"Vocals that twist and snap with tension and emotional depth"
Americana/Alt-Country songwriter Karen Jonas knows how to tell a story. Her new album The Restless is a stunning collection of dreamy and dark alt-country confessionals; a deep exploration of love and vulnerability from one of Americana's most hopeless romantics (Holler.Country). With vocals that twist and snap with tension and emotional depth and a dynamic band, it's no wonder Karen is turning heads all around the world (Country Music People, U.K.)
Flanked by her longtime guitarist the inimitable Tim Bray, bassist Seth Morrissey and Seth Brown on drums, she dazzles with energy that showcases their nine-year touring chemistry and the true joy of their art. Karen has released five full-length records and is a three-time Wammie (Washington Area Music) Award winner for Best Country and Americana Artist, Mid Atlantic Song Contest winner, Ameripolitan Award nominee, and official SXSW and UK Americanafest Showcasing Artist. As Parklife Mag DC put it, the voice of country music in the DMV is a big, bright voice that belongs to Virginia native Karen Jonas.
