Karen Lizotte is a New Brunswick-born, Nova Scotia-based, All-Canadian singer and musician with powerful vocals and a captivating stage presence. Her vocal performances have become a must-see in the music scene in Halifax over the past few years with gigs at popular venues such as Bearly’s House of Blues, The Carleton, and Casino Nova Scotia, as well as featured sets at several east coast festivals including a showcase at the Dutch Mason Blues Festival. Karen has recently recorded an original 5-song EP of sassy contemporary blues tunes which shows off her energetic songwriting side. Her recordings have been featured on the CBC radio programme Close To Home. She has also been vocally featured on the recordings of east coast blues musicians Buck Tingley, and Lazy James Cody, and has shared the stage with such audience favourites as East Coast Country Music's Ryan Cook, NFLD Bluesman Roger House, and keys dynamo Barry Cooke to name a few. The past couple of years have seen a new project develop with Karen Lizotte and the Looker's - a six piece blues/R&B crew, for which Karen curated and created all arrangments. Karen’s diverse performance talents also extend to many different instruments and stages as well - she has been a cast-member of the cultural musical production DRUM!, playing keyboards, accordion, flute, percussion, and more - through which she has met and performed for such celebrity guests as HRM Queen Elizabeth II, and Dolly Parton at her very own theme park Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN. Also a reputable actor, Karen has performed in many plays and musicals throughout the Maritimes - some recent credits include Lions' Den Theatre's production Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead taking on the gender-swapped role of The Player, and in Halifax's Neptune Theatre's Spring 2017 production of Once: The Musical.


"Karen Lizotte is a standout as The Player, the tart-tongued pimp and leader of the traveling band of actors." Read the entire review from The Coast of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead HERE.
