I just received word about an amazing show going down that I’m incredibly excited about. It’s called The 5th Friday Open Mic. Started three years ago at a stake center in Portland, it’s an open mic for Latter-day Saints in the Portland area to play secular, but wholesome, music. I was floored! How did I find out about this show, you might ask? Well, I ran into its creator, Mark Simnitt (of the Fossil Fools), at my sister’s sealing in the Portland Temple. Another great reason to attend the temple!
Videos are available on YouTube and from the site. It’s a great time for musicians and listeners, and the word is, they’ve been getting around 100 people on some nights, including local performer and Linescratcher KaRyn Daley. Check it out! There’s a gold mine of good new LDS music in Portland!

And here’s KaRyn, by the way:
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.
