Born in Texas and raised in Southern California, Karen Nash plays alt-country roots music with the skillfully crafted turn of phrase and topical content of a great folksinger. Known for her impassioned songs of social injustice and troubled love, Ms. Nash has captivated audiences from coast to coast.
In the late nineties, Karen vacated her apartment, put her stuff in storage, and set off on the road...just a girl and her guitar. During her years of nonstop touring, Karen amassed a collection of impressive reviews for her live shows and three CD releases. Over the last decade, she has played to enthusiastic crowds at festivals such as Acoustic Festival of Britain (UK), Lilith Fair, Telluride Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival, Tucson Folk Festival, and South Florida Folk Festival, and prestigious venues like Club Passim (Boston), Eddies Attic (Atlanta), The Troubadour (Los Angeles), The Cavern Club (Liverpool, UK), and The Stables (Wavendon, UK).
Karen is currently working on a new CD with producer/guitarist Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen/Tom Petty). She lives in Los Angeles with her husband Bob Malone and two cats: one good, one, well...not so good.
