It is named after her second album, “Karen Dalton: In My Own Time” in honor of the late blues singer and folklore. A new trailer for the documentary shows friends, family, bandmates, experts and famous fans rethinking her unique approach to music and life.
“I think what makes Karen such an outstanding artist is that she doesn’t sing NS “You – she sings it to herself,” explains Vanessa Carlton. We were told she got married at a young age and refused to “be a housewife” – she left for New York City and pursued music instead. Success followed, but Dalton didn’t care about the spotlight. “She was not a theatrical type girl – the joy of it escaped her,” he asserted.
Dalton died in 1993. “With most images of Karen lost or destroyed, the film uses Karen’s sweet melodies, interviews with loved ones, and newly discovered archival material to build a rich portrait of this unique woman and her beautiful, fearsome voice,” the document summary details.
Karen Dalton: In My Own Time will be released in theaters October 1 and November 16 digital.
