(Airlie Beach, Whitsundays, QLD AUSTRALIA – September 23, 2021)
After an unexpected year in her native Australia, usually New York based international voice-over artist, singer-songwriter and motivational speaker, Karen Jacobsen celebrates the release of her new album READY FOR WHAT I CAME HERE FOR on November 4th, 2021.
CINEMATIC PIANO-DRIVEN POP SONGS
Ten cinematic, piano-driven songs with powerful female vocals and inspiring messages; the new album READY FOR WHAT I CAME HERE FOR is the music with a message the world needs right now.
The title track is an expression of her quest to make a difference and find deeper purpose in life. Produced by Matt Anthony (Darius Rucker, Shinedown, Pat Monahan of Train) at Engine Sound in New York City, recording began in September of 2019 before the interruption of the pandemic. After almost a year, video sessions and remote recording enabled the completion of the record between Karen's new location half a world away near Australia's Great Barrier Reef, and Matt's studio in the North-East of the United States (9560 miles to be exact).
VOICE OF GPS
Jacobsen’s speaking voice reached pop culture status when she became the voice of the GPS and the original Australian voice of ‘Siri.’ This led to the creation of the empowerment brand The GPS Girl® and speaking engagements about “Recalculating" life. Her family Recalculated and relocated personally in 2020 heading to Australia for what they thought would be several weeks while the pandemic blew over. Now based at the edge of the Great Barrier Reef and the 74 tropical islands of the Whitsundays in North Queensland, Karen has showcased the beauty of the area in a series of music videos with a local creative team.
