Born in New Jersey, daughter to a big-band singer, Karen moved to a mountain top in upstate New York at 13 where her poetic nature thrived and her life as a musical 'farmer' began. Said Bob McKillop of Mainfolkmusic.com, 'Karen Savoca lives her life down in the dirt. . . . Her songs and her music are her seeds, and her rich, supple, creative vocal style is her hoe.' Greg Brown, with whom she collaborated on several albums said of Karen, 'If she were a Native American, her name would be Sings Like Two Birds.' Karen and her partner Pete deliver what Dirty Linen calls, 'An addictive blend of hybrid pop with lots of jazz whimsy and slippery funk,' with Pete contributing his transcendent guitar to their signature sound.
