MEDIUM - Meet Nashville’s Rising Stars: Karissa Ella

"Each year you change and grow. Take a second to appreciate how far you have come and the music you have created. I feel like at the beginning I always felt in a rush. There is no rush, enjoy the process and the ride. Do things your way, it might not be like everyone else and that’s okay! Don’t be afraid to take time to find who you really are."
