Keren Ann was bred to be a touring artist, starting out her life going back and forth from Israel (where she was born) to The Netherlands, and then at age 11, moving to Paris.  Since then she has lived in New York, back in Israel, and on the road.

Keren Ann now has 6 albums under her belt, the latest being 101, which she is now touring in support of.  Interested in production as well as songwriting, you can hear the careful crafting in her songs that go from simple and sweetly heartbreaking (“Not Going Anywhere”) to sleekly produced with synths (“My Name is Trouble”).  Her vocals have a delicate bluesy jazz tone to them (hence a record deal with the Jazz label Blue Note).  Listeners hang onto her words as it sounds like she’s just about to veer off key with her delicate tone, but she’s always on, just at the edges.

Keren Ann’s music has been featured on various TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy, where opener Chris Garneau’s music has also been featured.  Chris’ delicate tenor vocals are accompanied by his dramatic keyboards and wonderfully melancholy cello.  At times synth will appear in his songs as well, but the focus is the songwriting and song itself, much like Keren Ann.  This also marks Chris’ first appearance in Seattle since 2007 — show up early in order to avoid painful regret (You know, that feeling that both Chris and Keren Ann doubtlessly have plenty of songs about) .
