As soon as you hear the music of singer & songwriter Karma who is based out of Los Angeles, CA; you will quickly realize that not all Karma is bad. Karma describes her style as R&B sprinkled with a twist of Hip Hop and Soul. Since the age of 7, Karma who was born Paula Renee Joseph absorbed every ounce of music she heard which eventually led her to embark on her own music career. Appreciating music from artists who may not be number one on the charts all the time, Karma notes artists such as Teedra Moses & Aaliyah as influences in addition to legends such as Mary J. Blige, Gladys Knight, Lauryn Hill & of course Aretha Franklin just to name a few. Choosing to pursue singing was a serious decision for Karma once she realized jaws dropping followed by applause when she would imitate her favorite singers that came on the radio while she was growing up. Karma learned at an early age that being versatile with music would lead to a well rounded career so she immersed herself in to Jazz, R&B, Soul, Hip Hop plus Pop music to help cultivate a unique style all her own.
Karma realized early on that aspiring to be a great singer & songwriter is one thing but building a solid music resume is another. With the goal to create music that doesn’t have an expiration date & to become a brand that people can relate to more so than just an artist, Karma jumped feet first in to writing, singing & production. Not only has Karma been the back-up singer for several artists including Sharon Maree, Steve Harris, Brooke Taylor, Sheena Player & Amber Melody; Karma has also written songs for several artists exclusively under Heat Pharm Productions when she was a songwriter. Karma has performed at a number of venues in Southern California including M Bar, Hollywood Bar and Grill, Cohibas Night Club and Lounge, House of Blues, Waterfront, Hollywood Park Casino & The Airliner. Karma released her debut project on 12/12/12 titled, “The Good Karma Project” which includes songs “My Room” & “Patient” which has received a lot of major buzz from fans already.
