Karyn Michaelson describes her music as "Bonnie Raitt meets Van Morrison, with a sprinkle of Springsteen. Passionate, emotional, and with the goal of healing."

On her new LP Connections, Genre-Fluid  sing songwriter Karyn Michaelson has crafted an earnest entreaty to letting go of fears and doing what is right for you. Michaelson has always found solace in music. From the second grader devouring Beatles cuts at the “rainy day listening station”, to a depressed teen who thanks Supertramp for guiding her through, to a musical theater student on Broadway, music has been her eternal confidant. Returning to her Pacific Northwest home of Shoreline, WA,  just north of the Seattle, Michaelson formed the acoustic duo Spiritwalk, wowing audiences at stages ranging from the Tractor Tavern – the spiritual home of Americana in Seattle – to the vaunted Northwest Folklife Festival. 

Eloquently distilling a life full of experience into her eminently engaging songs, Michaelson’s compositions capture universal truths of the everyday.  “This record is about connecting with  people, nature, and oneself. Yet it’s also about trying to connect even after loss, as with death or dementia” 

Always heartfelt, and sometimes gut-wrenching, her music draws influence from the full breadth of the American songbook. Connections features Maria Scherer Wilson on violoncello, who often accompanies Michaelson on stage. It also features guest guitarists Bab Park and Kris Lahd, and Matt Taylor on bass guitar and drums. Matt also mixed the LP at Echo Lake Studios.

With Connections, Michaelson has given a work of elegant depth, passion, and healing.
