Karen Elstone, otherwise known as SopranoSister, grew up in Etobicoke with a love for all things rock While the classic rock hits played on the radio and vinyl, she dreamed of being a rock star. She did not take steps to truly pursue her dream until later in life, after deciding that administrative work left her with a void. She went back to school to study voice at both Humber College and York University,where she earned an Honours Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in ClassicalVoice. But rock and roll continues to be her real love. She is also influenced by the blues and folk. Inspirational musicians include: Sarah McLachlan, Sheryl Crow, Alanis Morissette, The Pretenders, Led Zeppelin, Indigo Girls, Melissa Etheridge, Heart, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Pink Floyd (to name a few). Karen is mainly involved in music for the joy it gives to her and to use her artistic talents to their fullest. She is happy to be able to create music and gives back to the community by teaching privately on a casual basis. She sings at open mic events as well. Karen is writing her own songs, and has developed an album of original songs that she has online. In 2017, she plans to perform live at cafes, private events, and perhaps more festivals in southern Ontario, She performed at the Culinary Ontario Festival at Ontario Place on May 20, 2017. She is currently working on new material for a second album that will include two cover songs that she enjoys performing from artists who have inspired her. Karen also loves the theatre and hopes to produce a musical or cabaret-style production in the future. Performing on stage is Karen's number one joy, as well as helping others to realize their talents. She enjoys sharing her knowledge with others. She plays guitar, harmonica, piano and has recently taken up drums. She is definitely hands-on, when it comes to music and wishes to set up a bigger home studio eventually...
