If you don’t know Charissa, now is a wonderful time to get yourself introduced. The Burlington, ON singer-songwriter draws from the sounds and vibe of Americana and classic Soul to craft her style, and it’s working. For Ontario country fans who don’t know her yet, that introduction can happen live at the 2021 Country Music Association of Ontario New Faces Showcase and Concert (September 3, 2021) at the Ancaster Fairgrounds in Hamilton. Charissa will perform alongside emerging favourites, including Robyn Ottolini, Aaron Allen, Genevieve Fisher, and more!
Still in her mid-20s, Charissa is no stranger to the stage, with more than a decade under her boots already. In fact, you can go back to the summer of 2009, when a 12-year-old Charissa wowed the judges at the CNE’s annual Rising Star Talent Competition, winning the junior and grand champion honours. That kickstarted her journey to where we are now and along the way, performances at the Sound of Music Festival, The Dakota Tavern, the legendary Blue Bird Cafe, and more.
With a rich, powerful voice, Charissa makes an immediate impression through the speakers. As she grows as a writer and performer, we’re sure to get more of the same and then some. The important takeaway is this: Charissa is ready for your attention right now.
A peek at her social media channels shows us that Charissa has been back in the studio recently, which means that new music is going to be coming – that’s always something to smile about!
We know that everyone is ready for live music to come back, for performances from big stars and emerging artists, and we’re strongly suggesting that you look for Charissa’s name when you start making your plans. We will be.
