Kara Elyse is a young, multi-talented R&B and Pop-Soul singer, model, and actor signed to Impact Records/Universal Music Group. She recently debuted her single and video titled “Take Control” which hit nearly 200,000 views in the first week of its release. The song is an urban rendition of the classic tale of girl meets boy.
The entertainment industry is dynamic and competitive, with many acts making headway with either their personality, talent, or ingenuity. Kara Elyse is the total package bringing forth all three characteristics with full force. She has always loved music and believes her sound is a medley of R&B and Pop-Soul. She grew up in a household boasting a rather eclectic palette when it came to musical selections like Prince, Heart, TLC, Sarah Vaughan, Billy Joel, Chaka Khan, Steve Miller Band and countless other legends, who all, no doubt, have influenced her musical journey.
Her single “Take Control” is told from the perspective of a female protagonist who, unapologetically, is “choosy” and time-conscious, charging her suitor with one task: to be strong, bold and to not waste her time. “Take Control” consists of mellow grooves laced on top of a mild tempo and smooth production by 88Fingaz, and successfully blends cool, soaring melodies that are synonymous with ‘classic R&B.’ Kara Elyse’s playful nature shines through with phrases like “I ain’t boujee like that.” It is cool yet classy.
Kara Elyse will be kicking off her promotional tour mid-summer, with performances set for events and venues in Atlanta, Los Angeles, and other US cities. On July 7th, 2018 she will open for legendary R&B groups including SILK, 112 and Jagged Edge at Atlanta’s Wolf Creek Amphitheater. Additional performance dates can be found online at www.karaelyse.com.
This triple-threat will soon be releasing more music including her highly anticipated summer singles “So Good” and “Ex Dude” produced by two prominent Los Angeles producers.
In the meantime, “Take Control” is available for streaming across various digital platforms including YouTube, Tidal, iTunes, Apple Music and Soundcloud.
