ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Songs of relationships with nature, wonder and spirit. I gifted myself a guitar to strengthen my wrists after an injury, while finding chords that resonated with me these songs emerged.
Thanks to Mark Sepic for his multi-instrumental, engineering, recording talents and humor in helping me flesh out my ideas into this album.

Reviews
“Stories 2018” marks another brilliant collaboration for the talented Karen Richards and the multi instrumentalist, Mark Sepic.
Stories of community and family plus the pervading idea that feelings process a ripple through the universe and never die, they reverberate forever just as this album will do in your memory banks.
The songs are thought provoking and imaginative.
Some images are very sensuous and oh my, Karen and Mark create a rich tapestry of sound to enhance her melodies and fascinating lyrics.
Put on this disc, put your feet up and enjoy a nice brandy or your favourite drink and be ready to embark on a musical journey that is both fresh and timeless.
A new classic to add to your collection!

Karen’s voice is gentle yet rich in tonality… like a wise woman, reminding us how the fabric of life is filled with stories, spoken or unspoken….to form a beautiful tapestry of movement and meaning!
Karen’s song “Water World” captures the movement and power of the ocean’s belly, heaving and crashing into sprays of water in the sunlight.
I see myself walking along a pier, stretching out into the ocean!
She captures a light and airy mood on a sunny day! The song transports me into Water World, which is such an amazing feature of our planet!
Posts: Sitting in the subway or streetcar…. I look around and see everyone’s head looking down into their cell phone, texting away….I imagine the connections everyone has, to someone they love….. Looking at the meaning everyone looks for, heartstrings are our connections to people, even though these days, we may only get as far as laying ourselves bare through our posts… we still try to connect!
“Stories” evokes the image of a magic wand, tapping on people’s heads lightly, as stories are released into the universe! Everyone has a story to tell, contained in events and lives lived, experiences felt….some are never told, hidden in our hearts but love gives them a truth and a reality that keeps them alive in the universe! I feel the magic of Karen’s song… her voice is gentle yet rich in tonality… like a wise woman, reminding us how the fabric of life is filled with stories, spoken or unspoken….to form a beautiful tapestry of movement and meaning!
Honoured:The music in the background is like a waterfall and Karen’s voice rides the notes like a current….. following the path of the waterfall to capture moments, reflecting the content of the text…. This song reminds me of the integrity found in the stream of each moment in time…. Sometimes weary or conflicted, but often surprised and honoured at what unfolds in life! Musically this song is a window into the moments that make up our lives…. Keeping an open mind to what awaits us, just around the corner… there is always something worth living!
Part of Me is initially tentative, then slowly leading to a full declaration of the senses, Karen’s voice evokes memories and sensations full of delight! I am transported to a Caribbean island, it is nightfall and I am sitting at an outdoor ocean-side patio with a gentle warm breeze sifting over me into a slowly dimming sky full of stars….The day has been full of adventure…. Hawks guide the chestnut stallion to explore this new world of fire and earth, of cedar trees and junipers…. A bonfire near the ocean remind me of my dreams, sparkling into the heavens… as I enjoy this relaxing moment!
