Formerly a backup singer with the country-rock band Poco, newcomer Karen Tobin weds a big, soulful vocal approach with a taste for roots-oriented contemporary country on Carolina Smokey Moon. Philadelphia-born but California-cured, she infuses such tunes as the title song and a cover of Hank Williams’ ”My Sweet Love Ain’t Around” with almost palpable tension and longing, skillfully building small, tight crescendos of pain and desire.
