud is an eclectic cultivation of the calm, brooding, and compassionate personas she introduced in her 2015 debut album Into the Depths, only this time around it’s bursting with color – from rock anthem waves to funky dance riffs to more tender and delicate moments, Be Loud paints a world arguing with itself and the observer caught in between.”
“Haley Johnsen is a singer-songwriter best characterized by her powerhouse vocals and unique lyrical perspective. Drawing inspiration from acts like Bonnie Raitt and Grace Potter, Haley writes and sings with a determination that is willful, playful, but never forced. Born in Oregon to musical parents, Haley grew up around everything from pop to classic rock, country, and soul, an appreciable quality that is easily recognized in her original songs. Haley recently finished touring as lead support for The Wind and The Wave all across the United States and had also toured with Sawyer Fredericks (Winner of The Voice season 8). Her first national attention came from a strong run on a reality music competition and has since maintained a strong following that stretches well beyond her hometown of Portland.”

Friday, July 27, Joe Kye, Catherine Feeny at Jack London Revue
Joe Kye was Luke’s guest on Sounds of PDX! Podcast coming soon. Born in Korea and raised in Seattle, violinist-looper and vocalist Joe Kye has drawn rave reviews since launching his music career in 2013, “discharging world[s] of emotion” and delivering “divine messages” with his lush string loops, sweet vocals, and eclectic style (Guitar World). Drawing upon his immigrant upbringing, Kye blends indie-rock, jazz, classical, pop, and Korean folk to create a unique sound that “leaves everyone in awe” (Sac News and Review). With his innovative use of digital effects and looping, Kye weaves together diverse textures, catchy melodies, and rich, sweet vocals to create songs that groove, uplift, and empower listeners: “A single violinist…one mesmerizing symphony” (Sacramento Bee). Kye released his newest album, Migrants, in January 2018 to acclaim, with glowing reviews from OPB Music, Republic of Jazz, and NPR’s “The World.”
