Abby Brown/The Girl in Black
I am a 14 year old singer/performer, but on the fourth of July I will be turning 15! I was the very FIRST performer at the very FIRST Yakima AppleJam and it was so much fun! This was also the day I got my stage name. AKA The Girl In Black. Vote for me and I promise you will not be disappointed!!

She was also honored enough to sing the National Anthem at the Yakima Veteran Coalition’s stand down event, and for the Daughter’s of the American Revolution. Arissa has an amazing passion for singing, with such a unique tone, hope you enjoy!

My name is Erik, I have been playing music since I was 4 years old. Playing music with my friends in various groups is great too! It is the best feeling in the world to write your own music and share it with people. I want to play in the Apple Jam because I want the chance to share my solo music in front of new people!
Hi, I'm a local singer-songwriter who's trying to get into the music scene here in Yakima. I've been doing open mics at some local coffee shops and it's been the greatest. My favorite kind of music is indie, alternative, and rock. I'm so unbelievably excited to branch out and sing different styles of music.
I am a person who genuinely expresses my feelings in all forms day to day . i happen to play music which allows me to express myself in a way that increases the odds that any given person will be able to relate to my frame of mind , even if they dont agree. i am considerate but i pull no punches. I promise not to be as presumptuous as to attempt to play what i think people want to hear but rather play myself , playing myself in a live action story that im narrating with song.
