NAUGHTY, BUT NICE! studio album …

This EP came about because we had recorded one of the tracks for inclusion on my studio album By Request but decided that it didn′t fit in with the rest of the album …  and I certainly didn′t want to waste a good recording so I chose four more tracks similarly slightly naughty and voila!  There is one track that was recorded live at the By Request album launch; the other four were recorded in part in Axio′s studio and in part at Pegasus Studios; the recording was approached in a much more laid back frame of mind that previous and more recent albums and the result is exactly what I was aiming for.  It′s not X-rated but these are, as advertised, five songs for grown ups …  and not for the prudish or easily shocked.  I have the reputation for often being quirky, occasionally being naughty – these songs are VERY Karen J White!  I′ve tried to give them my own little twist – I hope you enjoy the end results.

This album was put together in 2013; the songs chosen were amongst those most frequently requested by fans and friends when I was performing out and about at the time, hence the title.  There are a variety of styles from laid back to downright angry – there’s even a full on love song in there.  Most are covers, my interpretations of other people’s songs; the one original – yes, folks, a genuine Karen J White original - has proven highly popular with the Jazz fraternity, to my surprise!  I hope you enjoy them all.

NAUGHTY, BUT NICE! overview …

… this is compilation of cheeky songs I particularly enjoy performing; five songs for grown ups.  These are songs which could not be placed within my other albums due to the adult theme of the songs contents.

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 (link) or download them from my online download shop with Nimbit Music (my download shop)

BUYING your personal copy of my music …

All of the music I produce is properly licensed so that those who've done the original work are fairly paid, as they should be.  I make my recorded music available to buy both in hard copy form (CD) and in WAV & MP3 digital format (download).  Most of what you pay covers royalties and production costs.  Without people buying copies of my recorded music, as with all musicians who record music, recording will cease.  So not only does it help my ego when people buy my recorded music but it helps me continue to create further recordings!

To help keep my operating costs down I use PayPal as my payment merchant and the added bonus of doing so enables me to sell in multiple currencies and ensure maximun online payment security.  Importantly buyers using PayPal do not have to have a PayPal account and PayPal accepts most major credit cards in most currencies.  Similarly I use NimbitMusic, who also use PayPal, for my online download store.  Transactions via PayPay will show on your statement as ″AXIO …″
