For our eighth instalment of Reversal of the Muse, Laura is joined by singer songwriter Karen Elson and musician/producer Jonathan Wilson. Karen started her career as a successful high-fashion model, and then went on to release her excellent debut album ‘The Ghost Who Walks’ in 2010. Karen’s forthcoming second album was produced by Jonathan, and Laura also features on backing vocals.

Jonathan starts by talking about his experience of working with women in the studio, and if there’s a difference in the male approach. After working with Jonathan, Karen and Laura share how they trust and admire his sensitivity to the creative process, and together wonder if women will become more integrated into the mechanical world of the studio - perhaps it’s already happening. Karen also recalls the struggles she’s faced, especially at the genesis of her music career, through feeling objectified by men in the industry as if she’s a commodity. She highlights the importance of having the right team of people around an artist, whether that be men or women.
