THE ECLECTIC SOUND OF EDEN
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”.
