The best kept secret in music

Press


"Maybe Karma should have been born 30 years ealier. She would have fit right in with the likes of Janis Joplin or Led Zeppelin. With her sexy hippie threads and rock star good looks, not to mention her ferocious stage presence, Karma would be right at home playing Bill Graham's famed San Francisco nightclub The Fillmore circa 1970."

- San Luis Obispo New Times


"Not since I first heard Beth Hart has an artist made me sit up and scream! HEY THIS CHICK FRIGGIN ROCKS!! I just got to see her live. Keep rocking Karma"



- NTG Radio - All Women All Day!


"The band is tight precise and hot, a perfect compliment to Karma's exhilarating vocal skills. Karma's voice is potent, and considering the emotion she puts into her vocals, she could be a contender"
- Music Connection Magazine


"Karma is returning live with her red hot band, to perform her entire new CD. If you've been looking for a reward for past good behavior, your Karma is here, and she rocks."
- Monterey Coast Weekly


"Who said rock 'n roll is dead on the Monterey Peninsula? You couldn't tell by the standing room only crowd for Monterey singer Karma who sang her current radio favorite, 'Superman', as well as scorching Zep and Cheap Trick covers during her extended set."

- Monterey Herald, GO


"Although it's a debut record, it strings together like a greatest hits collection and I must admit that I harbor fears about unleasing this pop juggernaut upon an unsuspecting public. Hopefully noone will get hurt."


- Producer...Karma's debut CD, The Offspring, Iggy Pop

Bio

Karma was named by her progressive parents, an Episcopalian Minister and a southern bluegrass singer. Karma's father's spiritual calling in the church took the family from Asheville NC, to Austin TX, to Panama, to Philadelphia PA, and finally to King City CA. Her mother was a professional singer whose love of the lyrical content of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and other singer song writers of the time had a deep impact on Karma. But, it was in junior high school in urban Philadelphia that Karma discovered music for herself and on her own terms. Her love of R&B was forged as she began cutting her vocal chops in church choir. That summer Karma's father uprooted and moved the family again, this time to King City, California to lead a congregation there. In King City Karma discovered classic roots rock, including Zeppelin which you can clearly hear as an influence on cuts like "You Can't Blame Love","They've Got A Name For You". And Janis Joplin on"Dragging Me Down"Shortly after graduating high school, Karma left home for Monterey, CA, driven to pursue her musical vision as a singer. It didn't take long before she was gigging every week, and winning loyal fans. Karma's voice and performances had an immediate impact on the Monterey area's music scene. A local music producer took note and brought Karma into a studio to record a four song EP. Two of the four songs became "top five requests" on commercial KCDU-FM radio in the Monterey / Santa Cruz / Salinas area. The next two years were giant steps. Karma worked in the studio on two independent projects with record producers Marc Tanner (Aerosmith, The Calling) and Thom Wilson (Iggy Pop, The Offspring). For the past year, Karma and crew have been hitting the road hard, winning fans in Sacramento, San Francisco, Marin, Monterey, Santa Cruz, San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Los Angeles counties. The end result is that Karma and band have developed into a powerhouse performing force that must be seen to believe.
Karma's new full length album was Engineered and Mixed by Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam) at Mad Dog Studios in Burbank, CA. During these sessions she gained the respect of her musical sidemen, blues harp great John "Juke" Logan (heard on "Heart to Stone" and "You Can't Blame Love") and master session keyboardist Skip Edwards(heard on most tracks). Also singing Karma's praises was the great backup singer Wendy Barnes.
Glen Starkey, music writer for the San Luis Obispo County New Times wrote; "Maybe Karma should have been born 30 years earlier. She would have fit right in with the likes of Janis Joplin or Led Zeppelin. With her sexy hippie threads and rock star good looks, not to mention her ferocious stage presence, Karma would be right at home playing Bill Graham's famed San Francisco nightclub The Fillmore circa 1970."
