Priscilla Ahn

Priscilla Ahn

The quirky and soulful hallmarks that define Priscilla Ahn’s folk-pop music and her pristine, ethereal vocals are uniquely her own.

Growing up in Pennsylvania, Ahn listened to Neil Young, the Beatles, Pink Floyd and other music her dad enjoyed listening to. Ahn later found personal resonance in female artists Ani DiFranco, Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, and Feist, and after high school, and a road trip that took her to Los Angeles, Ahn discovered jazz, and in particular, jazz legend Chet Baker. It was a creative turning point. “The way Chet Baker sang and the way he played trumpet affected the way my vocal technique evolved.”

In L.A., Ahn played in coffee houses, “and at every open mike there was,” networking with other musicians and finding gigs in small clubs, before coming to the attention of producer Joey Waronker and signing with Blue Note Records. Ahn’s professional career has taken her through the United States, and to Europe, Japan, China, and South Korea. She has toured with such noted artists as Willie Nelson, Amos Lee, and Ray LaMontagne. Her eclectic list of collaborators includes Tiesto, Sia, Inara George, and Dave Sitek. 

While Ahn describes her music as “folksinger-songwriter-based,” she pulls ideas from books that move her and findsinspiration in painting. “I’m not good at it, but it feeds that part of my brain that kind of needs to breathe and get exercise. And all of that funnels back into my songwriting somehow, sort of subconsciously.”
