Karyn at MusicMakingPeople Studios in Düsseldorf Germany in April 2016

Remember when I got home from Europe a couple of weeks ago and hinted that I had some big news to share with you…?

Well, I do and here it is:
I’m making a record in Germany!!!

Yessssss!! This July I’m heading to Düsseldorf to record a live in-studio album with Michael Hugger and Adam Piastowski of MusicMakingPeople. Ich bin soooooooo excited!!!

Keep your eye out for the crowdfunding campaign; it is going live in the next week or two! I’m gonna need your help with this one. :)

Europe bound


And so we come to my last show on this fine spring tour ~ see you this afternoon in Weesp Netherlands, 20 minutes south of Amsterdam.

Femke's Flowers

Starting just after the football game, of course. => 17:00 @ Cafe de Natte Krant, I’m playing a double bill with electronic / experimental pop artist BobbyPin from Berlin! A great capper to what has been an amazing month here in Europe.

PS, speaking of amazing, I have some verrrrry exciting news to share with you in the coming days…


Maaaaaan. I am loving this tour here in Europe.

Most recently I played five shows in a row ending in a whirlwind 24 hours in Kaiserslautern Germany where I played the Milchundzucker on Saturday night and then on Sunday afternoon, a very special private show (it was Erhardt & Sabine’s 35th anniversary! Congrats and an honour to celebrate with you!)

Now I am chilling out at my friends’ place in the countryside of Switzerland, about 45 minutes outside of Zürich for three days doing laundry, catching up on emails and getting ready for the last leg of the tour.
I can’t believe there are only three more shows! Two of them in Lausanne this Thursday & Friday. Then up to Weesp Netherlands, (just outside of Amsterdam) on Sunday.

For those of you on Facebook, here’s the FB event page for the one on Thursday, which we just added to the tour two days ago!

Check out my tour page for more details about all three of the shows.


Just added a new show in Lausanne Switzerland on Thursday May 5th! Hang tight for details, but mark it in your calendars!
