Karlyn DeSteno is a songwriter currently based in San Francisco. Her distinct alto voice, guitar, songwriting, and storytelling are spare and candid, informed by tradition, getting worn down to essentials. She "deliver[s] from a very profound place" (Cooker John Sagner). Karlyn has been featured by KC Turner Presents, You're Going To Die, and Nomadic Press, among others, and in 2016 co-hosted Don't Tell Us, We Know, a monthly multimedia variety show with Karen Penley. Her debut album, Living House, is due December 2018.
