Live Video Performance: Vision Australia Carols by Candlelight, Melbourne, Australia
Press / Reviews
If you haven't yet heard or heard of Karen Jacobsen you soon will. The striking silky-voiced Australian singer songwriter...diva from down under...whether Karen is singing about the joys of life and love or the more bitter sweet aspects of romance, her delivery is always infused with sheer passion. Her voice is strong and compelling, and her lyrics are pure, honest and accessible, yet they evoke the entire spectrum of human emotions...Ms. Jacobsen is one of the most "natural" performers that New York City has seen and heard in a long time.

"The quiet passion of her lyrics and voice casting a spell over the room. Despite the stormy weather, this was one of those perfectly marvelous Manhattan evenings. Karen Jacobsen is a wonderful "gift from Down Under" to New Yorkers and to all music lovers and lovers of all kinds!"

- Musical Discoveries
“A super musical performance: Karen Jacobsen, in a spectacular gown, is beautiful, funny, a lovely light- fingered pianist and a terrific singer with a fine clear voice who writes melodically original personal songs giving glimpses of her life and relationships. She totally engages her audience with her charm, her voice and her wit and she can hold a note like Jerry Colonna, It’s a treat to be entertained by this talented, lovely woman. Catch her if you can. It’s one of the best performances of the decade.”
