This album is the first collaboration between husband and wife Karen Ann Hunter as writer/performer and world renowned session guitarist Steve Hunter as producer.
Karen was born in a small village called St Mawes in Cornwall, United Kingdom, she was brought up by her mother alone until she was 10 at which point she got a great stepdad.
Karen has performed and written songs since she was 5 years old. Spending many years on the road with bands of all genres’ she has also performed on recording sessions for TV commercials, major artists and producers, including Gary Numan and Giorgio Moroder.
Steve and Karen married in 2007 at Beverly Hills County Court and spent their honeymoon at the LA Zoo, they now live in Phoenix AZ.
‘Empty Spaces’ was Steve’s idea after Karen had stopped both performing and writing. It was with his encouragement that she wrote the first song on the project called ‘Whatever’. It was also his idea to record Karen on a very close microphone making the best of her naturally warm voice.
Karen has two adult children who reside in the UK; some of the songs were inspired by her love for them and her parents who now live in Spain.
There are lots of ways that people can identify with the lyrics on 'Empty Spaces'; they are both personal and global, whimsical but sometimes painfully reflective and moving.
