      .."Karen Briggs is one the baddest and most entertaining violinist on the music scene! Her latest project “Soulchestral Groove,” embodies the near perfect ingredients that brings on the heat!"~ The Urban Flux........

      She was born in New York and started playing violin at age 12 in Portsmouth, Virginia's public school system. In 1987, she moved to Los Angeles and now is her time to shine!.. ..Often described as "that lady in red", Karen Briggs’ fiery performances on violin in the multi-platinum selling, "Live at the Acropolis" have been seen by literally millions of people around the world. In fact, the PBS special has been seen in 65 countries by half a billion people and is the second best-selling music video of all time behind Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'." ...

      Her Carnegie Hall debut as a soloist took place in 1997, when while accompanied by Pianist/Composer Dave Grusin, she participated in a fundraiser event hosted by Isaac Stern and Itzhak Perlman. She appears in the resulting classic family movie entitled, "Music of the Heart" starring Merle Streep, Angela Bassett and Gloria Estefan...

      Karen has toured with Stanley Clarke and drummer, Lenny White (Return To Forever), frontlining the group "Vertu" along with guitarist, Richie Kotzen (Poison) and keyboardist, Rachel Z...

      ..Karen's inclusion in various genres of music and artists has continued with Ledisi, Loose Ends, The Hopeville Tour/DVD with Donnie McClurkin, Yolanda Adams, Kirk Franklin, Mary Mary, Mike Phillips, Wynton Marsalis, Benise, Wu Tang Clan (Reunited) , Hidden Beach’s Unwrapped Series, Ledisi, Keb Mo, Soul ll Soul, No Jazz and currently partners up with Lao Tizer and Chieli Minucci...

      .. The Soulchestral Groove CD.... Enough 'co-starring!' Her current is out...featuring her skills as a writer, arranger and fiery violin ‘Soul-O-ist’! Sum up the equation... SOUL + ORCHESTRAL + GROOVE and you come by Karen Briggs' newest CD, "Soulchestral Groove!" .. The music exposes heart generated emotion through a soulful fiddler whose unique, melissmatic tonal expressions are ‘violin ear candy!’ She improvises through the colours with pizzacato, harmonics, orchestral layers and fire with a respectable skill, ‘funky’ elegance and an exotic attitude. Other standouts participants include keyboardist/arranger, Brandon Coleman, Bassist, Cornelius Mims (Euge Groove) and Percussionist, Munyungo Jackson (Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder) among the excellent accompaniment. .. ..

      The "Soulchestral Groove" CD can be purchased at CDbaby.
