Karen And The Sorrows

Location: Brooklyn, New York

Bio: Singer-songwriter Karen Pittelman and steel pedal guitarist Elana Redfield paired with engineer Charles Burst at Brooklyn’s Seaside lounge to create the truly authentic alternative country sound of Karen & The Sorrows. The Names of Things, the debut album from the Brooklyn queer country band, is full of “haunting pedal steel work and unvarnished heartbreak.” (Bust Magazine) Voted one of the Freeform American Roots Chart’s best debut albums of 2014, the record is “some of the best alt-country being made. Twang-drenched drown-your-sorrows music about bad relationships, abandoned lovers and endless heartbreak. In other words, pure country.”
