Once upon a time, two sisters named Kelly and Kamille
stumbled upon a secret musical garden that entwined classical
grandeur and lush pop sensibilities. They brought back melodies
inspired by soulful creators from Brahms to Bjork to The Beatles,
and they called themselves KARMINA—"song" in Latin.
Since then, KARMINA's transcendent arrangements and haunting
vocal harmonies have appeared on major television shows
including Reign, Pretty Little Liars, Shameless, Ravenswood
CSI:NY, Switched At Birth, and How I Met Your Mother
among others. They've written, sung, produced and performed
a vast catalogue of original music; toured the US, UK and
Europe; and opened for Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles, Carol
King, Train and, most recently, John Legend at the Los
Angeles Nokia Theater.
After back to back 2013 summer tours of France and Israel,
Karmina is full-speed-ahead back in the studio breaking
ground with a new record that features the orchestral
arranging of award-winning ﬁlm composer John
Powell (How to Train Your Dragon, The Bourne Identity).
Critics have described their new cinematic indie-pop sound
as "a cross between Florence Welch and Mumford and Sons"
replete with vivid imagery and enthralling storytelling.
Their new release, Queens of Heart, pays homage to powerful
women who have made an impact—much like KARMINA
strives to do in 2015.
