Karise Eden, the 20 year-old winner of ‘The Voice 2012’ from the Central Coast in New South Wales, is set to perform her first live performances under the banner of the Heavenly Sounds tour this October.
Coming to fruition in 2011 with Seeker Lover Keeper, the inaugural Heavenly Sounds tour sold out swiftly and just last month Lisa Mitchell again delivered an acclaimed sold out tour. Set in the architectural splendour, rich acoustics and ethereal ambience of these church settings, Karise Eden will delight audiences with her distinct vocal style and personable approach.
As Karise Eden took out the title of The Voice 2012, wowing coaches and the public alike, she was made aware of the unique and intimate touring concept Heavenly Sounds offers. As she explains, it was Karise herself who chose to conduct her first major national tour in the enchanting setting of churches and cathedrals.
“I was made aware of the Heavenly Sounds concept just after the show finished. The idea of singing soul and blues in beautiful churches is so exciting. When we were planning the first tour, I really wanted to try and make these shows as unique as possible and keep them feeling intimate. Heavenly Sounds is the perfect way to do it! I’ll be playing songs from the current album as well as new material I have been working on.”
Karise Eden has had an incredible month. After taking out the crown of The Voice 2012 in June, Karise scored 6 out of the top ten singles on the ARIA Charts; a feat not achieved since The Beatles in 1964. ‘My Journey’, her album of songs performed on The Voice remains at number 1 on the ARIA album charts, a position it has held for six consecutive weeks. It has already been accredited double platinum and is the fastest selling non-Christmas album since Pink in 2008. She has gone on to perform at the State Of Origin Final (the highest rating TV show this year) and performed two songs on Channel 9’s ‘Voice Reaches Out’ in aid of Reach. Karise will head off to the UK and Europe next month to start work on her debut release of all new material before heading back to Australia to kick off the tour.
Karise will be supported at all shows by Lakyn, who scored a gold single on The Voice with his cover of Big Jet Plane, will be showcasing new material to be released later this year.
With Heavenly Sounds shows taking place in the unique and ethereal settings of some of Australia’s most stunning churches and cathedrals, Karise said:
“I don’t see myself as a crowd-pumping, everybody put your hands up kind of performer, so I think this kind of tour is more appropriate for my style and I just like the intimate feeling it will create”
Karise Eden’s inaugural national tour with Heavenly Sounds is sure to be popular – be quick to secure tickets to witness this remarkable young lady perform in these awe-inspiring settings nationwide!
