The Borderline
Orange Yard off Manette Street, London

Karen Young, considered one of Canada's great jazz singers, has been invited by CIRPA (Canadian Independent Record Production Association) to perform their London Calling showcase “Canada Presents Canadian Blast!" Introducing material from her upcoming album with composer and bassist Eric Auclair, the showcase will be held at The Borderline on June 19th.

Voice and double bass in duo is a favorite jazz combo. Powerful, rich and lace-like textures, delivered beautifully by Eric Auclair's sampling, pre-recorded and live, are used as sound-track to Karen's crystal-clear voice and poetic songs. ElectroBeatniks, the title to this duo concert and upcoming CD, brings their jazz into the 21st century. Now in the final stages of post-production, the album is scheduled for an early fall release, followed by a series of concerts featuring this unique jazz/electro fusion.

Considered one of Canada's great jazz singers and Fusion/World specialist, Medieval music autodidact, songwriter, composer, arranger, Karen Young's vocal range and control and her passion for music have enabled her to attain success in various musical genres. Awarded Artist for Peace in 2003, Karen also received RIDEAU Career Prize the same year - Quebec's venues and events programmers professional association.

Album producer/coproducer, Karen also wrote, composed or arranged her eight CD titles under her label URSH Records since its inception in 1992, among which Canticum Canticorum - a specialized Medieval / Mediterranean / Jazz Fusion CD than sold almost 10,000 to date in Qubec only.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
