***disclosure*** This story is fictional.
It's 8:45 p.m. (EST) and we find Karen, Werner and Phil wrapping the "business" part of their meeting and are now entering in to casual conversation.
"Phil, meeting you has been a real pleasure," Karen says, "I feel very comfortable speaking with you."
"Thank you Karen. The feeling's mutual, "Phil responds, "you really are as nice as everybody has always said you are."
"I feel like I can be myself with you," Karen continues speaking expressively using her hands to add extra emphasis to her words, "and that's very important to me. Making music is an emotional and personal experience for me. I think it's important to feel a bond or a closeness with the people you're working with."
"Yes, I agree Karen. It is important to have that chemistry going. That's the way a masterpiece begins." Phil comments.
"There is so much about myself I want to discover and share with the world. I am so tired of having this "sad girl" image. I read a recent review which said I have the "saddest voice" in the history of music. That does not sit too well with me. "Dark" maybe, "soulful". But to say I have the saddest voice sounds like an insult to me." Karen keeps talking with a funny grimace on her face, "I really want to break out of this goody two shoes image. It's just not me. Maybe I'll play a prostitute or a madam in a movie. That would really shock people," Karen chuckles as she speaks.
"Ha! You're funny Karen. But really you don't have to go to those lengths." Phil answers back, "We'll just put out an album that is so musically advanced and superior that they won't even be paying attention to that cute goody two shoes image of yours."
Karen gives Phil one of her innocent yet mischievous smiles, "Now that sounds like the best idea yet."
