The New Single THE SLIPSTREAM Release May 22nd, 2022

The Slipstream

Karen Jacobsen

I thought for a long time that there was a slipstream of energy to "get to" where all the magic is; and that I had to be a certain way to access it. I was trying hard to find it, not knowing where to look. The song THE SLIPSTREAM is about human struggle. It turns out the magic isn't "out there". It's accessed by tuning in to who you really are and

Melting Moments

"…be prepared to lose your heart to Jacobsen, or at the very least, leave singing her lovely, melody-driven songs." New York Press

Melting Moments is filled with songs that are catchy, melodic, timeless pop, kind of like Billy Joel would sing if he were a tall, blonde Australian Woman. Jacobsen wrote, performed and produced the record at Defy

"…be prepared to lose your heart to Jacobsen, or at the very least, leave singing her lovely, melody-driven songs." New York Press

Melting Moments is filled with songs that are catchy, melodic, timeless pop, kind of like Billy Joel would sing if he were a tall, blonde Australian Woman. Jacobsen wrote, performed and produced the record at Defy Recordings with Robert Smith in New York City, with top session musicians including fellow Aussie, Guitarist Ben Butler (Sting/Bruce Springstein/Suzanne Vega/Mariah Carey) and New Zealand’s Richard Hammond (Broadway's Hamilton/Joan Osborne/Erasure) who played Bass Guitar in her band for six years.

Karen Jacobsen has shared the stage with Neil Sedaka, Norah Jones, Christopher Cross, Cyndi Lauper, Jars of Clay, and her songs have been on U.S. network television shows including Dawson’s Creek, Passions and Around the World For Free.

Karen has sung anthems at major sporting events in the U.S., and performed Advance Australia Fair in her home state, Queensland at the TriNations Wallabies vs South Africa game at Suncorp Stadium in 2009.

“Melting Moments” was released on the Kurly Queen label on August 28th, 2009.

Press...

"Karen’s voice is pure and sweet. Listening to her, I was reminded of The Corrs; there’s that same joy and optimism to the songs. There are very few edges here, although the opening track “Kissing Someone Else” does hint at a darker side. To some the lack of grit may seem like a flaw, but I think there’s something lovely about an album which lifts you up rather than dragging you down. The playful “Merry Go Round” is particularly captivating, while “So Fast” is another folk-tinged pop standout.

This is a really polished album. I was impressed to see Karen didn’t just add her pretty voice, but her production skills and songwriting prowess as well. Both are excellent. With Melting Moments, Karen Jacobsen shows us that her talents go far beyond directing traffic." Lauren Katulka, Sounds of Oz

*This album was released in the USA in 2006 as Kissing Someone Else with an identical tracklist.

Take a Little Drive is an acoustic piano and vocal record about searching for love, finding solace in connection and the challenges of authentically saying what there is to say. Recorded at Avatar Studios and Defy Recordings and recorded, mixed and mastered with Robert L. Smith in New York City.

With a concert at Joe’s Pub at the Public Theatre in New York City, Karen Jacobsen celebrated the release of her 8th studio album, navigating the audience through a set of her catchy, timeless, piano pop songs and breathy vocals. Karen performed at the grand piano and welcomed special guest cellist Stephanie Winters.

An award-winning singer and songwriter pre-GPS fame, Karen’s musical career highlights include sharing the stage with Norah Jones, Christopher Cross and Spyro Gyra as well as singing The Star Spangled Banner at Madison Square Garden, Dodger Stadium and Giants Stadium (for 80 000 Jets fans).

Karen moved to New York City from her native Australia with a suitcase and a dream to follow in Olivia Newton-John’s footsteps. From 2000 to 2020 she built a new life and business in the big apple, recording, writing, performing and speaking.

Karen was moved to record this collection of songs after the events in Newtown CT on December 14th, 2012. “It was a deeply disturbing shock, especially having a son a similar age, and it became crystal clear to me it was time to record my next album and to be singing into people’s hearts again.”

Music is a powerful healer. Take a Little Drive is an intimate journey through spaces of the heart.

A collection of melody-driven songs with Karen's distinctively passionate vocals, the pop production of Here In My Heart proudly maintains the integrity of the Singer-Songwriter. Mixed by the in-demand Andy Zulla (Jessica Simpson/Backstreet Boys), and with tracks produced by Andy, Julian Harris and Karen, guest musicians include Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow/SNL), Ben Butler (Rod Stewart), Richard Hammond (Jonatha Brooke/Shannon Noll) and Max Surla (The Corrs).
