About the Artist

This singer-songwriter has been performing in the GTA for a number of years primarily as a solo artist.  Karen started playing piano at age 12 and by the age of 15 she was writing and performing in local coffee houses.  Her father was a part-time drummer and singer who’s repertoire included all of the Big Band favourites and crooners of the 40’s. This greatly influenced  Karen’s musical styling and writing.

 As a child of the 70’s there are some folk and soul influences in her songwriting as well as the jazz voicing she learned from the standards. Over the years Karen has fronted her own jazz trio, R&B band and sang with the Russ Little Big Band, recorded jingles, and performed back up for other artists.  Karen continues to write and perform her own music; her latest CD is a collection of originals entitled “Rain Down On Me”.
