A singer-songwriter and music producer based in Leeds, currently working on her third album.
Along with her band, she delivers an original combination of strong indie-pop vocal melodies, tribal-sounding drums and experimental, electronic soundscapes.
Her songs have already been broadcast on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio Leeds, by Alan Raw, who has said “her music transcends boundaries and crosses genres.”
In 2014 her track called “The One” was placed on BBC Radio 1’s playlist, as a part of BBC Introducing series. Consequently, KARI was invited to perform at the BBC RADIO 1’s BIG WEEKEND later in the year. The band played on the BBC Introducing stage and were well received.
Her new project is full of stark, vivid contrasts: between the realm of spirit and reality, between the powerful and the vulnerable, between the rhythmic and the melodic & between the brave and the quiet. Original and clever lyrics compliment the music perfectly, adding an even deeper spiritual dimension to the album. Kari’s strong vocal tones are mixed with a wide array of sounds, from alt-pop to electro and 80’s sounding adventures.
