Abrielle Scharff

78 Powell St. | 2:00 – 2:30 PM

Abrielle Scharff is a young twenty-something who would love to stop hearing women being placed in a fake genre known as “female singer-songwriter.” Unless we’re going to start calling John Mayer a “male singer-songwriter.” Then, it’s okay. The pop/indie artist’s voice lifts you with incredible ease, as she drops you with emotional devastation and honesty. Her smooth vocal timbre is that of butterscotch and Norah Jones, her genuine lyrics alike to her diary and Brandi Carlile, and her stage presence comparable to a stand-up comic and also Stevie Nicks.
