Fantastic evening yesterday with Karen Thornton! Fabulous voice, great band, superb backup duo – a humorous and elegant performance Hamilton All Star Jazz

 Karen Thornton is a local singer/pianist who can play big band swing and jazz, as well as her own compositions from her recently released album, “Rain Down on Me.”  – GrahamRockingham’s best bets, The Hamilton Spectator

 I’ve been listening to Karen’s CD and I like it a lot. She is a really good singer and she’s backed by some wonderful musicians. The arrangements are great. I’d give it five stars. Jack Long, President & CEO Long & McQuade Musical Instruments, Appointed to the Order of Canada

Jazz doesn’t get much better than Rain Down on Me, the Hamilton Music Award nominated album from Waterdown’s Karen Thornton. The music will surely transport you into new worlds. – Hamilton Blues Lovers

Always good to work with talented people  – Ian Thomas, who appears on “Little Love” with Karen

Hi Karen.
Just have to tell you that I have been listening to your latest?? live-recorded CD and, as ever, marvelling at the warmth and rich quality of your vocals. Especially noticeable in your lower register. Really a treat to hear.
