As soon as you hear the music of singer & songwriter Karma who is based out of Los Angeles, CA; you will quickly realize that not all Karma is bad. She describes her style as R&B sprinkled with a twist of Hip Hop and Soul. Since the age of 7, Karma absorbed every ounce of music she heard which eventually led her to embark on her own music career. Karma notes artists such as Teedra Moses, Aaliyah, Ryan Leslie, Missy and Chrisette Michelle as influences in addition to legends such as Mary J. Blige, Michael Jackson, Lauryn Hill & of course Stevie Wonder.
Choosing to pursue singing was a serious decision for Karma once she realized jaws dropping followed by applause when she would imitate her favorite singers that came on the radio while she was growing up. Karma learned at an early age that being versatile with music would lead to a well rounded career, so she immersed herself into Jazz, R&B, Soul, Hip Hop plus Pop music to help cultivate a unique style all her own.
Karma realized early on that aspiring to be a great singer & songwriter is one thing but building a solid music resume is another. With the goal to create music that doesn’t have an expiration date & to become a brand that people can relate to more so than just an artist, Karma jumped feet first into writing, singing & production. Not only has Karma been the back-up singer for several artists including Sharon Maree, Steve Harris, Brooke Taylor, Sheena Player & Amber Melody; Karma has also written songs for several artists exclusively during her time with Heat Pharm Productions as an in-house songwriter. Karma has performed at a number of venues in Southern California including M Bar, Hollywood Bar and Grill, Cohibas Night Club and Lounge, House of Blues, Waterfront, Hollywood Park Casino, The G.S., Normandie Casino, The House of Blues, Da Poetry Lounge, The Karma Lounge, Lola’s, Industry Cafe & The Airliner.
After earning her degree in sound engineering and post production from the Los Angeles Recording School and a degree in Liberal Arts, Karma went on to teach music to the youth in the inner city. While fulfilling her dream of giving back to her community and becoming an ambassador for the nonprofit organization Helping Gods Children, Karma began touring with a band called the Love Revolution. She also performed with international recording artist Minh in Vegas, opening up for legendary acts such as the Isley Brothers and Maze & Frankie Beverly at the Las Vegas Hilton. Karma went on to release her debut mixtape project titled, “The Good Karma Project” which includes the fan favorite songs “Say Yes” & “Patient.” Having produced and written the bulk of the mixtape herself, the project has received a lot of major buzz from fans and allowed Karma to expand her online fan base. The project earned the singer features with The Hype Magazine, Fresh Ndef, LA Talk Live, Naughty Down Radio, Always Therro, cookiBOX, Pure Soul Magazine, Qubeey, Daftstar, Smashex TV, Every Way Woman, and Parallel Music as well as countless others.
Most recently Karma has performed on tour with Carnival Cruises overseas where she expanded her musical repertoire into genres such as Motown, country, rock, alternative and jazz standards. Realizing that being an artist is not enough, Karma recently launched her own company Good Karma Entertainment and also runs her own studio as well where she not only records her own projects, but works with other upcoming artists and offers lessons to youth in her community as well.
