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.

▪️this is massively important▪️
we often wear wigs
masking thorns in our twigs
as we try to exist
with twists that persist
🔻
my cloak of invincibility
at times, gets jiggy
as it wobbles
pride gets swallowed
emotion runs wild
equanimity exiled
serenity defiled
🔺
i want to seem perfect
as i hide behind the curtain
i may be a wizard
but i'm not invisible
to the effects of the eternal
i am self-aware of who i am
and want to become a better man
i apologize for my failure
to heed a helping hand
i was hurt at first
fretting the worst
my mind swirled
perceived judgement being hurled
while it took a minute
to fully digest it
your wisdom and insight
showed me the light
it may be a chronic plight
but i'm ready for the fight
to live a beautiful life
thorns, warts, hogs and all
❤️
::thank you for showing me love:: 🥑🥑
te amo avo
guacamole cannoli can be extraordinary
jus don't get crazy wit da gravy
holy. moly.
i shoulda gon ez on the frijole
ya catch my whiff?
ya know what i bean?
lo siento por el overflow
the ancho de mi poblano
si no bueno.
i was totally out of lime
marinating takes time
the recipe was easy peasy
ingredients are you and me
and gravity makes three
a pinch of pepper
a dash of salt
jalapeño, serrano, sriracha
or whateva captcha grabs ya
we can always rearrange
when flavors become passé
the song remains the same
808s to keep you safe
frequencies so crisp
texture so rich
that when life adds
too much cilantro
our guac in the throe
of messico al fresco
i will hold fast
with tomatoes that last
baron avogadro
against the undertow
a stow of ripe avocado
like gnocchi on heaven's door
profiterole to keep us warm
in the eye of the storm.

⚓️ 🐻🐻
Before the risin' sun, we fly
So many roads to choose
We'll start out walkin' and learn to run
And yes, we've bearly just begun 💗
This was waiting for me upon my return home from a highly successful business trip. My heart is overflowing with joy + happiness. I love my niece and nephews so much!
