Karen has a small, sweet voice - small but perfectly formed - and her renditions here of nine of her own wistfully, tremulous songs create a meditative mood. With her excellent, expressive piano and co-producer Mike Giddins providing creative and varied accompaniments the effect of worshipful introspection is maintained throughout. If you're looking for wistful, meditative music Nottingham-based Karen has created a delightfully delicate offering to sooth the soul.

Heard your song Echo on pray as you go today.
Have been listening to your material on apple music.

Thank you for sharing your gifting to help create a space where we can become more aware of His presence.

Your voice has a real "Carpenters' velvet tone to it - thank you.

Keep writing and giving your gift away,

Tom

Hello, the song ďFallen into youĒ is such a gift. Can it be played on a guitar. If so, could someone share the chords with me. Thank you, Diane Miles

Hi Karen

I have just listening your voice on pray as you go today and inspiring by your prayer as that how I seen your music and lyric I have downland your album Secret Things. I love some of your songs and I must admit few years ago I have adopted one of them call Surrender and sung on few occasion in my catholic parish in Slough. I hope you don't mind that.
Am a polish girl who came to England 32 years ago and I have dedicated my voice to glorifies the Lord from my earlier age and am still carry on if am let to sung in church. I love your song Fallen into you and if is possible I would like to learn sing that and playing on the guitar so if you don't mind is the any chance you can send me lyric and guitar chords. Maybe you can also share other lyric and chords with songs which are on that Album I would be so greatfull.
My husband is a Catholic permanent Deacon and some time am let to sung during baptism so would be nice to have one extra hymn in the treasure to sung for Lord.
May God continued to blessing you and growing in His love sending you lots of inspiration words through HOLY SPIRIT to glorify His Name

God Bless you and your family.
In loving Spirit and unity of Lord Jesus

Many thanks
Love

Hi Karen, I am really enjoying your songs ~ I've downloaded Secret Things from ITunes after hearing, first "Golden Day" and later "Surrender" on the PAYG app, which I am finding so refreshing in their variety of music. I would love the Lyrics and Chords to Golden Day if possible. Thanks. Annie B

I love "Surrender" --thank you for sharing on Pray As You Go -- I have listened to it many times. At the moment I am trying to find your song "She Carries Me" -- it was used in a sabbatical program I attended and I would like to purchase a copy of it. Would you be able to help me out? Gratefully Sr. Elizabeth


Reply by Karen in Devon @ 07:37 on Mar 6 2016

Dear Sr Elizabeth, thanks for your kind message. : )

Unfortunately though 'She carries me' isn't one of my songs and I can't seem to find any info on it. ' it might be best to ask the people who arranged the sabbatical program for more info. Good luck! Hope you find it!

All the best, Karen. 😊

Dear Karen, I just wanna say what a beautiful, meaningful song of you. When I heard your song thru Pray-as-you-go website it really touched me so much.. What a God-incidence! The day I heard the song - Echo on 7 Jan 2015 remind me of my dying friend who was passed away the next day 8 Jan 2015.... 2 days before he passed away (6 Jan 2015), I went to visit my friend who were on Nebulizer machine.. The next day, I heard the Echo song and the next day, my friend passed away.. The lyrics really strucked me coz it really matched with the last condition of my friend just before he passed away peacefully on 8 Jan 2015. From now on, this song became my daily prayer as it remind of the breath & life that God has given me at the very moment.

Hi Karen. When I heard "Echo" on Pray As You Go, it truly echoed through my head all day! I picked up my guitar a couple months ago and would love to try this one, though I have a feeling the chords will be out of my league, lol. Guess that's my way of asking for them, please! :) Blessings, ~p
