Carissa Vales


CARISSA VALES IS A 25-YEAR-OLD SINGER AND SONGWRITER. ENGLISH, FRENCH AND SPANISH-SPEAKING, SHE COMPOSES HER OWN POP ELECTRONIC MUSIC IN ALL 3 LANGUAGES. IN FACT, SHE HAS BEEN CREATING HER OWN MUSIC SINCE SHE WAS 17. SHE HAS A FRESH, YOUNG, MODERN STYLE THAT IS TRULY HER OWN, AND A DETERMINATION THAT WILL NO DOUBT TAKE HER VERY FAR. SHE IS A VERY DRIVEN YOUNG WOMAN INDEED: SHE FOUNDED HER OWN PRODUCTION COMPANY, MECAM PRODUCTIONS, WITH TWO PARTNERS.

CARISSA HAS PARTICIPATED IN MANY SINGING COMPETITIONS AND FESTIVALS, AS WELL AS PERFORMED AT MANY POPULAR VENUES. MORE RECENTLY, SHE TRAVELLED TO LOS ANGELES TO AUDITION FOR “LA ACADEMIA”, A POPULAR LATIN AMERICAN TELEVISION SHOW. SHE REMAINED A PART OF THE 12 FINALISTS AND WAS NOTICED BY MANY PEOPLE.

BORN IN QUEBEC TO A FRENCH CANADIAN MOTHER AND A MEXICAN FATHER, CARISSA WAS IMMERSED IN TWO CULTURES. SHE SPENT HER CHILDHOOD BETWEEN MEXICO AND CANADA. IN 1999, SHE MADE QUEBEC HER PERMANENT HOME.

CARISSA DEVELOPED AN EARLY INTEREST IN MUSIC. SHE STARTED SINGING ALMOST AS SOON AS SHE COULD SPEAK! AS A TODDLER, SHE LEARNED 20 OR SO SONGS, WHICH SHE SANG TO ANYONE WHO LISTENED… AND THAT WAS ONLY A GLIMPSE OF WHAT WAS TO COME! WHEN SHE STARTED SCHOOL, SHE JOINED A CHOIR AND WAS IMMEDIATELY AND OFTEN ASKED TO SING SOLOS. AT THE AGE OF 13, SHE BROADENED HER ARTISTIC HORIZONS, SIGNED UP FOR PRIVATE SINGING LESSONS AND STARTED STUDYING THEATRE AND CINEMA.

THE CLASSES SHE ATTENDED AND HER GROWING EXPERIENCE IN SHOW BUSINESS REINFORCED HER LOVE FOR THE STAGE AND PERFORMING ARTS IN GENERAL. SHE SOON WAS ASKED TO AUDITION FOR DIFFERENT SHOWS, TO PARTICIPATE IN A FEW EVENTS AND SHORT FILMS, STUDIO RECORDINGS AND SO ON.

CARISSA WAS RANKED FINALIST IN MANY SINGING COMPETITIONS. SHE WAS CHOSEN THREE TIMES AS “JEUNE ESPOIR ENFANT SOLEIL” AND GAVE PERFORMANCES DURING THE SUN YOUTH TELETHON IN JUNE 2006, 2007 AND 2010. SHE SIGNED UP FOR THE “MUSIC ALL” CONTEST AND WAS AWARDED FIRST PRIZE IN DECEMBER 2006.

THESE DAYS, SHE IS RECORDING HER FIRST EP IN SPANISH, SCHEDULED TO COME OUT IN NOVEMBER 2012. ARMED WITH A STRONG BACKGROUND AND IMPRESSIVE MUSIC PERFORMANCE CREDENTIALS, CARISSA IS A PASSIONATE AND DETERMINED YOUNG WOMAN WHO POURS HER PASSION INTO HER WORK.
