About Karen Thurber
Santa Barbara, CA
Karen labels herself as a multi-genre song stylist and unlike most female artists Karen's vocal influences were mostly male. With a deep alto voice she was more able to sing along to the likes of Elton John, Paul Simon and Lowell George. Their vocal gymnastics interested her to develop a soulful and dexterous style all her own.
Karen's eclectic ear and percussive sensibilities move to the groove of many genres and she has an ability to make them sound connected, fresh and new. Her debut CD In a Dream, includes tracks that rock, swing and groove with edgy introspective lyrics and a unique sound that is drippin’ with vibe.
