Of Karen Oberlin's CD 'My Standards,' Josef Woodward of Entertainment Weekly magazine wrote: 'Because singer Oberlin is an artful straddler, moving gracefully between show tunes, jazz, and pop, it comes as no surprise that on My Standards the definition of standard is pleasantly fuzzy. On this velvety song set, she offers moving versions of tunes by Elvis Costello, Joni Mitchell, Randy Newman, and even the theme from Valley of the Dolls. On the jazz-standard tip, she also shows a wise take on 'How Deep Is the Ocean,' backed by ever-tasteful pianist Fred Hersch. Her standards are high, and her ears are wide open.' For her recent tribute to lyricist Yip Harburg, The New York Times praised Oberlin as having 'musical intelligence... purity, naturalness and polished phrasing, with added colors and a jazzy spontaneity. (Oberlin is) a jazzier inheritor of (Doris) Day's impeccable pop style.' She is a Back Stage Bistro Award winner and Nightlife Award finalist for Outstanding Vocalist of the Year. Karen Oberlin has a deep background in classical, jazz, cabaret, theater and musical theatre. The daughter of two classical musicians, she competed classically as a child in upstate New York, played piano, flute and cello and performed her first role in a musical at age 6. Since then she has trained extensively, graduating from Circle in the Square Professional Workshop Broadway theatre conservatory in New York, and studying voice for over 20 years. She also received her B.A. in literature and studied in France for a year, performing overseas while there. Before Ms. Oberlin's smash-hit debut of her Doris Day tribute 'Secret Love, a Tribute to the True Doris Day' at the Firebird CafT in New York, she entertained sold-out audiences in solo shows at the Algonquin Hotel's Oak Room to launch the release of 'My Standards'. Ms. Oberlin appeared in more than 100 Off-Broadway performances of the smash-hit show 'Our Sinatra.' She has performed at major New York venues such as Town Hall, Merkin Hall, The Metropolitan Room and The Firebird, among others. In addition to My Standards, Ms. Oberlin has released 'Secret Love: The Music of Doris Day' based on her hit show, also on the Miranda Music label. Along with these solo CD's she recorded part of a never-before-produced Duke Ellington/Herb Martin musical entitled 'Renaissance Man' to be released this year. Ms. Oberlin is also an actress who has appeared professionally in everything from Shakespeare to national commercials, including ALL MY CHILDREN and both independent and feature films.
