Karen Jonas is an Americana singer/songwriter from Fredericksburg, Va. Her intensely personal songwriting first grabbed national attention with the release of her critically acclaimed 2014 debut album Oklahoma Lottery, and international praise with her second album, Country Songs. Five years of non-stop touring have produced a smoldering live act that’s culminated in her latest album, Butter, which debuted strongly on both the US and UK Americana charts. She’s shared stages with Dale Watson, Alabama, Joe Ely, Bob Schneider, The Lone Bellow, Brandy Clark, Robert Earl Keen, Amanda Shires and dozens more—lighting up venues around the country from intimate house concerts and listening rooms to rowdy honky-tonks and outdoor festivals.
