Karise Eden’s voice can move a nation.
The young singer who grew up on the Central Coast of NSW began singing blues and rock from an early age.
She began playing guitar at 13 and also picked up the double bass.
After busking and playing community festivals around her home town, Karise shot to fame in 2012 at just 19 years of age,
winning the first series of The Voice Australia.
Her debut album My Journey shot straight to number one on the national ARIA Chart, was certified double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling album by an Australian artist in 2012.
Karise made ARIA Chart history in the same year, taking out the top three spots on the singles chart with #1 Stay With Me Baby, #2 with her breathtaking cover of Hallelujah and #3 I Was Your Girl. Her single You Won’t Let Me was #5.
She became the first artist since the Beatles to have four songs in the top five in just one week.
Karise’s second album Things I’ve Done charted at #6 on the ARIA Chart, achieved gold sales status and was followed up by a sell-out Australian tour.
Karise’s influences vary from blues through to bluegrass, rock and soul: Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Doc Watson, Joan Baez, Deep Purple, Etta James, Robert Cray, Joss Stone.
She might sing a Janis Joplin song in a powerful husky voice, followed by a beautiful Joan Baez song next, but her
song writing is always emotionally driven original material.
In 2018, Karise Eden released her third album starting with the first single Temporary Lovers.
In her Twin Towns show, Karise will perform soul classics she is known and loved for, plus a couple of original tracks from her new album Born To Fight.
At 26 years of age, Karise says she is the fittest she’s ever been, and is reaping the rewards.
“Since working out and developing on my core strength, my high notes are stronger and my lower register is thicker and richer.”
Prepare to be mesmerised by one of Australia’s best soul and blues voices when Karise performs in the Twin Towns Showroom on Friday 22 February, 8pm Qld time. Tickets are $40 plus booking fee.
