'Karen Rush writes catchy (dare I say unforgettable?) rock songs, and sings them in a rich mezzo that's unlike any other voice you've heard...' --Jon Sobel, 'Thirty Years On' - THE CULT OF JANIS, June 2000 To pinpoint Rush's distinct sound is a lot like trying to figure out that mystery ingredient in a new dish you just tried...Might there be a recipe for her vocal style, it would probably go something like this: Take the pop/rock flavor of Sheryl Crow and marinate with haunting undertones a la Emmylou Harris or Sarah McLaughlin...Add a pinch of Alanis' quirkiness and then pepper with the grit of Patti Smith. Consistent only in it's fluctuation between brazen and angelic, Rush's singing parallels the spectrum of moods explored in her introspective songwriting. *** 'This CD is one of those golden nuggets that you stumble across and suddelnly you find you're rich. Karen's vocals are fearless, beautiful and expressive. She can stir your deepest emotions...Highly recommended' --Allen Foster/ SONGWRITER'S MONTHLY - APRIL 2000 *** '180 Degrees is an excellent demo on all fronts. It is actually album quality in every way, and would stand up nicely against most of the female balladry in Top 40 rotation today...This demo practically screams for major label release.'--Peter Kuehbauch, GOODTIMES Magazine, June 15-28, 1999.
