Abby K has been immersed in music as long as she can recall. Her earliest adrenaline rush from performing came at 16, while belting out the Star Spangled Banner in front of 40,000 Louisville Cardinal basketball fans.
After two decades in the Windy City, where she was exposed to the extremes of weather and musical influences, she has moved her act to Seattle.
Though she is based in Seattle, her music is boundary-less. If you listen closely, you will hear everything from Wilco to Neko Case, Dusty Springfield to REM. Travis to Tom Petty. Van Morrison to Head and the Heart. Her influences embrace the dichotomies in her life.
In all, Abby K is hard to categorize. She is not pop. She is not country. She is not rock. Nor is she alternative or folk. She is Heart Rock. Her sound is nostalgic and modern in the same breath.
So, when it all comes together, what do you get? Honesty. Clarity. Harmony. Beauty. Abby’s sound is as green, lush and dramatic as the Pacific Northwest. It is as lonely as a Chicago winter… and as breezy as a Kentucky spring. Her melodies are instantly hummable and imminently memorable, and her stories will hit you smack dab in the heart.
