Karen Lee Andrews presents powerful blues and soul that is entertaining and vulnerable – a journey where Karen shares her artistry and story with her audience.

Karen Lee Andrews has a strong sense of artistic purpose. Surrounded by music her entire life, Karen’s career to date has primarily revolved around classic soul and rhythm and blues. The influence of soul, gospel and Karen’s Polynesian background continues to inform the music she creates. Karen’s new EP ‘Edin’ takes a more comprehensive journey through soul and blues music while candidly expressing her identity.

Karen’s songcraft is built on a thorough knowledge of blues, gospel and soul music and driven by an undeniable hunger to connect. Yet the defining ingredient is Karen’s unshakeable artistic passion.

A massive festival favourite backed by a formidable world-class band that provides an exhilarating live performance.
