In Concert: Wynnm
Born amidst the sands and sunburnt rock faces of the Sonoran Desert in the Southwestern united States to a harmonica player father and a first-generation Korean mother, Wynnm’s dark notes and honey-throated tones draw from experiences far beyond her landscape, circumstance, and family myths of origin. CD’s like Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, Moby, The Doors, and Creedance Clearwater Revival spun in the family car on long road trips. She came of age with love for bass beats and albums by powerful female vocalists like Annie Lennos, Portishead, and Fiona Apple. Wynnm’s quicksilver sound is an amalgation of smooth folk and vital bass. Her sound emerges from the dusty mirages of Arizona and the private mountains of Idaho but cycles to the electronic beats of Amsterdam, a place she’s called home for nearly half a decade.
