Known for her passionate, driven performances this powerhouse vocalist delivers a blistering mix of contemporary & old school blues. Lovely will be supported by a tight group of stellar Portland musicians, featuring Robbie Laws and Peter Dammann on guitar, Dave Fleschner on piano and organ, Carlton Jackson on drums and Tyler Smith on bass.

Karen Lovely shot onto the blues scene out of the Pacific Northwest like Stack O’ Lee’s .44 placing 2nd at the 2010 International Blues Challenge followed by three Blues Music Award Nominations for BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES FEMALE ARTIST, BEST CONTEMPORARY BLUES ALBUM and BEST SONG for her sophomore release STILL THE RAIN.

In just over a year, Karen has completed 4 successful European tours playing to packed houses and sold out shows in France, Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Her performance at the 44th Internationale Jazzwache in Burghausen, Germany was taped for broadcast and began airing on German TV in December 2013.

Lovely is a two time “#1 Pick to Click” artist on XM Radio Bluesville and has just been selected to be the 2014 Featured Blues artist by KJZZ FM in Los Angeles. Lovely’s records have topped the national blues and roots charts and made the Top 10 favorite artist list for dozens of nationally syndicated radio stations.

Karen is currently working on 10 MILES OF BAD ROAD, her highly anticipated third studio release of contemporary blues with Grammy winning producer Tony Braunagel and the legendary Curtis Salgado. The CD is expected to launch this spring.

    Would love to see a great blues artist like Karen Lovely, and since I play in a blues band, I feel I’m qualified to judge. Saw her at the Waterfront Blues Festival this past summer and became a big fan. I have been hoping for a chance to see her again.

    Firstly, this event benefits a great cause! Also, my father is visiting me for the first time in Portland and I’d love to show him the best of the city. He’s a jazz lover and I can’t imagine how surprised he would be :)

    Tonight is my last night of a ten day trip to Portland and I would live it to end with a bang at Jimmy Mak’s, listening to great music. I have heard this is the venue to hear music in this city!
