MUSICIANS Karise Eden and Dean Ray will showcase their talents in the national Rebellion tour when it visits the Ravenswood Hotel next month.

Eden and Ray share a mutual admiration and understanding – two gifted artists who may have come to national prominence via reality TV but worked hard at their craft, writing, touring and honing their talents.

They are both by nature a little on the wild side and may not always fit the mould – the Rebellion tour is their way of saying “whatever you thought we were, we’re much more than that.”’

Eden won the hearts of Australian audiences in the first series of The Voice in 2012.

She has released two albums – My Journey, which stormed to number one on the ARIA charts and sold more than double platinum, and Things I’ve Done, which debuted at number five in late 2014 and is nearly gold.

Ray performed more than 150 shows nationally and internationally last year.

His debut single Coming Back hit number 1 on the iTunes Singles Chart with platinum status and his album achieved gold status.

“I love performing on stage,’’ Ray said.

“I love being in front of people and experiencing the energy of the live performance. There is nothing like it and that’s what drives me.”

His current single IOU is out now.
