Album Notes
No one expects their life to change course overnight, let alone in front of a live audience – but that’s exactly what happened to Karen Reed. After nearly 20 years running her own interface design firm, Karen dusted off her guitar, picked up the ukulele and started making music. Maybe it’s her unlikely “it’s never too late” story, maybe it’s the thought-provoking and clever way she writes, her deceptively simple style, or the way she sings like you’re the only other person in the room... but something is definitely moving people – and lots of them – to listen to what this artist is putting out.

It all started late one February evening when she chanced to play a newly minted song at a party. The song caught the attention of singer-songwriter and acoustic guitar virtuoso, Janet Robin (Lindsey Buckingham, Meredith Brooks, Air Supply) who offered to record it for her. Karen agreed to what she thought at the time was simply a fun opportunity. Next thing she knew she was performing at local Los Angeles acoustic venues to standing room only crowds and embarking on her first full record, with Janet Robin as producer, engineer and contributing musician.

Karen’s story is a testament to what’s possible when you’re willing to take a leap and head down a new and uncharted path – and her musical journey has only just begun.

“True North” features a first class lineup of talented contributors on guitar, bass, drums and percussion with Karen herself playing acoustic guitar, banjolele and electric guitar as well as her trusty ukulele. Janet Robin’s musicianship and razor sharp producer's ear shine through in the way the songs are arranged and performed, and the diversity of styles presented showcase the breadth and depth of Karen’s talent. Our hats go off to this dynamic artist/producer duo for an outstanding musical debut.
