Kelsy Karter & The Heroines

Kelsy Karter & The Heroines is a four-piece Australian/British rock & roll band whose debut album Missing Person was critically acclaimed and a thrilling introduction to a truly singular musical mind. 

Like all of the most electrifying acts, the band’s frontwoman Kelsy Karter is an unapologetic singer/songwriter who invites the audience into a beautifully strange world of her own making, a fantasia that’s equal parts rock-and-roll grit and wildly theatrical grandeur. Rolling Stone Magazine called Kelsy a beacon for female rockstars. Fueled by her mesmerizing vocal work accompanied by dirty electric guitars, Kelsy Karter & The Heroines display intricate storytelling and uncompromising outlooks on life, love, and self-liberation. Despite the defiant spirit that shines through nearly every song, the music is vulnerable and cuts deep for any listener. Kelsy Karter, an Australian theatre kid, fronts the band while drummer Sebastian Boyse, guitarist Matt Peach and bassist Tommy Gent all grew up together in Derby, England.

The band has spent the past few years touring the world as headliners, support and festivals, most recently in 2023 supporting Billy Idol across the US and Palaye Royale in EU. They are currently working on their second album which has been described by the band as an electric and emotional adventure. Their guitar-drenched sound steeps in elements of glam rock, punk and Britpop giving way to a sonic aesthetic both undeniably timeless and entirely of-the-moment..


Canadian-based singer-songwriter Emi Jeen burst onto the alt-pop scene as a solo artist in 2019, unveiling evocative tales that gracefully traverse the intricate terrain of love and heartbreak. Noted on stage for her theatrical energy and outspoken talent as a performer, it is also the vitality of her dark pop style and aesthetic that leaves no one indifferent!

In 2020 and 2022, Jeen attracted international attention with the releases of her first two EPs as an independent artist: “The Other Side” and “Why So Serious.” Both are powerful pop-alternative manifestos featuring hit songs such as “The Other Side,” “No Emotion = No Tomorrow,” and “Hurt U.” While her music follows a therapeutic logic of emotional externalization, she makes no secret of her diverse musical influences, which gravitate between the industry’s great female voices, and 90s-2000s pop. She also attracted attention after one of her videos went viral on TikTok with over 17 million views. Emi Jeen is now embarking on a new chapter in her career with the release of her third EP, “Terrible Perfect Timing,” set to be released in Ocotber 2023. Emi Jeen reveals herself with embodied confidence and promises new music inspired by 90s pop-rock, powerful vocals imbued with vulnerability, all while offering a glimpse of what audiences can expect from her live performances!
