Karyn resides in Union Beach, New Jersey with her husband and two sons. She began singing in elementary school, gradually becoming active in musical comedy in high school and college. Out on her own, she auditioned for and was accepted into the prestigious Helen Hobbs Jordan musicianship school in New York City. She will complete her BA in Music from Thomas Edison State College (earning credits from Montclair State College, and Berkeley's Online School of Music) in December 2011.
While in NY, she was the vocalist and choreographer for a NY based Oldies group `THE ULTIMATES’. She then moved on to `THE LIMIT’, a Top 40 group in New Jersey. It was at this time that she began her dream of playing bass.
After getting married and having children Karyn found her way back to the music she loves, playing bass and singing vocal harmonies with `DUE SOUTH’.
Karyn privately studied voice with Kate Baker, in West Orange, New Jersey and bass with Pete McGinley.
