Clas­sic de­but for new mas­ter

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Music - Tanya MacNaughton

THERE is a lyric in the ti­tle song on Karise Eden’s lat­est al­bum Things I’ve Done that de­scribes the singer with el­e­gant pre­ci­sion – ‘young but I’m an old soul’.

Last year The Voice Australia se­ries one win­ner went public with news she had suf­fered a phys­i­cal and men­tal break­down fol­low­ing the tele­vi­sion show in 2012, feel­ing the pres­sure of be­ing seen as a role model for trou­bled teens.

Now Eden calls her Queens­land farm home and is first-time mother to five­month-old son Blay­den, who she de­scribed as “a pretty chilled kid who seems to like me belt­ing songs around the house”.

Her new sin­gle Lone­li­ness, which fea­tures in OzHar­vest’s com­mu­nity aware­ness pro­gram, refers to some of the dark times she bat­tled.

“It talks about the stuff I’ve been through and things we’ve all been through in some form or an­other, feel­ing alone and re­jected,” Eden said.

“But it’s also about stay­ing pos­i­tive and be­liev­ing that things will come around.”

The singer, who cites Ja­nis Jo­plin, Jimi Hen­drix and Amy Wine­house as mu­si­cal icons, will bring her na­tional tour to Perth with shows at Ravenswood Ho­tel, June 12 and Charles Ho­tel, June 13.

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

“Ob­vi­ously I’ll be 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. I sing with a lot of pas­sion and emo­tion, so I’m hop­ing peo­ple connect with that.” THE West Aus­tralian Sym­phony Orches­tra’s Mas­ter Se­ries comes to the stage next month.

The Pic­tures at an Ex­hi­bi­tion con­cert will see the WASO de­but of Amer­i­can/Ja­panese con­duc­tor Eu­gene Tzi­gane, who will lead the orches­tra through a pro­gram of mu­sic from An­tonin Dvorák, Wolf­gang Amadeus Mozart and Mod­est Petro­vich Mus­sorgsky.

The con­cert is at the Perth Con­cert Hall on June 5 and 6.

Pic­tures at an Ex­hi­bi­tion will also be per­formed at the Perth Con­cert Hall as part of the Morn­ing Sym­phony Se­ries on June 4.
