Ashlee Thomas & Karen Waldrup
Earthfolk yoga songstress Ashlee K Thomas was raised at the foot of the Wasatch Mountains in Sandy, Utah. Growing up in the magic of nature had a profound effect on Ashlee, and its influence is ever present in her songwriting. She has spent the years traveling the world, exploring, practicing yoga, and sharing her music from Panama, Peru, and Mexico to India, Kauai, and throughout the United States, finding her audience and sharing Earthfolk music and Fireflow yoga with everyone she meets. Of her purpose, Ashlee says, “I want my music to stir up thoughts and emotions, the way yoga does for the body. I want to connect to the people who love this earth.”
Karen Waldrup is Nashville’s newest and brightest stars to burst on to the music scene. From her humble beginnings of hosting her own writers night within her first month living in Nashville, to releasing her second CD titled “With Love, Karen” within only one year, to appearing on Bravo channel’s television show “Platinum Hit” hosted by well known artist Jewel and American Idol veteran Kara DioGuardi, Karen has been quite the musical success story many can only dream about. In fact, Karen was previously named one of GAC’s Top 25 songwriters. Her list of accomplishments in such a short time is impressive to say the least.
