Wiki

"FitzGerald's music has become even more lyrical, as in the opening ballad "Remembering," that begs for words by Gershwin. This is delicate, elegant music with suspends, holds and intelligent use of space between notes, as in "Winter's Flight." FitzGerald states in the liner notes, "I have always loved the rain, feeling that it calls out a more tender, emotional side of my being, connecting me with the natural world and with my heart." That heart connection is obvious, not in a flourish, but in a loving understatement, rich in color and flow. She dances playfully along on "Summer Rain" and has round somber bottom end to the more minimalist "Moods." George Winston comes to mind on works like "Emergence," and there is a delicacy that will carry you away on "Lullaby," a misty, quiet closing to this music beauty. Contemporary solo grand piano is delivered in flowing accurate statements. A hidden gem here in the Northwest."

Karen cites George Winston and Liz Story as major influences on her music, and while those influences are certainly there, the voice is Karen's alone. The music is intensely personal, but is also …
