In this episode of the podcast, I’m excited to introduce you to my friend, jazz singer, and songwriter, Karla Harris.
Karla has been singing professionally for over 30 years. She’s sung at jazz festivals, TED Talks, and is currently an artist in residence at Kennesaw State University where she teaches the next generation of jazz singers.
Her new album, “Certain Elements” was released in 2018 and reached the #44 spot on the prestigious Jazz Week chart. Two of her original tunes on the record are semi-finalists in the International Songwriting Competition in the jazz and performance categories.
I first heard Karla sing at Wilf’s, a small jazz club in Portland, OR. Her rich command of the jazz idiom, luscious voice, and presence onstage drew me in and made me a fan for life.
In our conversation, you’ll hear:

  • How she approaches writing and learning songs.
  • The importance of downtime and reflection in a creative life.
  • How to network with other musicians.
  • The importance of practicing with sound equipment.
  • How she supports her “jazz habit”.
  • What makes her a confident bandleader.
  • The mind/body connection in singing and emotional vulnerability.

And much more.
You can find Karla Harris on: Facebook, or her website.
