South London songstress Jaz Karis presents her ‘Favourites’ compilation, 15 songs that best represent her past, present and future self spanning across R&B, Reggae, Afrobeats and much more. With a love for all things nostalgic, Jaz looks forward to presenting her music in vinyl form for her dedicated fanbase of music lovers.
The 25-year-old singer grew up in church choirs and performing was within her from as young as 7 years old when she began playing the piano and singing for anyone who would listen. Jaz’s music is healing, it’s a comfort blanket during a breakup or a friend when you are feeling in need. She is bursting with softness and packed with divine strength, her lyrics are intimate but relate to the masses, and she's a voice that will stand the test of time.
Filled with her stand-out singles and songs from her EPs; 'Into The Wilderness', ‘Summer Stories’, ‘All Eyes On You’ and her upcoming EP, ‘Dear Jaz’, the double-sided vinyl takes us on a journey through her life to date. ‘Summer Stories’ is still on heavy rotation with P2J producing many of the songs on the EP, an in-demand beatmaker who has also worked with likes of Beyoncé, Wizkid, Stormzy, FKA Twigs, Burna Boy, Tems and Doja Cat over the years. Jaz’s infamous single ‘Petty Lover’ - performed on the prestigious COLORS - features on the project and is an unrivalled fan favourite that embodies R&B in its purest form. As well her Juls produced single ‘Let Me Down’, ‘Favourites’ also includes guest appearances from TINYMAN on ‘Want’, Blue Lab Beats on ‘You Do’ and Afronaut Zu & Sillkey on ‘Sunrise’. Appearing on her new ‘Dear Jaz’ EP, a more recent release includes ‘Home’, a song that perfectly reflects the artist she is today.
South London singer/songwriter and Brit School alumni Jaz Karis is a strong force to be reckoned with.
The intelligent & creative lens in which she views life translates in her music. The sweet tone to her voice tells the stories of her real life experiences through her soul, jazz and R&B infused music.
Jaz received strong support from COLORS with her single ‘ Petty Lover’ gaining 10M views & 5.6M streams on Spotify. 2017 saw debut EP ‘ Into the Wilderness’ feature exciting collaborations such as TINYMAN, Blue Lab Beats & Spacey Blak who featured on the favoured ‘ Sugar Don’t be Sweet’. Her second EP, ‘ Live at the Diary’ reflects her love of performing live. In 2019 she released ‘ Summer Stories’ working with Ari Pensmith & P2j.
Her empathic nature extends beyond her artist project into her songwriting as its own entity of passion. Cuts include ‘ Secrets’, Justine Skye. Her latest EP ‘ All Eyes On U’ received exceptional support as Jaz graces the cover of Tidal’s Rising R&B & Amazon music’s fresh R&B playlists as well as further Apple & Spotify playlisting.
