Karen has been singing professionally both live and as a studio artist for 20 years.

From the moment she joined her first original band as a singer at 16 yrs old, she was hooked!

Her gorgeous angelic folk voice, and a love for performing, saw her performing every weekend at weddings, engagement parties, christenings, churches etc.

For 14 years she co-owned Backbeat Studios with Channel 7 Adelaide's senior sound engineer which they used to record and develop Karen's singing and songwriting craft - and professionally, to compose commercial music and record CDs for artists/bands. Karen has a wide range of experience as a producer, composer, arranger, lead & harmony singer. She plays keyboard and a variety of wind instruments such as celtic tin whistle & baroque recorder.

She has continued to write songs and develop her talent all her life, using the keyboard as her writing instrument and her voice as a tool to express the poetry in her heart.

She has recorded two original albums, one of which received recent interest from Sony and Shock records. She is currently gigging in Adelaide in a cabaret style piano duet, performing wonderful covers from 50s - 70s.

As an original songwriter she was a finalist with her band 'Urban Myth' at Battle of the Bands' competition for SAFM Adelaide, performing at Heaven Nightclub. And as a solo artist, performing at local venues such as Norwood Food and Wine Festival, Grace Emily, Governor Hindmarsh, Gaslight etc.

Some of her studio work includes singing on Peter Combe's 'Wake Up it's Christmas' album, and she has written and recorded commercials and theme songs for Channel 7, SA Tourism, and Backbeat Studios.
