ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Kipyn Martin is an emerging Americana singer/songwriter whose roots sink into the banks of the Shenandoah River. According to folk legend John Gorka, Kipyn is "a beauty of a singer." She currently plays festival stages in Virginia and Maryland and delights audiences at vineyards, coffeehouses, and house concerts throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.

In 2014 Kipyn had the privilege of opening for John Gorka, Ellis Paul, John Flynn, The Stray Birds, Ellis, Humming House, and The Kennedys. Other accolades in 2014 include winning Gold, Silver, and 3rd Place Overall in the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest with her song, "Dance Across the Sky," and being selected as a showcase artist at the Southeast/Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (SNERFA) conference. Kipyn was also honored to have won the WAMMIE (Washington Area Music Award) for 2014 New Artist of the Year.

Songs from Kipyn's debut album, Undercover Muse (2013), have also earned attention on national and international levels. "I Believe in You" scored a semi-finalist rating in the 2013 UK Song Contest, while "Nightbird" took home a Gold Award, as well as the Director's Choice Award, in the 2013 Mid-Atlantic Song Contest. Offering an authentic representation of Kipyn's live performance, the songs from Undercover Muse are strictly acoustic. Michael Granberry of The Dallas Morning News calls her song, "Undone" (which was written about her mentor, Shenandoah acoustic blues artist Pops Walker) simply "a terrific song."

Placing in the NewSong Academy Songwriting Competition inspired Kipyn to pursue a Master of Music degree, which she attained from Shenandoah Conservatory in 2012. A passion for poetry and song fuels her as she writes the songs for her second album. A vitality of voice, both poetic and musical, makes this woman a performing artist not to be missed.
