Kari Arnett (from the album When the Dust Settles available as a self-release)
There is an open window into the emotions of Kari Arnett on her recent release, When the Dust Settles. Her raw pleas are near whisper as Kari Arnett asks for “One More Chance” on soft Country Rock as she reminds on a percussive heartbeat rhythm that “Breaking is Easy”. When the Dust Settles feels the weight of emptiness in the story and in the slow paced beat of “Tired of This Town” as it strums a forthright Folk Rock sway for the reveries of “When You Were Mine”. Kari Arnett is a mirror that reflects images below the skin, her characters bare as they swim electric guitar snarls in “Dark Waters” while When the Dust Settles offers to share a friend’s burden in “The War”.
Growing up in a rural south-central Wisconsin community, Kari Arnett’s first musical steps experimented with sounds while still at a young age, teaching herself piano and later in her twenties, teaching herself guitar and beginning life as a traveling musician. Kari Arnett takes a stand, shrugging with acceptance as she smirks with successes in “Only a Woman” and works all angles on the airy country and western suite hosting “This American Life”. When the Dust Settles picks itself up and snakes down the highway in the title track as it launches a new plan while turning a slowly revolving melody wheel to begin again in “Starting Over”. Kari Arnett addresses fellow humans with questions wearing the skin of answers on rolling Americana rhythms in “Blood and Bones”.
