Album Notes
Singer/Songwriter Kari Tieger writes primarily about spiritual growth and relationships, sharing her unique perspective on life.

Compositions traverse seamlessly between the realms of dramatic gothic love songs, hopeful songs for the future, and neoclassic chamber music.

Kari is a keyboard/vocalist. She released this debut hour-long CD, "Touch of Magic," in December of 1998 (Tiger Sound), for which she brought in about 20 talented musicians.

Her music is an eclectic blend of contemporary pop with New Age, jazz, and classical influences.

Currently working with percussionist Ron Schmitt, formerly of the renowned Celtic group Pendragon and guitar/bassist Jon Brennan of Shryne, Kari is collaborating on and developing original material for possible future release.

She also transcribes, co-arranges and records with fellow composer Kevin Campbell, serving as his co-producer in the studio.

Being bilingual for a number of years, Kari has been accumulating a collection of original French poetry and songs, and completed work on and released an album in November of 2001, entitled "En francais, s'il te plait."

A member of ASCAP since 1989 (recipient of numerous popular songwriting awards), the Rhode Island Songwriters Association since 1993, and most recently Just Plain Folks online since 1997, Kari has made appearances on RI cable television ("Just Plain Folk," "Artists/RI," "The Don Lincoln Show"), received some airplay in the greater New England area, as well as in Europe, and performs at local festivals, bookstores and coffeehouses.

Kari made short tours to northern France in September 2000, and again in July 2004 to Paris and Aix-en-Provence. The most recent trip was to record and promote an upcoming 5-track release "Pas de Deux," a preview of her next full length album, "Nos Mots."

Felicitations Kari j'aime tes chansons, sutout en francais

Irresistible romanticism and dramatic flair, according to Ben Ohmart.

Touch of Magic

The song that really made me sit up and take notice was ‘Tu Demeures Dans Mon Coeur’, a beautiful cabaret event right in the middle of a spellbound crowd. I don’t know. I’ve never been the kind of person who could figure out what the next single off an album is going to be, because the AOM often sounds as good or bad as the Hits. But THIS time, oh yes. I know. This little French number carves itself right out from the other 19 songs. The tune, the soft arrangement of grand piano, violin, grand acoustic guitar, and whatever else might be in there supporting the smooth, unafraid voice, it’s a spellbinding effect. I can just see Kari in her best dress, standing in the middle of the ballroom. It’s a studio song, but I can hear the applause.

Don’t worry. It’s not a French album. (Those suckers who believe English is the only language in the world…) Most of the Magic is understandable, such as the follow up ‘If You Try’. Kari can write songs. She’s AWfully good at that. Sometimes I don’t dig the backing vocals, but that’s me. That ain’t her.

However, after the success of the first, I decided to punch my way to one of the next French tracks, no. 15, to have an audio gander at ‘Reine De La Nuit’, a poem with backing art music. It’s like having a brief moment in a smoky nightclub in Paris. And then. It is over.

Kari has a wonderful ability to create moods that are in the same arena, but are nowhere near touching each other. She uses her orchestration powers and vocals to their fullest, and transcends theatre, gothic, and personal pop in a way that makes it difficult to label. Therefore, I won’t. But I will suggest this one to all vocal hopefuls.

Oh, and the way she turns a lyrical phrase (putting in extra crunchy rhymes) reminds me of the stage most definitely.

"this is a lady I hope to be hearing more from."
Touch of Magic is a delight, I have listened to it many times, and it's one of my all time favorites. This is a lady I hope we will be hearing more from, and soon.
