She’s assisted in connecting me and my music to the public and helped me focus my whirlwind of projects and ideas. There is really no one like her in our world.”


“Working with Kari has been like finding the missing puzzle pieces in my career and artistic mission. Her questions, critiques and encouragement have always brought me tangible and transformative results.”

Emily Pinkerton / The Early Mays

“In putting together an uncompromising album, it’s critical to have someone like Kari who knows how to pull what’s great out of an artist and help them define their project. … when it comes to being the artist, it’s hard to be objective
– that’s one reason why Kari is invaluable to me as an artist!”
