19 year old singer-songwriter Karen Hardy is releasing her debut EP on June 30th, 2017, featuring five new original songs that she dreamed up in her bedroom.
Her sound is that of the pop genre, with soulful vocals. This EP is a representation of the past four years of her life, spent growing up in New Jersey, before she moves to Nashville in the fall to focus on her songwriting. Her EP release show will be on July 1, 2017 at La Crepe French bakery in her hometown of East Brunswick, New Jersey.
Karen has always had an affinity for music, growing up listening to classics like The Beatles and Carole King. She was, in part, inspired by her grandfather, who was a trained opera singer. At 16 years old, Karen decided to leave public high school to pursue an diploma online, in order to spend more time with the craft she loves.
This summer, Karen will be playing in the New Jersey and New York area at train stations (specifically Hoboken, Secaucus, Union) and local coffee shops to grow her fan base. Her songs will also be playing on local college radios following the release of her EP.
