A distinctive presence in the NYC Americana scene having performed at the legendary Rodeo Bar and beyond, Karen Hudson wins audiences over with her edgy wit, elegant stage presence and wry, insightful tunesmithing. Hudson has been compared to Rosanne Cash by The Village Voice, and to early Linda Ronstadt by 3rd Coast Music Magazine in Austin, Texas. On her third CD “Sonic Bloom,” produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel, Hudson explores some gothic territory, but refuses to be held hostage by her loss, so even her darkest songs are tempered with wry humor. The musical roots go deep and broad — it’s ‘Americana’ for people who like to mix The Rolling Stones with their Patsy Cline. She has opened for Madeliene Peyroux, Walter Salas Humara and Pete Seeger. More recently, Hudson hosted two annual Linda Ronstadt Tributes to the 1978 album, Living in the USA. This years'  packed show at the Triad Theater included more of her hit songs including “You're No Good,” “Blue Bayou,” Trio's “The Sweetest Gift” and some country rock gems with Brooklyn Country's Katie Curley (also produced by Roscoe Ambel), Sarah Kinsey, and guest singing talent included Sam Brown, Stephanie Marie, Rebecca Turner. Jeff Hudgens on sax, and Jaden Gladstone on fiddle.
