Karen Solomon
Singer Songwriter

Born in the Deep South, my first singing gig was at the age of 7 in the choir of my Baptist church. After a Masters of Music Education from the University of Louisiana, I taught music while broadening my singing repertoire in jazz, pop and musical theatre.

 

I always wanted to live the life of a gypsy bohemian artiste but I was living in Louisiana! So in 1988 I strapped on my gypsy shoes and took off on a journey of song around the world. 

 

I washed up on the shores of Greece, and started a new life with many riotous years perfoming in a piano bar on Mykonos. Athens became my base for performing as a vocalist in jazz and pop bands, as well as solo work as a singer/pianist. In Athens I also taught music and coached up-and-coming singers. 

 

After 30 years as a professional performer, I have sung and played in just about every venue possible: piano bars, lounges in cruise ships, nightclubs, restaurants, wharves, yachts, halls...well just about any place with a piano. 

 

My song writing style is pop with a jazz influence and piano based theatrical pieces.
