Karina Kern has been in the St. Paul/Minneapolis music scene since 2013. Formally a member of The Lotus Goodnight, an indie acoustic band, Karina had a slow start in her music career while working and still going to school at St. Cloud State University. In 2016, when Karina’s mom passed, she knew it was time to make her dream a reality. Watching her mom struggle with health issues, she wrote her first solo released single ‘The Ground’. Her mom was able to hear the song, but it was far too late for her to take the advice Karina was trying to give. Since ‘The Ground’ was released in 2016, Karina released another single ‘Country Girl City’ in March of 2017 telling the story about her move to Chicago. She plans to release her 5 song EP in late May/early June.
