about

Karen Savoca Oneida, New York

Karen’s baby diary reads, "20 months, knows 6 songs." Her mother, a big band singer, was not surprised to find her constantly dancing and singing.

"A voice with this much strength and easy confidence is a rare find. Her songs are filled with good humor, sensuality and nature's simple pleasures. She can work a sly smile into a lyric that makes you smile in spite of yourself." All Music Guide
