"Karen Mal's songs are like the old-time remedy that mixed honey and lemon. They are sweet without being precious and have a lasting bite to them that makes them both memorable and good for you. Add a voice to match, and you have a musical panacea, curing our ills and adding to the grace of living." - Michael Jaworek, The Birchmere. Karen worked in regional theatre for several years before settling in Austin to play music full time. This CD is a folk/bluegrass production with thoughtful songs and seductive vocals. "I am in awe of Karen's singing. Her voice is one of those rare gifts that make singing seem effortless." - Slaid Cleaves, Rounder recording artist.
