Throw in a stiff shot of Jewel, a little Sarah McLachlan, a pinch of Taylor Swift in a blender, and you'll wind up with a delicious Love Creature smoothie. The name Love Creature is an evolution from the nickname of a certain black cat we know, to a band name, and finally to a soloist. And more importantly it embodies the mission of her message and music in that we all ideally are love creatures. Whether she is playing upbeat pop tunes, or melodic folk, Karyn has a way of energizing a crowd performing her original music which appeals to all ages. Karyn has released three albums, and has been nominated for Best Album and Best Song of the year by JPF and also Best New Upcoming Artist by New Artist Radio.
Karyn comes from a classical background attending SUU on a scholarship for the violin and is multifaceted as a songwriter, vocalist, guitarist, pianist, and violinist. Her classical training seeps into her songwriting bringing in elements of baroque and other styles.
As Love Creature, Karyn is focused on connecting to a more spiritual side of herself spreading love and light while vacillating between heart felt and frivolous fun. She performs with her acoustic guitar, layering harmonies with her loop pedal, creating music that reconnects us to that something that is who and what we are in this shared human experience. Relax and enjoy the calming, moving flow of music meant for all the love creatures of the world.
