Karissa Lee was discovered originally by PMW Music during their National New Artist Search held in San Francisco, Ca in 2012. Equipped with her guitar and the latest Taylor Swift song, she impressed the judges with her vocals, musical style and high-energy personality. She was then offered a 1-song record deal (Our Summer) and that later turned into a 2-song deal (Over You). Besides her love of music, she also dances competitively at Dance Elite All-Stars in Rocklin, California and can be seen performing on stage at various local community theaters. Karissa hopes that her music will help open doors for her to help others in the community, with a focus on cancer research, as her father is currently in remission.“Following your dream is not supposed to be easy, that’s why not a lot of people do it, but I’m not those people, I’m different,” comments Karissa. Known for her wild, leopard print and pink inspired fashion sense and signature mix-matched socks, Karissa Lee is different for sure! Check out her website at www.karissalee.com.
