Liney Blu


Kansas City singer songwriter Liney Blu writes from a unique place of personal experience and identity. Liney vividly show us how vulnerability is strength and require us to see love, frustration, disappointment and humor through lenses we may not have considered. Every song finds Liney passionately and sometimes bravely exploring a broader, more inclusive understanding of the human experience while letting us into some sacred personal spaces to do so. And while many listeners are just finding Liney Blu, she set out on her path as a songwriter and artist as a teenager.

At age 17 as Caroline Blubaugh she released a first EP titled "Green" which featured the single "San Francisco” that quickly saw 185K Spotify streams. In 2023 as Liney Blu, came a 2nd EP, "Pennsylvania St." with bandmates bassist Renee Huey and drummer Jones Goldman. “Pennsylvania St.” is an introspective, sometimes raw, indie pop rock/folk synthesis built on innovative arrangements relentlessly pushed along by Liney’s deep, resonant vocal, subtly insistent delivery and very personal passion.  


New music building on the release of “Pennsylvania St.” is in the works.  Liney Blu can be heard in venues around the Kansas City/Lawrence area with an expanded show schedule planned for 2024.

Dylan Peace, KKFI 90.1

"Liney Blu's latest EP, Pennsylvania St, is an amazingly down to earth, yet out of this world collection of alternative, soulful jams that I really love, especially Deadend, such a hopeful, beautiful song that I've kept in my personal rotation. The lyrics are very inspiring, and hit a personal note for me in many ways, (Liney's) voice is absolutely stunning, and there is so much attention to detail in this whole EP, it's definitely one of my favorite local works."
