Karen Lovely
Waterfront Blues Festival
Portland, OR.
July 3, 2016

I'm in the process of moving after 36 years in the same house an am not going to be able to record as much this year. I'll try to get all the major acts and some favorites I've had over the years. Again, KBOO FM is broadcasting the show live. KBOO is an all volunteer station. They started last year breaking in at odd times to let listeners know what stations are broadcasting. Weird. All proceeds from the festival go to the Oregon Food Bank so please donate if you can. They also have a live stream on the internet. It's an MP3 stream. My set up is an old Technics Quartz Tuner> H2 Zoom> SD card> computer> TLH.

With the release of her newest album TEN MILES OF BAD ROAD (released last fall), Lovely has established herself as a singer/songwriter with a style uniquely her own. She's been nominated for a prestigious 2016 Blues Music Award for �Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist� and in December, won a 2015 Blues411 �Jimi� Award for �Best Contemporary Blues Female Artist.�

LOVELY is a two-time �#1 Pick to Click� artist on XM Radio Bluesville and was selected as a 2014 Featured Blues Artist of the Year by KJZZ FM in Los Angeles. Lovely�s records have topped the national blues and roots charts and made the Top 10 favorite artist list for dozens of nationally syndicated radio stations.

Known for her passionate, driven performances, this powerhouse vocalist delivers a blistering mix of contemporary and old school blues. Lovely's standout performances have garnered awards and critical acclaim at festivals and venues throughout the US, Canada and Europe.
