NEWSFLASH! com.passion is number one in the MP3.com.au Power Pop charts all April!!!

Com.passion is the name of the studio of Karena Wynn-Moylan , songwriter, producer, arranger.
Karena's musical styles range from folk/pop to ambient electronica and she uses a mixture of live recordings of instruments she plays (guitar, keyboards, woodwinds) and loops and samples she creates in the studio together with other musicians and guest vocalists.






Why this name?
The name 'com.passion' came to Karena in a dream and she realised it perfectly described her modus operandi-her songs are about love and emotional journeys and the search for peace in a difficult world, and she relies heavily on her computer and programming skills to realise her work.
Do you play live?
Every now and then - when she can tear herself away from the studio. Karena performs alone and with friends in various line-ups depending on the occasion.
" Working alone in the studio I experience my most creative moments, but taking that creation to an audience is a special scarey high,and every now and then I force myself to face it for the sake of the music."
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
The music listening audience has much broader tastes than the industry ever gives them credit for- with mp3, the music is the thing , not the special image devised by the marketing section to promote this months artist, or the million dollar video played endlessly. Artists can make direct contact with their fans, can reach audiences that previously they only dreamed of across the other side of the world.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Major labels are not interested in artists like me.
Band History:
Karena's work can be found all over the net in various sites - since 2001 she has worked with internet band 'Red Candle' ( since renamed 'Dream Out Loud') writing all the arrangements and production to Wisconsin-based Mike Mosculewski's songs, with post production added by Bristol producer Stephen Russell. Their first album 'Life in the Barrens' is now available from their website - www.dreamoutloud.dmusic.com/ She has been recognised for her instrumental compositions and songwriting in various competitions and through the New York agency Pump Audio her work appears on MTV . HBO,Discovery Channel,Animal Planet and even Oprah.
She has won several local music industry awards for Instrumental, Song and Spoken Word categories.
The song 'Espressohead' was selected to be featured in the Australian National Sound Archives contemporary song collection.
Karena has recorded her work with various vocalists over the last few years but these current tracks have been sung by Colleen de Winton.She is currently working on a new album with Mike Moszculewski to be entitled 'Fray'.
