SOHO SQUARE studio album …

This is my second studio album which, together with In These Shoes? forms a personal tribute to the life and music of Kirsty MacColl.  Again, with the help of my co-producer Nigel Pegrum and a lovely bunch of professional musicians I have interpreted the songs my way - these tracks are not aiming to sound identical to the Kirsty originals, they are good old Karen J White throwing myself into the wonderful music – but not straying too far from the originals, which would upset many of the Kirsty Fans  … it is a fine balance!

This album completes my recordings of the 21 tracks chosen to go onto CDs (I already have another two tracks on ″By Request″) and these songs go from Kirsty′s first ever record release in 1979 (″They Don′t Know″ with ″Turn My Motor On″ as the B side) to some from her final album in 2000 ″Tropical Brainstorm″ (tracks 1, 3, 7 & 10) with various stages in between!

SOHO SQUARE overview …

My personal tribute to the life and musical legacy of Kirsty MacColl - album #2 of 2.

This is the second of my two albums dedicated to the memory of the late, great British singer/songwriter Kirsty MacColl.  Lyrics in the title track include the line ″One day you’ll be waiting there, no empty bench in Soho Square″ and those words are quoted on a bench dedicated to her memory, in Soho Square, London.  Together with the tracks on the first album “In these Shoes?” these songs will form the basis for the playlist of my planned ‘tribute to Kirsty’ shows in the future.  Kirsty was a wonderful interpreter of songs, both her own and those written by others; I believe that with these two albums, whether taken as individual, stand-alone albums or together as a pair, I have done justice to her great musical legacy.  I hope you enjoy the music too!

I hope you enjoy the sample clips below and that you like them enough to support independant artists like me and either order actual album CDs direct from me (in person, by phone, by email or via this website) or download them from my online download shop with Nimbit Music (my download shop).
