About Karlyn Music

Unlike most musicians in the wedding industry, Karly's musical education and background are in jazz and contemporary music as opposed to classical music. As a pianist and vocalist, she specializes in creating unique arrangements of both pop and classical songs, and even creates "mash-ups" when clients want something unique. Her mash-up of "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" (by Bach) and "Can't Help Falling in Love" (by Elvis) is a client favorite!

Karly studied at Boston's famed Berklee College of Music (John Mayer went there, too!) and plays with Mannheim Steamroller during the holiday season. Her experience in the music industry as a performer, songwriter, and studio musician give her a unique skillset for weddings: she is acutely aware of how music plays a larger role in setting the tone for guests as they arrive for a ceremony, and she can intuitively segue music from song to song with ease and elegance, avoiding akward silences at all costs. Additionally, as a vendor with 15+ years in the wedding industry who "attends" 50+ wedding ceremonies every year, Karly offers her clients insights beyond the musical realm. She enjoys sharing ideas and tips with clients during their song selection meetings. For many clients, these meetings are where the vision for their ceremony starts to feel real.


Services Offered:


WEDDING CEREMONY MUSIC (Live and Recorded)

Karly can perform as a soloist (piano, or piano + voice), and she can hire additional players as well, including:

- String players (violin, cello, a string trio or string quartet)

- Additional Vocalists (such as a male vocalist to join her if you want a duet)

- Trumpet players

- Bagpipers

- Guitarists... and more!

Karly also creates recordings for couples to use when live music isn't feasible. Search for Karlyn Music on Instagram, YouTube, and Sound Cloud to hear samples. Contact Karly to request a custom recording for your wedding. Karly@KarlynMusic.com

COCKTAIL HOUR & DINNER MUSIC

Karly can perform as a soloist (piano, or piano and singing), or with her band. She provides an ecclectic mix of pop songs and jazz standards. Customize the size of the band to fit your budget. (3-4 players is the most popular option.)

SPOTLIGHT DANCE

Make your First Dance truly memorable by hiring Karly to perform your Spotlight Dance(s) LIVE! This is a great option when clients want their special songs played at a slower or faster tempo than the recording, or when lyrics need to be changed to fit the occasion.

CUSTOM RECORDINGS

For clients who are incorporating recorded music into their special day, this is a great option to consider. Karly can take your favorite pop song and record it as a solo piano piece, or add some strings. The options are endless. When these types of recordings are created for processional music, Karly can create special versions that are shorter in length, or played in a way that feels more wedding appropriate (slower or more dramatic, etc)

    Extraordinarily beautiful wedding music!

    I have known Karly’s parents for a very long time and when our kids were little we gathered each Christmas with a hired Santa to celebrate the season and see each other’s kids. What a joy it was so many years later to have Karly sing and play at our daughter’s wedding. In this beautiful tapestry of life it was such a gift to celebrate this joyous day in our family with her singing & playing the piano and her parents present at the wedding. Karly shares her gift of music and singing with others in so many ways- funerals, church masses, & weddings. And it is at weddings where her talents radiate and shine! Her piano playing is exceptional, her arrangements are elegant & beautiful, and her singing rings so clear…the voice of an angel. I am listening to her songs on Soundcloud (check it out) as I write this and each time a song plays that we used at our daughter’s wedding, tears come to my eyes. The songs & arrangements are that beautiful. Let this one item on the very long list of wedding details be taken care of by Karly! Also, Karly arranged for the quartet that played at the wedding and coordinated with the music director at our church. You can rest easy that all the wedding music will be taken care of by Karly on this very special day for your family!

    Absolutely Perfect!

    Having known of Karly via family, and seeing her perform at St. Pat’s in Elkhorn, we reached out to her immediately after setting our wedding date and were thrilled she was available. From guiding us through the song selection process & creating the theme & feel we wanted to convey at our wedding, Karly was an absolute professional. She even went as far to help us review our Wedding Program for any errors or recommended changes, several of which we would have never thought of or noticed we formatted incorrectly. Finally, Karly is an incredibly talented musician and has a beautiful voice which certainly enhanced our wedding. She is extremely helpful, kind, and is a wonderful resource who did not create any stress, and even helped reduce stress during the very busy wedding planning process. I would highly recommend her to anyone planning their special day!

    Absolutely wonderful!

    The music at our wedding mass was very important to the two of us, and we could not have been blessed with a better musician than Karlyn, she exceeded expectations! Her voice is angelic! She also coordinated a string trio for us, who all also did an amazing job. Working with Karlyn was very easy; we communicated the songs we wanted for our ceremony, and she coordinated the rest. Would highly recommend!

Team of Karlyn Music

Karly Jurgensen

Karly Jurgensen

Lead Musician

Hi, I'm Karly! I play the piano and sing, and love providing music for weddings. Just like couples who want something different, I like to PLAY something different... so I'm constantly creating new arrangements and "mash-ups," to keep things new and fresh for my ears and for wedding guests, too.

A "mash-up" is 2 or more songs put together to make one unique song. A few of the mash-ups I've created include:

* Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring (by Bach) + Can't Help Falling in Love (by Elvis)

* What a Wonderful World (Louis Armstrong) + Canon in D (Pachelbel)

* Love Song (The Cure) + Canon in D (Pachelbel)

* Rather Be (Clean Bandid) + Trumpet Tune (Clarke)

* Love Story (Taylor Swift) + Viva La Vida (Coldplay)

*Sky Full of Stars (Coldplay) + Something Just Like This (Coldplay)

You can hear recordings of some of these on my Sound Cloud Page (www.Soundcloud.com/KarlynMusic), and more recordings are on the way!
