About the event
Her debut album My Journey shot straight to #1 on the national ARIA Chart, was certified double platinum and went on to become the biggest selling album by an Australian artist in 2012. In New Zealand the album debuted at #3 and was certified gold. Karise made ARIA Chart history in the same year when she took out the top three spots on the singles chart with #1 Stay With Me Baby, #2 ‘Hallelujah’ and #3 ‘I Was Your Girl’; with her single ‘You Won’t Let Me’ at #5. Karise is the first person to do this in Australia since The Beatles had the Top 6 to themselves back in 1964.
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 sold out shows around the country.
Karise’s influences vary from blues through to bluesgrass, rock and soul: Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Guns ‘n’ Roses, Doc Watson, Jan Baez, Deep Purple, Etta James, Robert Cray, Joss Stone. Karise might sing a Janis Joplin song in a powerful husky voice followed by a beautiful Joan Baez song the next but her songwriting is always emotionally driven original material.
