A Study in Contrasts: Karen Mansfield Makes Her Recorded Solo Debut
by Laura Moetz
Karen Mansfield has been part of the New Jersey music scene for decades, yet this is her first official release. Guided by experience, it’s clear that Karen does things her own way and in her own time. Surrounding herself with the area’s top musical talent, her self-titled debut is being distributed on her own label, Willow Bella Music. Recently marking 25 years of sobriety, Karen’s confessional songwriting style celebrates the possibilities of the future while still acknowledging the temptations of a weathered past.
