Anyone who sees Karlijn de Vries (aka Karlie, born in Amstelveen) perform can be sure: this singer is born to be on stage. Her voice, charm and performance are overwhelmingly impressive. She won’t let you go.
When she discovered her voice while working on a musical as a kid, she found out where she really felt home: in the spotlights, center stage, holding a microphone. And with success. Since then Karlijn sang in a lot of bands and became the singer she is today.
Her typical rough edge makes Karlijn’s voice very recognizable. Pop and soul come to her very naturally, but she can easily blow you away when she sings rock songs. Whether in a small acoustic setting with a guitarist or pianioplayer, with a DJ or with a big live band; this petite blonde is able to shine under any given circumstance in any venue.
Currently Karlijn sings in several bands in the Netherlands and abroad. And it’s quite diverse. Gigs with several coverbands (f.e. Session, The Recipe), studiosessions, mc/vocalist-gigs with DJ’s and her soloproject Karlie, she is currently touring through the Dutch theaters as a backingvocalist from Dutch rockband The Pilgrims (PunkSoulRocknRoll).
You can book Karlijn as a voice-over and vocal coach as well. Alongside her singing career, Karlijn is also active as a model and an actress in television and movieprojects.
A singer with an unique sound, who can work very easily in all the facets of the music business.
