RE: Karen-Lee Batten Releases Debut Video "Hearts On The Run" On CMT

"Karen-Lee is a talented artist with a killer voice and a sparkling, infectious personality... she's beautiful inside and out."

- Dayna Bourgoin, Music Director CMT Canada

VANCOUVER: Karen-Lee Batten, Canada's, fastest rising independent female artist has proven that when a door closes a window opens, all you have to do is find the "YES". Thursday April 24th marks the official launch date of Karen-Lee's debut video "Hearts On The Run" on CMT Canada.

Independently filmed and funded, Karen-Lee along with good friend Trevor McWhinney, (producer, Needlefish Films), and Steve A. Adelson, (Director, The (2) Headed Monster), filmed the 2-day shoot in some of the BC's most beautiful coastal areas: Kits Beach, North Vancouver and Spanish Banks.

Shot July of Last year, Karen-Lee's debut video captures not only the beauty and talent she holds in a promising career, but expresses her time, dedication and energy she puts into every project.

" It has been such an amazing and humbling experience. To have this project come together and be so well accepted by CMT, radio and the fans it is unbelievable", says Karen-Lee.

"As an independent artist there tends to be some hoops and red tape you have to go through, but nothing drives me more then achieving my goals. I wanted to show how much I appreciate having everyone's help and support, so made the trip out to CMT and hand delivered the video. I guess this just proves that being stubbornness isn't all bad."

"Thanks to all my family, friends and fans, for continually supporting, believing and being apart my journey. This video is the best way I know how to show my appreciation." commented Karen-Lee.
