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-agnostic Seattle 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 musical theater student on Broadway, music has been her eternal confidant. Returning to her Pacific Northwest home, 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 - of which she has written nearly one hundred - Michaelson’s compositions capture universal truths of the everyday.  “This is a 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. Working away at her home studio (with occasional mix assistance from Matt Taylor from Echo Lake Studios), Michaelson has been patiently honing her craft. In addition to Michaelson, the record features Maria Scherer Wilson on violoncello, guitarists Bab Park and Kris Lahd, and Matt Taylor on bass guitar and drums.  

With Connections, Michaelson has given a work of elegant depth, passion, and healing. Now available at https://karynmichaelson.bandcamp.com/
