Karen Lynne, Australian Country, Folk and Bluegrass artist announces the release of her sixth album in her growing independent catalogue, which now includes three solo albums and two collaborative offerings. One of these features Sydney Bluegrass band Acoustic Shock and the other, singer/songwriter Pat Drummond.
The album is titled The Singles, and is Karen’s first compilation album of singles released on Australian radio from her five albums to date.
Karen comments It’s been well over 20 years now since I started out in my musical career and after all those years singing and five albums, I think I’ve ‘earned my stripes’ so to speak, and the right to present a compilation album. I guess you could say it was a kind of celebration of my years singing and recording in the industry and a really nice summary of me and my musical journey so far. Also by using the singles released to radio over the years, it means that the listener gets a snippet of some of the best tracks from each of my albums, all on one disc.
As Karen has always skated between Country, Bluegrass and Folk, it is a great album for first time fans who may not be familiar with her many styles. It has also been packaged for use as a great promotional tool for any media personnel wishing to understand more about her music and not only contains 15 tracks, but includes a detailed discography with biographical and album information, individual track chart placings, award information for each album and a video clip as well.
