Cassablanca - Lonely Drifter Karen
This World Is Crazy - lonely drifter karen
Lonely Drifter Karen was born from the union of three people with different musical backgrounds, from folk and dream pop to cabaret, experimental, classical, rock and more. The band consists of Austrian singer Tanja Frinta, pianist and producer Marc Melià Sobrevias from Spain and Italian Giorgio Fausto Menossi on drums and percussions.
Started as a solo project by Viennese-born Tanja Frinta (after her former music group "Holly May" had disbanded) while she was living in Sweden, Lonely Drifter Karen became a band when Frinta moved to Barcelona and met Italian drummer Giorgio Menossi and Majorcan keyboard player and arranger Marc Meliá Sobrevias. From December 2006 until January 2008 Frinta and Melià had been recording the debut album Grass is Singing, which was released by Crammed Discs in May 2008 in Europe, June 2008 in the US and September 2008 in Canada. The Canadian release of the album is in collaboration with Montreal based Semprini Records who has also released Lonely Drifter Karen's 7" The Owl Moans Low in July 2008. The Grass Is Singing album was enthusiastically welcomed by the press in several European countries  (see quotes below).
The band is currently living in Brussels and Barcelona, where they recorded their second full length album Fall Of Spring which is due for release in the spring of 2010.
