Karen Gibson Roc is an astonishment. This poet and musician is fierce and fearless. A musical chameleon (she calls herself a “poetist” or poetic vocalist).
A reviewer of one of her live performances once came to the conclusion that Gibson Roc must have something to do with the preservation of the universe. She has been compared to Gil Scott-Heron, although she is not political, as Scott-Heron was. She is a sloganeer as he was, but in a more personal mode. Neither depressing nor conflict-oriented, her lyrics are impassioned love songs to Spirituality, femininity and art. Being creative is intensely important to her, and by extension to the rest of the world.
Karen Gibson Roc manages to ask profound questions without making them sound too hard to understand. Instead, her songs are so sweet and consoling that you start to wonder how you can ever do without her music. She seems connected to universal love.
Karen says her main theme "is the evolution of spirit and the truth about following what is your calling here in the physical." Her objective is 'to inspire dream following, to uplift hearts, and to open minds.' And that she does. She grabs your soul and never lets go with her music, her words and her spirit.
