It’s hard to believe it’s been five years since we first met Miss Murphy on The Voice. Since then the season two standout has shrugged off her moniker and started releasing music under her own name, Karen Lee Andrews.
The name might be unfamiliar right now, but her soulful voice is unmistakable. I wish I could share her new track “Higher,” the first from her new EP Far From Paradise, with you in its entirety because it’s such a great track. It’s got a classic soul meets blues meets rock feel that makes me think of Janis Joplin, albeit with a smoother, huskier delivery. See what I mean in this song snippet.
