Shaped by a love of experimental R&B and pop as well as visual art, Cariss Auburn has become a multi-faceted artist to watch in the UK’s emerging pop scene.
Cariss is an ambassador for Gibson guitars, often spotted with her trademark baby blue Les Paul and her latest releases have garnered praise from the likes of Notion, COLORS, gal-dem, Dork and many more. She has seen continued support from Spotify, Tidal and BBC Introducing, gaining her first spins on BBC Radio 1, BBC 1XTRA and BBC6 Music. Shaping her unique sound with personal lyrics that navigate universal themes of familial pressure and societal expectations, Cariss’ brand new EP 'Imaginary Me' featuring NME Radio playlisted '50%' and new track 'Distraction' is out now.
