Singer & Songwriter Karen Jacobsen, the original Aussie voice of “Siri” in a billion devices returns to Claire’s Kitchen fresh from the world premiere of her pop orchestral work MISOGYNY OPUS, setting Julia Gillard’s iconic speech to music word for word. On the go between her new home in the Whitsundays and her former base New York City, be entertained and inspired by Karen's powerful vocals and impactful storytelling. Her piano driven and timeless melodic songs just might include the Sydney premiere of the single Better Standard Than This from the Misogyny Opus. Harry Connick Jnr called her “hypnotic” on his national U.S. talk show, and you can expect a classic Claire’s evening of sparkling entertainment and divine dining. “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.” - Richmond Shepard“ “What a powerful and EPIC piece. Needs to be shared far and wide. Thank you for raising your voice in such a creative way” - The Speakers’ Director I was brought to tears when I heard (Ready For What I Came Here For) live. It resonated with me so much I felt almost like the song was written for me.”- Ellie D, Radio Boss @ OzNow Radio.
