"So laid back that to listen to it, you risk slipping a disc - delightful. A genuinely heartfelt homage to the profound allure of bossa nova." Jazzwise
"Sensually funky and soulful." Jazz UK
Australian born Karen Lane sings NANCY WILSON AND OTHER LOVE SONGS. Since arriving in the UK 15 years ago, Lane has worked with some of our finest musicians including Tom Cawley, Andy Hamill, Robin Aspland, Martin Shaw and Geoff Gascoyne amongst others. She has released five albums, most recently "Two Steps from the Blues" and has performed all over the world.
Lane brings refreshing revamps to standards such as 'Lullaby of Birdland' and "Love Me or Leave Me". Her arrangements, driven by groove or counterpoint, reflect Lane's heritage as a soul singer in Sydney's Kings Cross area in the 1990's and her evocative vocals blend traditional resonances with decidedly modern inflections.
She has a love of Brazilian music and released a dedicated Bossa Nova album "Taste" to excellent reviews.
