She's had numerous international radio hits, with songs recorded by such artists as Laura Branigan, Melissa Manchester, Al Jarreau, Nana Mouskouri & Patty Loveless. She's garnered several "Songwriter of the Year" awards. Karen writes powerful songs about issues that most writers would not even attempt to address.

She has recorded with such notable performers as Dolly Parton, Al Green, Willie Nelson, Kenny Rogers & George Jones. As a solo artist, she has had 9 nationally-charted singles.

Karen’s CDs, book, and personally-designed ‘touchstone’ bracelet were featured on the Home Shopping Network on several occasions.

As an author, Karen has recently penned her first book entitled "On Angel's Wings," which includes a companion CD. A collection of vignettes and songs about real-life situations, it resonates deeply with mature audiences. The book (in its third printing) contains poignant, moving and uplifting stories dealing with aging parents, teenagers, child abuse, spirituality, and even a tongue-in-cheek look at a trip to the gynecologist!

As a keynote speaker, Karen Taylor Good has inspired, motivated, encouraged, and entertained thousands. She is in demand with women's organizations (including American Business Women's Association) because of her entrepreneurial spirit; with health care organizations (including The National Hospice Foundation) because of her nurturing heart; and with business organizations (including U.S. Bank) because of her unique presentations, which blend music, humor, pathos and chutzpah!

As a marketer, Karen's objective is clear: To make a difference in the world as the 'Song Guru' - - - a woman of wisdom and compassion who uses the power of music to open hearts and minds - - - to remind us that we are all together in this strange and wondrous journey of life.
