Biography

"You'll surely appreciate a wide-openness, subdued by a smokiness that suggests Jane Monheit, even occasionally Diana Krall."
-Christopher Louden, Jazz Times

"Karen Egert is the kind of rare jazz artist who really understands the meaning of the lyric she sings . It's a pleasure to work with her."
-John Pizzarelli

"Egert swings right into "That Thing Called Love", her voice like smoke wafting over the beat. She is sultry, she is satiny, she's a stylish songstress.... a singer who knows her stuff"
-Elizabeth Alhfors -- Cabaret Scenes

"Egert swings right into "That Thing Called Love", her voice like smoke wafting over the beat. She is sultry, she is satiny, she's a stylish songstress.... a singer who knows her stuff"
-Elizabeth Alhfors -- Cabaret Scenes

Karen Egert, jazz singer and pianist was born in Brooklyn, but grew up in the suburbs of Long Island, NY. Karen showed a talent for music and a love for performing at an early age. In high school, her chorus teacher and mentor, William Westcott, was the first to introduce her to the great singers and repertoire of Gershwin, Cole Porter, Hoagy Carmichael, and Duke Ellington, which started her on her course towards pursuing a career as a singer.

Karen attended SUNY New Paltz and graduated with BA in Theater Arts. After graduating, she landed a spot as a lead vocalist touring in the Cabaret style show band, Tiffany, performing in major resorts and hotels. After two years performing on the road, she then headed for New York City.

She quickly won a role in the musical revue the S.P.Q.R. Cabaret on Mulberry St. in Little Italy - singing and dancing to Broadway and songs from movie musicals. Karen played several roles – most notably Judy Garland, where she brought the house down with her rendition of "The Man That Got Away".

While still performing in the S.P.Q.R., she attended an open casting call of thousands for a new Broadway show being directed by Joe Layton and produced by Dick Clark. It was from this open NYC casting call that Karen landed a principal role on Broadway in "Rock And Roll – The First 5,000 Years", playing the role of "Cher". Singing on a backdrop of mulit- media settings, performers impersonated singers from Chuck Berry on. Karen performed "I Got You Babe" as Cher as well as other artists during those years in rock music.

Karen then became the lead vocalist and songwriter for The Flirts, a female pop group that had a hit song called "Don't Put Another Dime In The Jukebox,". After joining the group, she became their main songwriter and their second big release "Impulse" was one of her original compositions. They enjoyed national radio airplay as well as their video highlighted on MTV.

Continuing her work as a singer - dancer, Karen performed in shows on cruise ships and sang with the ship's Big Band Orchestras.

Upon returning to NYC, Karen Egert found her true niche, as a solo jazz singer-pianist. She enjoyed a two year run at the at the Sheraton Center in New York before landing her outstanding 5 year run at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel where she played nightly in the Cocktail Terrace and the Peacock Alley Lounge on Cole Porter's piano. Entertaining audiences on a regular basis gave her the opportunity to develop her style, her repertoire and her own voice. There were many notables in the audience, and on one memorable night Stevie Wonder was in the hotel. He heard her voice coming through the lobby and was so taken by her singing that he was drawn into the Peacock Alley and spent the entire night listening to her perform. As he was leaving the room , Karen began singing his song "Overjoyed" performance. Taken by her performance, he then concluded the evening with a spontaneous hour long set of his own. "It was probably the most memorable and magical moment of my life. It was an amazing thrill" says Karen.

Karen currently sings at the New York Athletic Club, a NYC private membership club on Central Park South. Its historical lounge is reminiscent of the great jazz supper clubs. There, Karen brings in listeners who are drawn to her honest lyric interpretation, unique voice, and musical style. Karen also performs her shows for private parties and corporate events.

Karen Egert has released two CDs - "Let's Get Lost" and "That Thing Called Love". Both CDs have been distributed and sold in Japan and are available in the U.S. through iTunes, CDbaby.com, and various other digital downloads through CDBaby.com

Her latest CD has been heard nationwide on Jazz radio stations and most notably on the internet radio show of Jonathan Schwartz.

Karen has also has the distinction of being written up in two published books on acclaimed jazz singers - " Entertainment: Diva, Cabaret, Jazz, Then and Now: Including Who's Who of the Greatest Female Singers of All Time", by Maximillien J. De Lafayette, and "The Jazz Singers: The Ultimate Guide", by Scott Yanow. Both are available at Amazon.com and Barnes and Noble.

Karen Egert performs regularly at the private New York Athletic Club in Manhattan and can also currently be seen at various clubs and hotels in the Metropolitan including the Waldorf Astoria.
