Bio

Sydney electronic producer, DJ and songwriter Karmel Jäger started her musical journey on the violin at the age of 5. After teaching herself piano and studying viola, she discovered classical singing at the age of 16. Initially honing her craft at the Sydney Conservatorium, she spent three years abroad in the UK from 2014 where she studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, performed throughout Europe and recorded extensively as a session singer at AIR and Abbey Road Studios. She appeared on soundtracks for films, tv and video games, lending her voice to the likes of BBC’s Sherlock, The Avengers, Star Wars and World of Warcraft.
Her return to Sydney in 2017 has seen the artist land firmly on her feet, moving swiftly into the electronic music community and releasing her debut single Back of You, to critical acclaim from Triple J Unearthed and KISS FM. Charting at #2 on the Dance Charts and #7 on the Electronic Charts, this “knock out first track” and “classic-feeling anthem” is only just the start for this budding producer.
Karmel releases her second single, Trafalgar Square, in early 2019, with a debut EP set for release later in the year. With an eclectic music video and remixes on the way, Karmel will collaborate with international and local producers and develop her shows, both as a DJ and live performer, making for a jam-packed year ahead.
Karmel’s sonic journey into the electronic scene has seen her flourish into a versatile artist making her one to watch. She continues to explores her developing musicianship and artistry across a wide variety of genres, likening her sound to Roisin Murphy mixed with Robyn.

Karmel's exceptional voice carries this track. A strong bass and beats could overwhelm too easily, but this is a great mix. It's got energy and complexity without getting muddied or lost.
Great way to start the weekend!

I've been waiting to hear the final version of this song for longer than you can imagine ;-) But that's how long it takes when you're striving for perfection, and that's what Karmel does! The effortless manipulation of her own perfect vocals is hard to comprehend.
