Karen Waldrup is one of Nashville’s newest and brightest stars to burst onto the music scene.
From her humble beginnings of hosting her own writers night within her first month of living in Nashville, to releasing her 5th CD titled “DON'T GIVE UP” as the Country Duo Midtown Violets, to appearing on Bravo channel’s television show “Platinum Hit” hosted by well known artist Jewel and hit songwriter Kara DioGuardi, Karen has been quite the musical success story that many can only dream of.

In 2013 Karen's music took her and the Midtown Violets internationally to Belize and Guatemala to perform.
Over the last 5 years, she has toured all over the world and mainly tours the southeast US with Midtown Violets. Karen prides herself on being a touring artist, but also does vocal studio work in Nashville and spends her spare time co-writing and singing every chance she gets. She is endorsed by MAC makeup and Epiphone/Gibson guitars.
2014 continues to be a touring year for Karen. Her newest album (with Midtown Violets) "DON'T GIVE UP" was released Jan 2014. The sky is the limit for this artist and her ambition and drive will turn Karen and her voice into a household name.
