KAREN REED burst onto the LA music scene with a fresh blend of folk-rock and blues performed with a unique guitar/ukulele-inspired flair. Playing to sold out audiences at local venues, she has cultivated an avid following of listeners who enjoy a night of fun, friends and live music with a message all can relate to. Her songs run the gamut from heartfelt to hilarious, taking audiences on a spirited lyrical journey through the technicolor landscape of life and love. Artistically, KAREN's sound is reminiscent of the warm earthiness of SUZANNE VEGA, the pop-island groove of JACK JOHNSON and the tell-it-like-it-is authenticity of MARY GAUTHIER or PATTI GRIFFIN. Her debut record, TRUE NORTH produced by singer-songwriter and guitarist JANET ROBIN (LINDSEY BUCKINGHAM, MEREDITH BROOKS, AIR SUPPLY) features 10 original songs as well as an instrumental cover of the DON MCLEAN classic, VINCENT (STARRY, STARRY NIGHT) on ukulele.
