Biography

Karen Carroll, singer, songwriter, musician, Chicago native, started singing in church at 6. She was taught singing theory by master Robert Allen and got it down by vocal coach Nate Griffin. Karen worked with Lonnie Brooks, Albert King and The Freeman Bros very early in her career. It goes without saying that all along her career, she was supported by her mother Jeanne Carroll (respected, world wide Jazz artist), in which she had her first professional gig at age 14. Since the early 80’s she has appeared with Katie Webster, Albert King, Carey and Lurrie Bell, Rudy Rotta, Otis Grand, Willie Kent, Steve “Big Man” Clayton, Alvin Lee, Mongo Jerry, Mississippi Heat, Buddy Guy, Deitra Farr, Bonnie Lee, Eddie Clearwater, Sammie Fender, Eddie Shaw, Angela Brown, Billy Branch, Melvin Taylor, Lonnie Brooks, Byther Smith, Johnny B. Moore, Sugar Blue, Buddy Miles, Zora Young and many more musical wonders. Singing gospel since her childhood, often enjoying the company of Mrs. Willie Dixon’s and his wife Ms.Karen Carroll is an authentic performer of The Great American Deep Blues. Appearing twice at The Chicago Blues Festival;, first in 1995 and later in 2008 at the request of blues master B.B. King she blew them away. Karen turned to Europe in 1998, touring with many different bands, creating and leading some. Today she works solo or with different groups, she with a stormy applause from the audience. She is begining to miss home/America and she is talking about returning.
