Oklahoma Lottery is Karen Jonas’ first solo record and she is going to work her way up to a place at the bar among a very crowded field of country-rock women. Karen Jonas has a knack for writing barroom ballads. Her songs about gangsters, ne’er do wells, and down and outers will make you want to buy someone a drink. You’ll tap your foot despite yourself. You’ll want to commiserate with her about her lost loves even while you back away slowly.
