Karla Kane is a San Francisco Bay Area-based songwriter, singer and ukulele player. Best known for her work as the leader of The Corner Laughers, Kane’s solo debut, “King’s Daughters Home for Incurables,” was recently released to critical acclaim. The record leads listeners into an intriguing land of acorns and tea leaves; feminism and fairy tales; pagan pop and pastoral protest songs; whimsical wanderings and sharp observations on the current state of the world. It’s a place for chronic worriers, hopeless romantics, Anglophiles, patriarchy smashers and gentle dreamers, where sunny California indie meets melancholy English folk and the redwood meets the oak.
Kane has performed alongside members of Fountains of Wayne and The Soft Boys, Martin Newell, Sophie Madeleine, Hungrytown, and Allen Clapp (The Orange Peels). Her music has been featured by the BBC, CBC and radio stations and retails stores throughout the U.S. and Europe.
