The “Rock Doc” is back with her second album, WOMAN.
Karen Nielsen is a doctor who moonlights as a working physician, or possibly vice versa if her music career takes off. Her lyrics explore the dark side of life from a woman’s perspective. Each of the 11 titles is only one word. “Sin,” “Gun,” “Crime,” “Truth,” “Winter,” and others are the titles of her stark and raw stories. She is a rocker and her music channels such artists as Kate Bush and Patti Smith. It all adds up to an interesting, if at times painful, mix.
