Soulful singer- songwriter Cariss Auburn shares new single ‘Too Tired To Sleep’

Cariss Auburn is a melodic & soulful singer-songwriter and self-taught producer from Wolverhampton whose influences range from 80s funk and soul to 90s R&B.  Previously longlisted in Glastonbury’s Emerging Talent Competition Cariss has opened for soul legend Alexander O’Neal at The Jam house Birmingham & performed at Various ‘Sofar Sounds’ sessions across the UK.

Cariss’ radio-friendly sound recently caught the attention of BBC London (Sunny & Shay), BBC West Midlands (Introducing), Capital Xtra (Leah Davis) as well as radio stations across North America & Australia.

Cariss says, “My music is a form of personal catharsis and because of that, often covers the sadder emotions in life, but always with a little optimism – either in the lyrics or the music itself. My new single, ‘Too Tired To Sleep’ was inspired by the insomnia I experience from time to time. It’s almost as though I lose the motivation to sleep because it means starting another day. My mind won’t shut off, so I stay up to try and get tired enough to sleep – but thinking about sleeping just becomes another pressure! The song was a result of me navigating the frustration of being trapped in this loop’.

Cariss is set to embark on a 5 date soul acoustic UK tour organised by Punch Records later this year (postponed from March due to the Covid-19 Pandemic).
