“Fiddler's Elbow - Camden would like to thank Karena K and their fans for a fantastic night. Brilliant live set and hopefully we will see you back there soon!”
Seann - Manager, Fiddler's Elbow
“Karena K is a small lady with a huge voice and she kicked off playing sax while her band steamed into ‘Let My Baby Ride’. When she started singing she suddenly seemed a lot taller – no small voice this one. She has grit as well as soul in her voice and the feel of Joe Cocker at his best but she also has delicacy in the vocals as well. The set featured a stirring ‘Battered And Blue’ but the real highlights were all drawn from her Northern Soul roots – a knockout ‘Tainted Love’ shorn of all the Soft Cell angularity and a version of ‘The Letter’ that was all about Joe Cocker’s style but still kept the truth and feeling of hope in the Boxtops version. The set was well received and it was easy to see why she has been shortlisted for awards in poll after poll.”
Andy Snipper -Music News
"Wonderful set by some very talented musos"
Noel Nevin - (Owner) The Cavern, Raynes Park
