Karen Jacobsen is a passionate, inspiring and dynamic singer songwriter, transforming the world one song at a time. Aussie born and New York based, Karen has shared the stage with Norah Jones, Christopher Cross, Jars of Clay, Three Dog Night, Deborah Cox, Cyndi Lauper and her songs have been heard on Dawson's Creek and NBC. Her new, self-produced CD Kissing Someone Else is filled with upbeat, timeless piano-driven pop songs, and was released by Kurly Queen Records on January 24th, 2007 with a performance at Joe's Pub in New York. Whether she's alone at the piano, with her six-piece band, or performing the national anthem in a stadium, Karen captivates the audience. Her life is all about making a difference and doing it now. The music video for her new single Melting Moments was inspired by Karen's recent experience in Africa performing for 250 children living in extreme poverty, and includes footage of that performance. She proudly combines her charity work with her music, believing if we focus on our similarities instead of our differences, we will live in a world that works for everyone.

Jed Ryan PM Entertainment "Her voice triumphs over heartbreak with strength...her lyrics express the complex simplicity of relationships" Bill Biss Buzz Magazine "...be prepared to lose your heart to Jacobsen, or at the very least, leave singing her lovely, melody-driven songs."
