Karen has been nominated for a BLUES MUSIC AWARD in the Best contemporary Blues Famale Artist category!

Lovely started singing the blues professionally in September 2007 and released her debut album, Lucky Girl, in November 2008. Lovely and her band claimed second place in the band category, at the 2010 International Blues Challenge.[6] Her 2010 offering, Still the Rain, was also released by Pretty Pear Records.[7] She and her band have appeared at the Waterfront Blues Festival, the Britt Festival, and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival's Green Show.[6]

The Paul Deslauriers Band just won the Maple Blues Award in the Band category. The Paul DesLauriers Band rhythm section of Greg Morency and Sam Harrisson each picked up
awards as Bassist and Drummer of the Year. It was Morency’s second win in three years, while Harrisson got the nod for the first time. The band also took home trophies in the Electric Act of the Year as well as Entertainer of the Year categories. The band has been riding a growing wave of success since the fall of 2015 when it clinched a win at the Montreal Blues Society hosted Quebec to Memphis contest. This secured them a slot at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis a year ago, where they impressed, finishing 2nd worldwide out of a field of 119 competing bands. Blues Foundation President and CEO Barbara Newman was on hand at the Maple Blues Awards and like a proud mother, congratulated the PDB boys
