It’s 2019! Playing for my sponsor Journey Instruments at NAMM again, demoing their awesome ukuleles. Always a great time. There is simply nothing quite like the NAMM Show experience.

Looking forward to another awesome year of musical adventures! In the meantime, take a look at Journey Instruments’ adorable sitka spruce soprano – it’s so sweet! You can check out my demo here.

I am truly honored by the love and support of all my LA fans and new fans I continue to meet and connect with.

You guys rock!  ~xo

January seems like yesterday, is it really almost May? :) If you haven't checked out Journey Instruments' latest ukulele editions, head on over to their page and have a look. Journey has designed a beautiful suite of ukes, from their littlest sitka travel soprano to their gorgeous mahogany and sitka spruce tenors, all are beautiful, versatile and extremely playable! #playjourney #ukuleles #travelcases #guitars www.journeyinstruments.com ...

Finger-pickin' uke-jam on one of my favorite Mindy Smith songs... test driving the new Journey Instruments soprano travel uke. They've designed a brilliant, slimmed down, go-anywhere ukulele with premium appointments you don't typically find on travel ukes – Sitka spruce top, Meranti mahogany body, arched back, scoop cutaway for the high frets, Aquila Strings plus installed pickup and strap pins – tiny package, big perks! :) Why compromise when you can #playjourney #loveit #journeyinstruments #goodtogo #ukelife ...

Reviews, etc.

“A track like Stuck on You is the perfect example of what Reed is going for with [True North]. Simple strings provide the background for a nice upbeat romantic song. It’s the kind of the thing tailor made for a TV commercial or something similar. This is Reed’s versatility; she can do upbeat or she can do Starry, Starry Night, a beautifully articulated acoustic piece that eases me to peace like few tracks I’ve heard in many years. Again her sense of melody is superb and it shows on several of the tracks on this admirably assembled album.” More »

“Of particular note amongst her many musical skills is Reed’s voice, which effortlessly conveys passion and soul at one turn, wry humor at another and bright optimism with equal grace.” More »

“We need Karen Reed; she is a true example that following your dream and doing what you love can be an inspiration to many.”
