Howdy friends: a few people have alerted me to the fact that my name is missing from the Local’s listings and this is causing some confusion. Here are the facts: YES! the show at the Local is still happening. YES! I am on the bill. YES! it is at 9pm. YES! you should come!
Michael and Adam from Music Making People – a lovely studio based in Dusseldorf Germany – sent me this short film today. A seven-day time-lapse showing the view from their studio window at the corner of Graf-Adolf-Straße. My song, Ten Stories, is the soundtrack.
Beautiful and Meditative. Enjoy!
I came across this video podcast on Brainstorm9 from Brazil that seems to be saying nice things about my music [starting at 0:50].
UPDATE: A friend of mine did a quick translation of the video for me:
“[She] is asked to share a few music suggestions and at around 0:50 she says: “Rdio, which I like much more than Spotify, introduced me to a singer called Karyn Ellis. I really liked it, began to listen to her whole album. And something very cute happened, which is also why I’m making this suggestion. She came out on the top-5 of [my] “extra fan” [listing tweet], and [Karyn] replied to me [on twitter]. She was really happy to have been mentioned and said thank you. I told her I discovered her music and really liked it and she was grateful and just super cute, so yea. Listen to Karyn Ellis – it’s happy music, girl music, but it’s not Taylor Swift. There’s a little weirdness about it and I think music should have a little weirdness about it (the other guy laughs and she continues). “Really, she’s happy but sometimes she’s, like, mad. Anyways you should all be curious and listen; she just seems to be very independent.”
Marina Marina made another little movie of me, this time singing “Little Grey Sparrow” at our house concert in Basel Switzerland on the 16th; intercut are with more sights from our European tour so far. Enjoy!
