Fri, Jan 31 6:00 pm
Larysa Jaye is a Nashville-based acoustic soul artist who synthesizes a broad range of influences in her performances. Her eclectic style reaches everyone in the audience regardless of background or music preference. It's not only her "girl next door" feel that draws her audience in; but her captivating stage presence commands an entire room's undivided attention. Her ability to flow seamlessly from Americana to country to R&B to pop and even to the old-school tunes we all love has earned her an impressive and loyal following. As a little girl growing up in Kansas City, KS, Larysa's influences range from various Christian artists such as Carman, Fred Hammond, Helen Baylor, Rebecca St. James, Out of Eden, and DC Talk to legendary R&B performers to Nashville's rich community of singer-poet-songwriters. Since relocating to Nashville many years ago, her style has grown and evolved into a beautiful blend of Americana and soul. As a songwriter, Larysa takes different aspects of her everyday life as a wife, mother, and even just being a woman to write songs that hit home for anyone who listens.
