Karen Elson - The Ghost Who Walks

Before a week ago I only knew Karen Elson as the wife of Jack White. Recently I saw a small write up about her upcoming album The Ghost Who Walks on Brooklyn Vegan.

She's gotten a bit of negative response which I don't think is necessarily fair. There seem to be a lot of people who think she's only getting the opportunities that she is because she's married to Jack White. That may be true, but I've listened to her sing. She has a nice voice, and I really enjoy what I've heard so far.

Below is a live acoustic version of the title track. The single is being released on March 17th and the 12 track, full length album is set to be released this summer on Third Man Records.

Karen will be performing at SXSW on March 20th and Manhattan’s Le Poisson Rouge on Bleeker Street, Monday March 22nd. This show starts at 7.30pm and tickets can be purchased on Le Poisson's website.
