Not just a kewpie singer, Priscilla Ahn is a talented singer-songwriter.
I love these lyrics from Dream
Long walks in the dark through woods grown behind the park
I asked God who I’m supposed to be
The stars smiled down on me, God answered in silent reverie
I said a prayer and fell asleep
Now I’m old and feeling grey
I don’t know what’s left to say about this life I’m willing to leave
I lived it full and I lived it well, there’s many tales I’ve lived to tell
I’m ready now, I’m ready now, I’m ready now to fly from the highest wing
I had a dream
Of the ilk of other folksy, indie heart-barers like Rachael Yamagata and Natalie Walker, Ahn will be playing at the Esplanade Recital Studio on August 2. Expect an intimate evening.
Half Korean and half American, her voice is a little twee – but her package of singer-songwriter and musicianship take her out of the pop-twee brigade.
If her music sounds familiar, that’s because you’ve heard her in the background of My Sister’s Keeper, Grey’s Anatomy and The Ghost Whisperer.
