Based in Seattle, Koryn Orcutt enjoys a diverse music career as a songwriter, singer, and multi-instrumentalist.
Koryn’s love of music was sparked in the fourth grade with the first notes of the clarinet, but soon grew to include writing melodies and song lyrics. This love of songwriting has grown into representation with ASCAP and two singles, "Enough" and "Strut," currently repped in sync licensing catalogs for tv, film and ads. Her song, “Let Us Breathe” was featured in the 2020-2021 season at the Village Theatre.
In addition to songwriting, Koryn can be heard performing on flutes, oboe, English horn, bassoon, clarinets, and saxophones in the pit orchestras of the 5th Avenue Theatre and Village Theatre. Prior to calling Seattle home, she was an in-demand woodwind doubler in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and has performed with Lyric Stage and the Las Colinas Symphony Orchestra. A classically-trained musician, she holds a Bachelors and Masters Degree in Multiple Woodwind Performance from the University of North Texas.
Koryn strives to create music that resonates with listeners in provocative ways. She enjoys blending singer-songwriter, pop, and R&B stylings with inspiration from personal experiences and reflections, as well as the stories of others.
In the coming months, Koryn will blend her love of musical theatre with songwriting to compose her first musical. Named a Songwriter/Composer/Lyricist Fellow with The Fifth Avenue and Village Theatres in Seattle, she will be collaborating with Danielle Mohlman in the inaugural NWXNW in 2021.
