Kari currently lives in Los Angeles. "Great music is undefinable. It can trigger things that have happened in the past and take you on a journey that reaches such deep emotions, you may not realize that it was music that brought you there. It's mysterious and it almost has a life of it's own. It can heal and it can break people down. I write songs because that's all I know to do. I function that way- everything I feel and everything I think about gets poured into a song, and my hope is that it has the power to make people feel things that change the way they look at life."
