The Dornishman’s Wife

So I decided to go all raw and primal with this Game of Thrones song since it’s essentially a song about lust, sex and murder. I originally started with a traditional, folksy version but I was bored and felt I needed to spice it up a bit and do something a bit darker and a bit more exiting.
Really hope you guys like my take on this song, it was a lot of fun to make.

    keep up the good work

    This is… amazing! OMG. HBO needs to hire you for every season from now on, seriously. Because your renditions of the ASOIAF songs are so perfect. I feel like the way you sing these songs is how I envisioned the songs when coming across them while reading the series. I think it’s because I feel like your voice has a very beautiful, almost medieval quality to it that just fits with all of these songs. You should make just a ASOIAF soundtrack from all of the ones you did, and send it to GRRM. I’m seriously. Just fantastic.

    Wow, you have the voice of an angel.

  7. Tinúviel June 24, 2013 at 10:51 am

    I really love your work and I think you have an amazing voice.

    I know you have a lot of request, but I sincerely think that the poem of Luthien and Beren would be a beautiful song 🙂 It’s the poem that Aragorn tell to the Hobbits in the first book of The Lord of the Rings.

    Anyway, I realy enjoy listen your songs 🙂

    (Btw, sorry if my english is not that good… I’m from Argentina)

    I love your songs!
    I always sing hem, if I go to school, or walk our dog…it’s only wonderful.
    I want your voice…
    “the Dornishman’s Wife”, “you win or die” and “lord of castamear” are my favourite songs…amasing!
    I hope, that you keep on singing, I want to hear more from you!!!

    (sorry for my english…I’m from german…You have fans in this country,too)

    Your music is stunning. Its truly inspirational!
    I was wondering if you’ve considered any music from the old cartoon
    “The last Unicorn”
    Theres some very beautiful melodies within it that might suit your style.

    Keep singing darlin

  11. Karliene July 2, 2013 at 3:08 pm

  12. Tala July 2, 2013 at 5:30 pm

    I absoloutly adore your song’s, you have a rare and beautiful voice. I constantly check to see if you have done any new songs so i can download them… Lol, i made special compilation for my car so when i go out and it’s hot weather i open the car window and play it loud.. lol also i walk to morrisson’s so i can listen to them all on my phone and sing along as I’m walking with the dog..
    I have noticed that your version of “red wedding” is not available to download. It’s quite a poignant twist and reflective and i would like to add it to my compilation.
    xx

    I love all your music, really speaks to my soul…would love for you to record some songs based on the malazan book of the fallen…think my life would be complete then =)

  15. Karliene July 6, 2013 at 8:07 am

    Hi Vicky, i’m thrilled you’re enjoying the music. Thank you so much for the lovely compliements. My Red Wedding song, “Let it End” is an original composition that I’m keeping back for my album, it is available to purchase as a single on cdbaby for $1.99 or you can wait for the full album. Hope that helps. Xx

  16. Madeleine July 6, 2013 at 12:36 pm

    I can’t pinpoint it, but this made me cry (and I never cry!) Your version is breathtaking and perfect in every way. This is going to play on my iPod all week! Thank God I found your channel on youtube. Keep creating the incredible music!

  17. vicky July 8, 2013 at 11:47 pm

    Hi ,love that’s great i can’t wait to get my hands on it. , when is it out, Do i have to wait along time ?.. Lol now you said your doing one i’m dying to get my hands on it.. Will deff be played in the car all the time. I was wondering also if you had considered doing a celtic song called , chi mi na mhorbheanna, I like the version by the rankin family but i think your beauttifull voice would do justice better, I’m like you in the sense that i love folksy music and the game of thrones songs and the latest. Last of the giant’s – And i think your voice is quite rustic so it really does these kind of songs,… lol hope you don’t think i’m being awful by saying rustic, i just mean that’s how these folk songs should sound and thats why they are so enchanting when you sing them. Sorry waffleing on. CAN’T WAIT …. xx

  18. Ally July 10, 2013 at 12:34 pm

    Hi! I love your music. You are so talented. Just bought let it end on itunes but can’t find any of your other songs. Please do put them up soon! Would so love to see a proper album from you too. Good luck and keep up the awesome work.

  19. Karliene July 10, 2013 at 2:00 pm

    Thanks so much Frae, My song “Let it End” is a single from my upcoming album ( release date not announced yet ) so that’s why it’s all alone on itunes. All my other songs, covers, musical interpretations are all up here on my website to download for free so have a browse and take what you like. Thanks so much for the support.
    I’ll be announcing the album release on my facebook and you tube page so keep an eye out for it. 🙂

  20. Zach July 13, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    This is pretty much some of the greatest stuff I’ve ever heard. Keep up the awesome work

  21. Jonix July 23, 2013 at 11:59 pm

    One of my top favorite song when you do it so beautifully

  22. Millan July 26, 2013 at 1:23 am

    Thank you for making all these beautiful songs, I just can’t stop listening to them. You have the most beautiful voice I ever heard. I’m looking forward to hearing more songs from you and I’m hoping that one day you might sing the song Sleepsong, originally by Secret Garden. I’m looking forward to buy your album when it comes out. Lots of Love from Sweden.

  23. Ann-Christin Eckardt July 26, 2013 at 6:26 am

    So beautiful voice, and lovely songs. This song is kind of more spicy than some others and i would love is some LARP musicians could perform that in a tavern some time! I love all your songs your great!

  24. Leon July 26, 2013 at 4:03 pm

    By the dornish man’s spear
    I’ve been wounded
    so badly

    But the dornish woman’s voice
    pierced my heart
    even more deadly

    For me (and surely for many others) your voice opened a secret gate to Weseteros … and will ever bring me back.

  25. Karliene July 26, 2013 at 5:10 pm

    Beautiful little lyrics there! I love it and thank you so much for the gorgeous comment. It’s lovely to know my music is touching people as I get so much joy making it and putting it out there. xx

  26. Matt August 22, 2013 at 12:31 am

    Can’t stop listening to this song. They should use this, as well as some of your other work…in the show. Thank you for giving a voice to our passion for this fictional world
