The upbeat country tune, according to the Nashville based singer/songwriter, “is a nod to all the strong women out there.” With a catchy hook that encourages girls to be the best versions of themselves, Karissa says the song is a reminder to “keep her head held high” and be her “weird, creative, dorky self” because “its what makes her unique.”
“While listening to this song, I hope listeners smile and dance along! I want listeners to think about who they are, what their style is, and what makes them so special. We are all unique, strong, and beautiful and I think that is something to celebrate,” she tells Celeb Secrets exclusively.
Co-written by Karissa with friends Kalsey Kulyk and Alex Seier, “Girls” was penned before the mandatory stay-at-home order due to the Coronavirus pandemic that began earlier this year. ” I knew that during this time I wanted to make the most of it and put out a new song,” she says. “Recording music during quarantine was very interesting but we made it work six-feet apart.”
Karissa Ella’s youthful and soulful style is a breath of fresh air in today’s world of country music. Inspired by the likes of Shania Twain, Gretchen Wilson, Garth Brooks and Carrie Underwood, her music, writing and live performances attract people of all ages.
Armed with a Music Entertainment Degree from Belmont University and having been singing for crowds from the young age of 10 years old, Karissa is one of country music’s rising stars! In June 2018, she completed her first EP, having co-wrote two of the three songs. “Had Enough,” “Get Drunk Drink” and “Yard Sale” are all songs that are representative of what’s happening on today’s country music scene. Her second EP, Blossom, came out Summer 2019 and featured her critically-acclaimed single “VACAY.”
Making a decision to put things on hold due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Karissa confirms to Celeb Secrets that more music will come at the end of this year into 2021.
