Karen's Bio

Hi there! A little about my and my music.

I am a composer, singer/songwriter and musician living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

I am currently studying at Macewan University as a Composition Major in the Bachelor of Music in Jazz and Contemporary Popular Music program.

I perform as a soloist as well as in ensembles and bands. I perform Country Music and Classical music. I love all kinds of genres and I compose in for many different ensembles.

In 2004 I formed a group called The Crow Girls with my good friend Julie Golosky Olmsted. Together we recorded a CD entitled, "Where the Green Grass Grows". This release went on to win an Native American Music Award for Best Folk Recording. We also received a nomination from the Canadian Folk Music Awards for Best Aboriginal Songwriter.

I've travelled from Gwangju, South Korea to South Africa playing music. I've also performed in The Netherlands, Belgium and the US. 

I will be recording some new music (finally) in the next while and so hope to have new tunes available for listening.

Thank you for taking a moment to read and see my page!
