Winnipeg-based, Karen Hammarstrand's music is reminiscent of 60's folk, with jazz and blues leanings. Written from deeply personal as well as universal perspectives, her signature emerges in pared-down lyrics combined with clean, often subtly complex progressions delivered in a warm, smoky voice. On June 25, 2015, Karen released her debut CD, Late Blooming, which includes ten original songs. A smorgasbord of grooves, the CD covers musical ground from blousy New Orleans blues to smooth bossa, from gentle ballads to rock/pop, and from bluegrass and folk to country.
