Karen Harding is a Melbourne-based folk/pop singer-songwriter who just recently released her debut EP – I’ve Got A Secret, a set of 4-tracks that showcase her understanding of human emotion and her life experiences. Today, we take a look at the final track from the EP, “Letter To My Friend”. Karen is inspired by artists like Eva Cassidy and Sarah McLachlan, and incorporates their conversational style of creating music in her own way through her music.
Karen introduces “Letter To My Friend”with her favourite acoustic guitar to accompany her soulful voice – “I’m sorry for the words you’ve been told / It must hurt to know it’s unknown”. She pens a message from a place of inner reflection and expresses herself brilliantly right from the first note of the song. The light guitar progression supports Karen’s charming vocals and adds to the overall emotional feel. The track progresses with soft strings that emphasise Karen’s heartfelt lyrics; very deep and soothing to the ears.
“…and at night when your head hits your pillow / dream of the things you’re still left to do”
Karen’s moving performance on this track really hits all the right spots. It’s great how her instrumental supports the inspiring vocals here. With the minimal production and alluring melodies to accompany her folk-inspired voice, you can really hear that she cares. She expresses herself beautifully throughout and nails the ending with an expressive build-up section decorated with stronger rhythms and cinematic cadences; almost theatre-like and very passionate.
