Karise Eden has had a tougher life than most, and she's only 19 years old. A State ward who grew up living in more than 20 refuges, this once very shy girl found music after being fostered to a loving family who owned a music store. The family shared their love of music with Karise and introduced her to the guitar. Musically inspired by Janis Joplin, Axl Rose, Bon Jovi, Ian Gillian and Amy Winehouse, Karise has gone on to play festivals and various venues with her fostering family. She's never had a singing lesson in her life. If her career as a singer doesn't work out Karise would like to work with women who have been exposed to domestic violence.
