Although Kari's sexy innocence and "the girl next door" look stands out, she has a fierce side to her as well that she pulls out in her writing and performances. She might stand under 5'4", but don't let that fool you. She knows of love, loss and heartbreak and has written over 100 songs expressing just that. She pours her heart and soul into everything she does and stays true to her bubbly, friendly, high spirited personality. Even though she's felt pain and known heartbreak, she still writes of hope, faith and the importance of keeping your dignity, being an aspiring, positive role model to all.
It's no wonder why fans all over the country are falling in love with Kari and what she stands for. In her words, “Writing is how I react to life…good and bad, and with that, I can reach out to others. Performing on stage is the second step to how I react to life. It's where I leave everything. The one thing that I want people to take away from my shows is a feeling. That's what music is all about anyway...to let your emotions take you for a ride. When I think of my favorite concerts and songs, I don't always remember what they wore on stage, but I do remember what I felt that night and every time I hear their songs, I go back to that feeling. Those are the ones worth remembering."
She's been described as a cross between Shania Twain, Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood.
