A message from Karen:  "Delay is Not an Option" is on the album, and I  created a video for it, especially for the online show fund-raiser.  The song's video is on Youtube at:  https://youtu.be/bHelGbxX_-M

The song was written about a situation like this one in Ukraine. I offer that song free to anyone who wants it for fundraising or other help for Ukraine. I have charts available too if you send a note through my contact form below.
What a mess the world is in. It is hard to do anything "normal'. I am doing what I can.  



Audience comments from the first video showing in November:
"WOW! YOU KNOCKED IT OUT OF THE PARK!" ~ audience member

"The show was well-produced, Sound was well mixed and camera angles and fading were well done too. Accessing the show was easy and seamless."  - M C 

"Very, well done, the overall production was perfect. There was strong chemistry between Karen and the band and it was obvious they loved playing together. Karen’s intro to each song was one of my favourite parts. I really appreciated the insight Karen gave regarding her inspiration and the subtleties in the songs’ arrangements."  - S W 

"Karen and the band were amazing! What a great group of musicians. I loved the variety in the numbers. I think my favourite was "Breath", very touching."  - E S 

"Masterfully done. I was drawn in more than I expected for watching the show in a brightly-lit kitchen on an iPad."  - A M 

A message from Karen

One of my children's songs, October 31st, was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting  Contest, ISC!   Find it on my Music page for download.

An added bonus! Three songs from my latest album, "When We're Together" were Top-10 contenders for the World Songwriting Awards! Feather and Bone for best jazz song, spring 2021, Song for Mississippi John Hurt for best blues song, summer 2021, and Gamecock and His Hen for best jazz song Fall 2021!  What a thrill that is for a songwriter!  

Another new album will be released n the fall of 2022 if all goes well. 

I am grateful to be working with such wonderful musicians and friends, I think we laugh as much as we work. (Teaser: look for the pig duet in the second album.)   I hope you enjoy this original music.
