Sydney electronic producer and songwriter Karmel Jäger explores her developing musicianship and artistry across a wide variety of genres, likening her sound to Roisin Murphy mixed with Robyn. Initially honing her craft as a classical singer at the Sydney Conservatorium and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (London), Jäger’s sonic journey into the electronic scene has seen her flourish into a versatile artist making her one to watch.
Spending three years abroad in the UK from 2014, Jäger has gained notoriety in the classical sphere, performing throughout Europe and Australia in notable venues including Sydney Opera House, Royal Albert Hall and the Barbican. Appearing on soundtracks for films, tv and video games, she lent her voice to the likes of BBC’s Sherlock, Marvel’s Avengers 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 Jager 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.
