She has performed all over the globe as a featured soloist.  Having graced the stages of such prestigious venues as the Apollo theater, Carnegie Hall, The Taj Mahal and China's Forbidden City and others, she has traveled to over

50 countries to entertain audiences, covering a

range of music styles.  As one of the early elites of 

the evolution of the contemporary violinist,

the award winning musician has been an

inspiration for many aspiring musicians. 

Clever arrangements on covers such as
Freddie Hubbard's
"Little Sunflower",

Rimsky Korsokov's "Scheherazade",

"Amazing Grace" and Coolio's
"Gangsta's Paradise" have not been

ignored. She easily covers an array

of genre's on the instrument

from gospel to jazz to

R&B to pop, hip hop

and classical pieces,

all re-imagined in a way

that suits her skillful

and soulful swagger

on violin.

Currently regarded by many as

one of the most legendary

violinists of our time, Karen
has continuously proven to

be an asset to any projects

that she's participated in.


To date, she has recorded

two independent solo projects

(Amazing Grace and

Soulchestral Groove)

with a third one entitled,

"Sonic Woodwork" coming out

soon in 2024!
