Single Release: Ready For What I Came Here For - May 21st, 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 the first single from her album READY FOR WHAT I CAME HERE FOR. 

Written after the tragic death of a close friend of her husband, the song is an expression of the quest to make a difference and the search to find purpose in life. “READY FOR WHAT I CAME HERE FOR'' is the 1st track from Karen Jacobsen’s 10th studio album, produced by Matt Anthony (Darius Rucker, Shinedown, Pat Monahan of Train) at Engine Sound NYC. 

While recording began pre-pandemic, the cinematic piano driven song takes on new meaning in this time in the world. When asked about the message of the song, Karen said “For many of us, 2020 has been a jolt, and yet an opportunity to take a stark look at our lives and what we want to experience. I personally know dozens of people who have made big decisions about their futures; from where they will live to what they spend their time doing. It’s been an era of getting clear about what is truly important.”
