She has been performing and composing for over four decades of her life.  Karen Briggs has performed and/or recorded with everyone from The Royal Philharmonic to Yanni to Stanley Clarke to Diana Ross to Ledisi to Kirk Franklin to Annie Lennox to the Wu Tang Clan! 

 

She has performed all over the globe as a featured soloist.  Having graced the stages of such prestigious venues as the Apollo theater, Carnegie Hall, The Taj Mahal and China's Forbidden City and others, she has traveled to over 50 countries to entertain audiences,

covering a range of music styles.  As an early elite in the evolution of the contemporary violinist, the award winning musician has been an

inspiration for many aspiring musicians. 

Clever arrangements on covers such as Freddie Hubbard's "

Little Sunflower", Rimsky Korsokov's "Scheherazade",

"Amazing Grace" and Coolio's "Gangsta's Paradise"

have not been ignored. She easily covers an array

of genre's on the instrument from gospel to jazz to

R&B to pop, hip hop and classical pieces, all

re-imagined in a way that suits her skillful

and soulful swagger on her instrument.

Currently regarded by many as one of

the most legendary violinists of our time,

Karen has continuously proven to be

an asset to any project that she's

participated in.

To date, she has recorded

two independent solo projects

(Amazing Grace and

Soulchestral Groove)

with a third one entitled,

"Sonic Woodwork" coming out

soon in 2024!
