Album Review

Karen Paurus! What do you say to a Minnesota vocalist of the year, piano playing songwriter with an amazing voice when she calls? Sure, I'll make a record with you! I worked as guitarist with some arranging and producing functions and the creative freedom was perfect. Karen wrote some great songs and it was a total blast to record this music.
