Born and raised in Lacey Washington, Kari was poised to take in a variety of musical influences which helped her to arrive at her own style. Taking in the best of Rock, Country and Blues, she would go on to create an amalgam of these styles reflective of her upbringing. Moving to Montana during her teens and then to Puyallup Washington later, Kari found herself performing to disparate audiences of music enthusiasts, bring a little of each to the other, and eventually blending these styles for a distinctive, yet organic sound.
