MusicArtistsBritainKaren CarpenterJessie J (music group)

A host of female singers heralding from the U.K. have really been impacting radio in the U.S. Think Adele…or Jessie J. Well, Atlantic Records recording artist Rumer is making waves across the pond with her music. She's been compared to legendary songstress Karen Carpenter.

PIX11's Sharon Carpenter (sorry, no relation) sat down with England's latest musical import to talk about her new album and the inspiration behind her music. Rumer's album hits stores in January. However, you can catch her performing in New York City tonight and Friday night at the Rockwood Music Hall.
