Two of Australia’s most popular, and exciting live acts, Karise Eden and Dean Ray, will showcase their considerable talents in the national ‘Rebellion’ tour this May through to July. Hitting the road from Queensland right through to Western Australia and including Tasmania, they’ll perform a selection of their own material along with some special “duo” performances in a real treat for fans!
Karise and Dean share a mutual admiration and understanding – two gifted artists who may have come to national prominence via reality TV but have worked hard at their craft, writing, touring and honing their talents. They are both by nature a little on the wild side, and may not always fit the mould – the Rebellion tour is their way of saying, “whatever you thought we were, we’re much more than that”.
Karise Eden won the hearts of Australian audiences in the first series of The Voice in 2012, her raw talent, show-stopping vocal and refreshing candidness proving a breath of fresh air! She has released two albums, “My Journey” which stormed to Number One on the ARIA Charts and sold in excess of Double Platinum, and “Things I’ve Done”, which debuted at #5 back in late 2014 and is nearly Gold. The latter is an album of which Karise is exceptionally proud, having co-written all bar one of the album’s tracks.
Karise’s most recent Summer Soul tour across Australia played to full houses, and the ‘Rebellion’ tour will see Karise performing mostly solo for the first time since she became a household name.
Dean Ray has earned a formidable reputation as “the guy with a guitar and a story to tell”. He is quite possibly the hardest working man in rock and roll – last year alone, he performed more than 150 shows nationally and internationally. His debut single “Coming Back” hit No. 1 on the iTunes Singles Chart with Platinum status, and his album achieved Gold status.
Dean’s musicianship is extraordinary and his live shows demonstrate his playing and vocal prowess to perfection. Dean said, “I love performing on stage. I love being in front of people and experiencing the energy of the live performance… there is nothing like it … and that’s what drives me.”
Dean’s current single “IOU” is out now, and in between touring commitments he is writing and preparing for his second album to be independently released this year.
Don’t miss this very special opportunity to hear these two incredible voices live. The ‘Rebellion’ tour dates run from late May until mid July.
