Karen Gibson Roc is an astonishment. This Los Angeles-based (by way of Jamaica, Canada and Brooklyn) poet and musician is fierce and fearless. A musical chameleon, she calls herself a “poetist” or poetic vocalist. Karen Gibson Roc is so committed to what she is doing, she even dreams in rhyme !
After the release of her album „Touching The Soul“ on Lemongrassmusic in 2008 the song „Painted Room“ soon made its way to countless Lounge compilations and radio shows and lead into the release of the Painted Room Remixes EP. The big success of this song which is a collaboration track of Lemongrass producer Roland Voss and Karen Gibson Roc has inspired the Voss brothers to work with Karen further and so they have produced 4 outstanding songs which can be found on the Lemongrass album „The 5th Dimension“.
Karen’s fans are happy to see her new album “The Cool Of The Day” which was released on September 21st, 2012.
