Introducing Jerin Falkner (Northwest Folklife Festival)

One of the artists who shared the stage at Cafe Impromptu
with Mark Ward last weekend
was a sassy young woman named
Jerin Falkner.

Jerin has released four albums,
the newest being Pyro Aesthetic.
I bought her 2007 Acoustic Journal
during her performance at Cafe Impromptu.

During the Folklife gig,
she mentioned that she grew up around Spokane.

She also mentioned that she has a little problem with electricity
and getting electrocuted occasionally.

Like when she used a curling iron
with a frayed cord
and ended up with singe marks on her face
and her hand numb for four hours.

Buy a CD from this woman
so she can afford to buy a new curling iron!
Just click on her name up at the top of this post
and you can visit her website.

And just so you can see and hear how talented she is,
I've inserted a You-Tube video she recorded herself,
walking along with her flip-camera and singing her song,
"Count of Three."

And if you want more,
click here
to listen to some more cuts,
including songs called "More Beautiful Broken"
and "Not a Love Song," both of which are
featured on Acoustic Journal,
the one I bought.

For those of you who live in or around
the Puget Sound area,
Jerin will perform at Jazzbones in Tacoma on Sunday, June 14 (7:00 pm)
Restaurant Le Pichet (1st Avenue in Seattle) Sunday, June 21 at 2:30 p.m.

p.s. I don't get kickbacks for advertising.
I really haven't taken a job as an agent.
(But I'm looking for one.)

oh if we all could walk boldly singing our song.
brazenly, tossing our heart beat into the landscape in this meeting of hearts and minds.

so glad you shared..
ahhhhh but you are so good at that.

I liked this a lot. She sounds a bit like Tori Amos, who I've been listening to obsessively recently.

Where can you find her stuff?
