      Fiery Folk Singer Karyn Oliver brings CD Release Show to Isis Music Hall

      Karyn Oliver has been described a ‘fiery folk singer’ (The Alternate Root) and ‘one of the most incredible voices on the acoustic music scene’ (WFDU.) Isis Music Hall is continuing a tradition of bringing the best in national touring music acts to downtown Asheville by inviting Oliver for a return performance, this time in support of a brand-new CD, ‘A List of Names,’ on Thursday, August 22nd.
      Oliver’s performances bring to mind a touch of Janis Joplin, a dash of Joan Osborne, and a healthy helping of Emmy Lou Harris. Her musical inspirations come primarily from the eclectic mix of music of her Washington, D.C. childhood. Her songwriting has won many coveted accolades , including Kerrville New Folk and Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist Finalist spots, and 1st place in the Mid-Atlantic Song Contest.
      Fans of modern musical storytellers like Mary Gauthier will want to give Oliver’s latest work ‘A List of Names,’ a listen. The album title is a clue to the songs Oliver delivers in this powerful collection. ‘Dawn’ is the story of an unwelcome child (‘Mama can’t forgive her the way she came to this world,’) ‘Edwina’ recalls memories of a girlhood friend (‘you were the queen when we were young, Annie Oakley with your gun,’) and ‘Cordelia’, about a misunderstanding with a loved one. Some songs are names of places, like ‘St. Joseph,’ the story of a school named for a saint (‘St. Joseph never would have built this place.’) There are songs that are positively empowering (‘About Enough’ and ‘Beautiful.’) ‘A List of Names’ will be available for sale and signing at the show.
      The music starts at 7 pm on Thursday, August 22nd at Isis Music Hall and Kitchen. Tickets are $15 and may be bought online at or at the door. Limited tables are available with a dinner reservation. All other seating is first-come first-serve general admission. Call the venue at 828-575-273 for table reservations. Isis Music Hall is located at 743 Haywood Ave. in Asheville. For more about Karyn Oliver visit
