Berardi Foran Karlen - Contemporary Jazz Live Act in West End, Brisbane

Berardi Foran Karlen Short Info

A true collaborative trio BERARDI/FORAN/KARLEN features the talents of three distinctive Australian artists.
Kristin Berardi, Sean Foran and Rafael Karlen are all strongly creative musicians, known for their clear personal aesthetic and artistic voice. Highly awarded nationally and internationally as performers and composers, their combined experience is formidable.
The music of this group is unlike anything they have each produced before and draws on sounds from modern jazz, European folk music and classical music. You may hear influences from jazz masters such as Kenny Wheeler, Bobo Stenson and Norma Winstone alongside the sounds of Debussy and Joni Mitchell.
Intensely intimate, textural and emotional, the music of Berardi/Foran/Karlen draws you close, at times a whisper, the lush piano harmonies merging with Berardi’s sublime vocal lines and Karlen’s engaging melodic interplay.
The debut album from the trio “Hope in My Pocket” features a range of material developed to explore the powerful experiences and emotions contained in the correspondence of men & women involved in our military past. The songs explore themes of hope, fear, separation, loss, love, and conditions of war, in a stunningly original way.
The trio tour Australia with performances around the country at clubs and festivals including the Brisbane, Canberra and Wangaratta Jazz Festivals.
