About The Living Room Acoustic Showcase Artists
Katy Vernon has played in the Twin Cities for over 10 years but originally hails from London. She recently completed a Kickstarter Campaign to support her 3rd full length album, "Suit of Hearts.” Though she writes in “a folk-y way,” Katy says her new album is the most pop-influenced to date, and was inspired by her first solo tour of the United Kingdom, which found her performing and writing for 6 weeks. Her music, which blends an Americana sound with UK Pop influences, has been featured locally on TPT, WCCO, and The Current. Katy also organizes a yearly ukelele festival in the Twin Cities called UkeFest.
Joyann Parker typically plays with a dynamic 5-piece band, but will be presenting “stripped down” versions of her original blues songs with fellow band-mate and arranger Mark Lamoine. She has been compared to such vocal legends as Janis Joplin, with critics citing her musical prowess and passionate performances. Joyann can be found performing regularly at an array of national festivals and locally at the top jazz/blues clubs in the Twin Cities, including Dakota Jazz Club and Vieux Carre. She will be releasing a new album called “Hard To Love” on April 13th. We have high hopes she'll have a few special pre-release copies at the Showcase!
