Award-winning Contemporary Blues Artist Karen Lovely is putting the finishing touches on her 5th album, Fish Outta Water, a swampy, funky mix of all new original Blues and Americana and the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed Ten Miles of Bad Road.

On Fish Outta Water (Forty Below), Lovely has continued the advocacy and outreach she started with her previous albums, Still the Rain, and Ten Miles of Bad Road, by writing songs that raise awareness about important social issues like domestic violence, sexual assault, homelessness, suicide, mental health and addiction and because she believes in a zero tolerance world, 10% of every dollar raised over her Pledge Music goal will go to RAINN, the national organization dedicated to ending domestic violence and sexual assault.

For her Pledge campaign, Karen organized a fantastic assortment of exclusives, both merchandise and experiences. In addition to autographed copies of the new CD, fans can pledge to receive: a personal ‘Happy Birthday’ video message, a disposable camera filled with pics (taken by Karen), a photography calendar, handwritten lyrics, their name in the liner notes while one lucky person will be the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind hand-painted hat.

Fans can also attend a BBQ/acoustic concert at Dockweiler Beach in Los Angeles, a private listening party in her hometown of Portland or even have a one-on-one songwriting session at a recording studio (PDX or LA).

To check out all the offers, please visit Pledge Music.

As we look forward with hope of a brighter new year, Karen wanted to share a personal message:

Every day is a new opportunity to be the person you want to be…another chance to be kind, to be fair, to be understanding and compassionate, gentle, patient, and tolerant, creative, wild, free.

LOVE – if your heart gets broken, it will heal…time heals all wounds and wounds all heels.

DANCE, even when your feet don’t want to…

SING – it’s not about what you sound like to others…it’s about how good it makes you FEEL to be yourself.

BE – be there for others, be kind to yourself, be open to understanding.

LIVE with all your might.

To all of you who have made me laugh, cry, care, think, and hope, this past year, THANK YOU.

Thank you for letting me be a part of your own life adventure.

I wish everyone peace, joy, love, and happiness, understanding, compassion, tolerance, a mind free from fear, and a heart open to light.

I wish you zeal.

In Our Bones turns 1 today 💞
🥂
With what this album, and the band Against The Current, means to me, today is a happy day to celebrate!
✨
Over the past year, IOB was the soundtrack to my life, at the core of adventures near and far, physical and metaphysical, spiritual and unbelievable.
✨
In addition to my love for the music, the words expressed and sentiments conveyed resonate deeply. I've learned a great deal about life, love, and myself. It's been a transcendent journey!
✨
In Our Bones is in my bones, my heart and soul.
A light that shines Forevermore.
∞ ⭐️
The first 7 episodes of Season 2 of Against The Current were absolutely brilliant!
The adventures undertaken and the magic of those days/nights will be remembered forever. I had so much fun!

ATC is on a mid-season break though I'm looking forward to some fall/winter episodes. In the meantime, I may find myself daydreaming about cherished moments w/ my favorite band.
💗 💡🏠
Happy Mother's Day!
Just arrived to Boston where I'm wrapping up one of my favorite weekends ever and am reminiscing about one of my other favorite weekends ever, one I shared with my Mom. She always wanted to go to the NE in the fall to see the changing leaves in all their glorious colors and I always wanted to visit Boston and Vermont so we made a long weekend of it (also scoped out New Hampshire). She's also a fan of lighthouses so we went to Nantucket one afternoon. The weather was perfect and the island was charming. We had a great time. When I talked to her today, we reminisced and talked about where to go on our next trip. I miss her but I'll be seeing her soon. 🤘🏻🤘🏻
Last two nights with Against The Current at Irving F*ckin Plaza were an absolute blast!! They were AMAZING, the crowd was super hyped...it was so much fun! Hearing Gravity, Runaway, Running With The Wild Things, Roses and Wasteland in NYC made it truly special! Will forever remember these 2 nights.
