One of the best-kept secrets in the New Zealand music scene, guitarist and singer-songwriter Káren Hunter blends hipster jazz grooves and dirty blues, with provocative streetwise poetry.

Auckland-based Hunter sings, speaks and scats through her original music, liberally embellishing stories and bridging the gap between the dangerous and the mundane.

Collaborating in the Scrapyard Cabaret are musicians: Aaron Coddel (Bass), Neil Watson (Guitar), Adam Tobeck (Drums), Sung Jin Hong (Trumpet) and Jess Curtis (Vocals).

Káren Hunter Scrapyard Cabaret features songs from her most recent releases, 'Words & Groove' and 'Rubble' in this brand new cabaret experience created especially for ERUPT 2010.

“That she can switch from a dirty jazz-blues rhythm section arrangement to a simple guitar-picking delivery to spoken word reveals Hunter as a major New Zealand talent.” Waikato Times

"Karen Hunter is a ridiculously accomplished guitar-playing, singing, songwriting Aucklander whose performances are pithy, compassionate and insightful." Metro.
