1984 Karen Blake – Just One Heart

Karen Blake began her singing career while studying at the Athenian School in Northern California. Launched by the sudden and unexpected applause of her classmates while she was absent-mindedly singing along with a Joni Mitchell song on the radio, Karen progressed quickly to weekend gigs in Berkley CA playing guitar and singing with one of her schoolteachers. Moving back to her stomping grounds, Karen continued to sing all over LA with a trio called Souvenirs, creating tight three-part harmony to Andrews Sisters songs and other tunes from the 30’s and 40’s. During this time Karen began singing songwriting demos for publishing companies, becoming the singer of choice for many of LA’s top songwriters. (source:http://karenblakemusic.com/)
