A word from Karen: Thank you for visiting my web site. I’m very pleased to announce the release of my new CD, Here and Now. This is my third album, and I believe it reflects “where I’m at” in my life… I’m a little more comfortable in my own skin, married and deeply in love, still earnest but a little wiser, still curious and maybe a little more courageous. Nine of the songs on this CD were written by me. I had the honor of recording two “covers” for this project: Susannah Clifford Blachly’s “Hope Begins in the Dark” and Carol Abair’s “Chelsea.” I am very grateful to both of them for their inspiration and friendship.
I would also like to thank Colin McCaffrey, my amazing co-producer, and the fine musicians who joined us in the studio for this project: Craig Anderson, Susannah Clifford Blachly, Peter Engisch, Adam Frehm, and Brendan Taylor.
