The model-turned-singer takes the stage in California

Model and muse turned critically adored chanteuse Karen Elson supports the California leg of Ryan Adams’ tour (June 1-3 in Santa Barbara, Berkeley and L.A.), performing lyrical tracks off Double Roses, her new folk-inflected—and starry collaborator-filled—follow-up to 2010’s The Ghost Who Walks. “I think of Big Sur and my heart melts,” says the English native of her Golden State love affair. “In L.A. you’ve got bright lights, big city…and then you can head to Joshua Tree and sit under the stars on a clear desert night.” karenelson.com.
