With an electric performance energy and a vocal purity unlike any other, Carissa Amberly, a 16-year old singer/songwriter from Longview, Texas, is breaking onto the music scene trailing a growing number of fans. Her rich vocals combined with sincere country and gospel music written by some of today’s top songwriters have produced her first solo album, Letters (2007). This past year, Carissa has been both in the recording studio and on the stage. After winning first place in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame talent showcase in August of 2006, Carissa was immediately given the opportunity to sing in a music show that would later welcome the Gatlin Brothers, Billy Joe Shaver, Jack Greene, and Casey Rivers to the same stage. As a part of her prize package, Carissa was awarded a trip to Branson, MO to guest perform on the variety shows hosted by Mickey Gilley, Hamner Barber, Jim Owen, Jim Stafford, and Doug Gabriel. Now that the whirlwind effects of the contest have slowed down, Carissa has been performing in and around East Texas for audiences large and small – including the Great American Trucking Show with Truckers Complete in August of 2006, a fundraiser performance with Louie Gohmert in October of 2006, and even President George W. Bush and 10,000 others at the Presidential Rally on October 30, 2006. Whether she’s singing in front of fans or strangers, Carissa’s energetic performance captures audiences with sincerity in song and style. Word of her outstanding talent is spreading far and fast. Carissa will be making a trip to Nashville, TN to sing on Jeannie Seely’s music show as well as the Ernest Tubb's Midnight Jamboree. Carissa’s background in music is one grounded in honest country style and nurtured by gospel truth. She started performing in local opry’s as a young girl, and has since grown into a beautiful young lady with a mature style and a sound uniquely her own. Her growing popularity among true veterans of country music is taking her into wider horizons in the country music industry, and with an increasing number of fans of Letters (2006), few can argue with her aspirations for the top of the charts.
