KAREN NEWS

Whilst Shelly has been busy establishing her new material, Karen has been globetrotting, making new songwriting alliances with some of the current big names in pop.

Karen recently signed a publishing deal with Universal/Murlyn Music and is now managed by Native - part of 19 Management (Spice Girls, S Club) and she is really looking forward to exciting times. Click here to visit Karen's page at Native Management.

The next item I have to report is both Karen AND Shelly news ... you may have read here before that Karen was doing some songwriting with Janet Jackson. Sadly, their collaboration didn't make the final cut. However ... a song that Shelly co-wrote DID! Look out for "Slolove" on Janet's new album "Damita Jo".

In one of her frequent postings on the official message board, she confirmed that she has no interest in returning to the music scene as an artist:

"I am truly happy. I don't crave the artist thing right now". And her songwriting career is taking off like a rocket. Below is an up-to-date list of all the songs Karen has co-written (list current up to June 17, 2004). A big thank you to Aa fan Andrew Stewart for compiling this list (and keeping it updated) and giving me permission to use it here.
