Linescratchers’ second interview from over the oceans, the articulate, passionate KaRyn Daley is a breath of fresh air in the acoustic scene. The folk/jazz/acoustic scene can be so over-saturated with blandness, and trapped in its own laziness, that when you find a musician like KaRyn, something truly fresh and unique, it’s almost jarring. Her lyrics are amazingly honest. Her melodies are perfectly simple, but are ornately decorated with her stellar but raw vocals. KaRyn has a rapturous, sometimes subtle but controlled vibrato, a dark, soothing tone, but believe it or not, she’s a soprano. She is currently teaching music in Seoul, but she has taken time from her schedule to fill out this interview. Find out more about her music at http://www.myspace.com/karynmusic.
