Karen Jonas

Karen's new album showcases a full band conjuring up the dusty old west, and features boot-stomping originals that just might stomp your heart in the process. Her sultry vocals have some fans swearing she's stolen their hearts all the way from the stage.

Full Band Fun, New Review, and a busy weekend ahead!


We had an awesome show on Saturday at the Colonial Tavern here in Fredericksburg! We’re looking forward to getting more full band dates on the calendar. This photo is by David Hall from our opening band Cabin Creek. 

Lonesome Highway calls Oklahoma Lottery “an outstanding debut release that promises much for the future for Jonas and for those who still seek the truth in music” in this new review.

Tim and I have a busy weekend coming up - starting with a rooftop bar at Vivify here in Fredericksburg on Thursday and then heading up to Maryland.

Music lives!!!
