Karen Lewellen On Making Music!!

I will never forget my first exposure to music and the way it transformed my world. Only the discovery of reading around the same age of three has had so great an impact on the person I am today. My influences, as my style suggests, are quite diverse including, but not limited to: Karen Carpenter, Jane Oliver, Carol King, Lena Horn, Dela Reace and Bette Midler. For their storytelling ability and versatility in song: Sammy Davis Jr., Frank Sinatra, Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. But I am influenced by all I hear just as by all I meet. I cannot list all of the creative spirits that color my own creating.

Almost all of my performances feature at least one of my own arrangements and increasingly my own songs. Whether the fun setting of Open Mics at Chez Suzette's or Women in Music Jam Sessions, I enjoy giving a new sparkle to a well-known tunes as well. Here are some of my recent performances:
