NYC singer-songwriter Karen Hudson has been compared to Rosanne Cash by The Village Voice and to early Linda Ronstadt by 3rd Coast Music Magazine in Austin, Texas, “. . . albums like “Silk Purse”, which Lester Bangs found to be ‘brimming with passion and vulnerability, tremulous, yet possessed of a core of absolute strength,’ words that can easily be applied to Hudson. An important difference is that Hudson writes her own songs.”
On Hudson’s third release, “Sonic Bloom,” she digs deep down in the dirt to exorcise demons and give herself permission to blossom and thrive. Karen Hudson's musical roots go deep and broad—it's Americana for people who like to mix The Rolling Stones and Byrds with their Patsy Cline and Johnny Cash. “Hudson’s matter-of-fact vocals carry the lyrics with passion, soul, and rich dynamics, from an insistent wail to a warm, caressing timbre."
