Karen Swan was awarded a 'commended' position for her song 'High Flyers' in the contest which is now in it's seventh year.

Check out Singer Songwriter- Karen Swan on the internets youtube site:

She has a stunning voice, with shades of Sheryl Crow and Joni Mitchell.
There are some pretty neat accompanying videos as well. Her songs range from the darkly disturbing 'Victim' to the bouncy, bubly 'Perfect Girl' and the beautifully haunting 'Awake'.

My music is a reflection of life, in my words.When I was a child my father, who was southern Irish, used to tell me stories about the 'Faery Folk', and other Irish tales, this captured my young imagination, metamorphosed and emerged as the urgent need to 'storytell', in song.
