"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

"The End of Time" from my recent album has won Best Jazz Song in the World Songwriting Awards, spring 2022!

An added bonus! Three other songs from that same album, "When We're Together" were Top-10  finalists for the World Songwriting Awards! "Feather and Bone" for best jazz song, spring 2021, "A Song for Mississippi John Hurt" for best blues song, summer 2021, and "Gamecock and His Hen" for best jazz song Fall 2021! 

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.

What a thrill all 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.
