About

Karissa Ella is a breath of fresh air in today’s world of country music, and she’s been recognized for it by CMT and countless more media outlets. Inspired by the likes of Shania Twain, Gretchen Wilson, Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, her music and writing are a reflection of those that came before her. Her live performances at places like the ACM-nominated Dusty Armadillo, attract audiences of all ages, but they keep coming back for her infectious personality and genuine songwriting. As an Ohio native, Karissa made the move to Nashville to attend Belmont University and pursue her dreams. After graduating in June 2018, she completed her self-titled EP, having co-wrote the majority of the songs. Her second EP, Blossom, came out Summer 2019 with songs like “VACAY” featured by Parade.com and “Me and Luke” byTaste of Country. As she draws inspiration from the music she grew up on, Karissa released The Acoustic Sessions, made up of multiple covers, including  “Who I Am,” “Maybe It Was Memphis,” “Blame It On Your Heart” and “You Can’t Make Old Friends” ft. Johnny Gates and Jenee Fleenor (2x CMA Musician of the Year and ACM Musician Of The Year). Karissa put out two original singles in 2021, “Bad Summer” and “Crackin’ Cold Ones”, and rounded out the year on the road with GRAMMY-nominated country star David Nail on his Bootheel 2021 Tour. With new music and tour dates on the horizon, Karissa is gearing up for a big 2022! For more information, visit karissaella.com.
