Album Notes
Karen Savoca’s eighth release, I SHOOK THE TREE, is a provocative collection of 12 journal entries, exploring the mysterious rooms of the heart through tales of love, betrayal and rebirth. Savoca confronts a world that too often rewards selfishness over kindness, and narcissism over empathy. (Her tongue-in-cheek alternate title is “What I’d Say If You Were All Dead.”) She laughingly says, "Songwriting is cheaper than therapy." Recorded in their 19th century renovated church with longtime partner, Peter Heitzman, I SHOOK THE TREE features the soul stirring bass of legendary “Groovemaster,” Jerry Jemmott (BB King, Aretha Franklin, Greg Allman).

Daughter of a big band singer, Savoca’s baby diary reads "20 months, knows 6 songs." Pouring her heart into a song the way a great actor throws herself into a role, Savoca draws you into a world of humor and compassion with grace and ease, as though you're sitting at her table for supper. Acoustic Guitar magazine calls innovative guitarist, Peter Heitzman, "A true virtuoso of groove, with a sly touch that, combined with Savoca's in-the-pocket drumming and spectacularly soulful vocals, gives the duo the impact of a four-piece band."

"A voice with this much strength and easy confidence is a rare find. But that's not where Savoca's talents end. Her songs are filled with good humor, sensuality, and nature's simple pleasures. She can work a sly smile into a lyric that makes you smile in spite of yourself. Open up and let her in." - All Music Guide

Winners of seven SAMMY Awards, producers of their own CDs, Savoca and Heitzman have also produced two albums for iconic songwriter Greg Brown, who says, "If she were a Native American, her name would be Sings Like Two Birds “.
