About Karen Elson

English model and singer/songwriter Karen Elson has appeared on the covers of Vogue, Elle, and W magazines. In 2005 she appeared in the video for the White Stripes' “Blue Orchid,” where she met Jack White; the couple married in June 2005 and moved to Nashville, Tennessee. Along with operating a vintage boutique, Elson finally allowed White to hear her songs. He helped her record them, acting as producer and playing drums with a backing band that also included guitarist Jackson Smith. She also recorded a single with her garage punk outfit Mildred and the Mice in 2009, but her official solo debut, The Ghost Who Walks, arrived in May 2010. ~ Heather Phares
