Karen Gibson Roc is a full-time artist.  Emotions, feelings and colors flow from her lips as she does her spoken word and poetry.  Her motto is not to die “unfinished,” a slogan all of us should have.

Karen Gibson Roc wears her soul on her sleeve. And the VH1-HBO soul poet has an enormous gift to give those who listen to her entrancing weave of music and spoken words—she will help you awaken your own soul to the peace and serenity everyone is searching for. Read more
————————————————————
This Jamaican-born spoken word poet has the smarts to couple profound and resonant language with evocative music that’s utterly titillating. Roc’s background beats range from lounge music to acid jazz and so many variants in between. Both live instrumentation and samples back up Roc’s often-spiritual musings, keeping the presentation from getting too monotonous. This chick has the gift.

“We live in these times for a reason, and when we observe greatness speaking among us it is a blessing. I am thankful to be able to share these words with this mighty woman .. peace!”

‘SLOW DOWN’ NEW SINGLE BY KAREN GIBSON ROC AND MERGE-OF-EQUALS

–REVIEW BY DJ Johnnyf

I have enjoyed her music and poetry for a few years now and this new track will be right at the top of my playlist for the first part of 2015.

The track begins with the hypnotic sound of the drum before Karen gently guides us with her wisdom on a theme so necessary for our life and times calling us to slow down and find the rhythm of our natural flow and not chase the illusion of a world that controls so many of us .

Karen collaborates with Merge of Equals on this wonderful track that will be released on lounge du soleil vol 18 released on January 23rd 2015. Find it here: AMAZON  –great advice for a new year x
