Portland based blues artist Karen Lovely has been called a “force of nature” by Oregon Music News. A big hit on the main stage at this year’s Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival, her soulful vocals and dynamic stage presence frequently draw comparisons to Etta James and Janis Joplin.

Backed by a stellar band, this powerhouse vocalist delivers a blistering mix of contemporary & old school blues. Lovely’s standout performances have garnered awards, critical acclaim and standing ovations at festivals and venues throughout the US, Canada and Europe. This is a rare opportunity to see her at home in Portland.

    Because Karen Lovely is Awesome. That’s why. Do you need anything more then that? I had the pleasure of meeting her at “The Ladies of The Lehrer” and not only is she a powerful singer, she also has a beautiful personality.
