A Class Act Debut at The Hampstead Jazz Club!!
Originally from Perth, Lane Hasself produced 6 albums to critical acclaim. Her debut “Once In A Lifetime” (2002) garnered the attention and positive reviews of the International jazz press and radio play in the UK, Japan, USA and Canada.
When Karen first hit the UK Scene she was quickly recognised by Michael Parkinson regularly being featured on his BBC Radio and Jazz FM.
Lane plays piano and is an accomplished songwriter. She has a love of Brazilian music and released her second album “Taste” described by JAZZWISE as: “So laid back that to listen to it, you risk slipping a disc – delightful. Perfect for those balmy summer evenings – a genuinely heartfelt homage to the profound allure of bossa nova.”
In 2018 she released her 6th album PASSARIM in Paris at the Sunset Club, followed by a support slot for Deodato at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club. Career highlights have included International Jazz festivals, regular slots at Pizza Express Jazz Club, and selling out the main room at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club. Karen has been delighted to find herself singing in places she’d never imagined she would visit: including Sicily, Portofino, Nice, Monte Carlo, Evian, Berlin, Cape Town and Bucharest.
Dave Gelly in Musician Magazine said:“I know of no one else who sings with what I can only describe as her demure abandon. It’s wholehearted but at the same time restrained, precisely phrased but not over studied, a fine and distinctive singer.”
” A lovely singer …Highly Recommended” – BBC Radio 2 UK – Michael Parkinson
“Resembles Astrud Gilberto in some kind of unannounced encounter with the MJQ. She swings gracefully on ‘Devil May Care’, and is sensually funky on a soulful ‘Love Me or Leave Me’.” Jazz UK Magazine – John Fordham
