Karen was born and raised in Mifflinburg, PA and enjoyed every opportunity to sing through school. After graduation and singing at many weddings for friends and family, she entered a competition at Knoebel’s which led her to performing for over 20 years with Dean McNett and McNett Country. Since recording two solo CDs, “Stuff That Matters” and “No Stranger to Heartache”, Karen is now playing with a local original country pop band, Pages of Paul. Having the opportunity to perform as an acoustic duo with Mark Tomeo has been a great adventure and learning experience. “You can’t create what you don’t dream…” and Karen is happy to dream of singing in every venue presented to her.
