Surely it must now be time for the unquestionably talented garage/soul singer Karen Harding to imprint a foothold on the music scene.
Since, it has been the case that Karen has been hovering around the point of making it, and previously brushed with the big time opportunities of firstly participating in group stages of Eurovision selection when she was just 18 and again reached the bootcamp stages of X Factor 2013.
Perseverance and determination all look set to pay dividends now as matured and learned of assistance from Grammy nominated, seasoned pop prodigy MNEK comes through via co-write duties and production on Karen’s stunning 90’s house debut “Say Something”.
Tastemakers like us here at EQ and the public alike are now beginning to recognise Karen’s vocally commanding performances might have the capabilities of possibly gravitating forth into the stratospheric realm comparable of Whitney Houston’s powerhouse vocal stature. Since it is the case that Karen impresses with her use of dynamics as much as she does with quality of performance and vocal range.
This year has seen much attention given to emerging female vocalists housed in the urban fused trajectory of dance based genre’s, coming through strongest from the likes of Kiesza, Jess Glynne and Ella Eyre. I am definitely of the opinion that on the strength of this debut alone Karen Harding will most probably be one of the hot new name’s on everyone’s lips come next year, in as much as she is currently the hot new name inked with Disclosure’s affiliated label Method Records.
Seriously, our final words on “Say Something” are simply – that is it all kinds of fully loaded delish and that we consider Karen Harding to be a future dance diva with staying power.
