SINGER PER­FORMS IN ROOTY HILL

SHE won the hearts of Aus­tralians with her unique vo­cal gift on the 2012 sea­son of The Voice and now Karise Eden’s Things I’ve Done tour will visit Rooty Hill RSL on Satur­day.

The 22-year-old has al­ready left her mark on Aus­tralian mu­sic history af­ter break­ing the record for the high­est num­ber of sin­gles on the na­tional sales chart – pre­vi­ously held by The Bea­tles.

The con­cert will fea­ture a mix of her clas­sics and ma­te­rial from her new al­bum Things I’ve Done.

“I’ve done a few in­ti­mate acous­tic shows re­cently, but this time around, I’ll be step­ping it up and bring­ing a full band,” Eden said.

“Ob­vi­ously play­ing songs from the new al­bum, a few faves from my first al­bum and a few sur­prise cov­ers.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to belt­ing out with the energy of a full band be­hind me, that’s for sure.

“Some songs work bet­ter stripped back raw to just one in- stru­ment and vo­cals, so I’ll do that too.”

Eden’s eclec­tic style shines through on her new al­bum, which fea­tures soul, pop, rock and bal­lads.

“I love Ja­nis Jo­plin, Jimi Hen­drix, Amy Wine­house and a lot of rock­ers like Deep Pur­ple, Black Sab­bath and Guns N’ Roses,” she said.

“I also like newer acts like Imag­ine Dragons, James Bay, Alabama Shakes, Gary Clarke Jr and lo­cal fave Kasey Cham­bers.”

As the name may sug­gest, Eden’s new al­bum is writ­ten about her mu­sic life.

“I guess it’s got a bit of a dou­ble mean­ing,” she said.

“The al­bum is full of songs talk­ing about my life. At the same time, it’s the fin­ished prod­uct of songs I’ve been work­ing on since my first al­bum.”

Eden promised the con­cert would al­low the au­di­ence to ex­pe­ri­ence her per­for­mance in all its “raw­ness and energy that you can never cap­ture in the stu­dio”.
