Dami Im Classic Carpenters

 

Sony Music Entertainment Australia is pleased to announce that Dami Im's new album, Classic Carpenters has tonight come in at #3 on the ARIA Album Chart, #1 on the Australian Album Chart and #1 on the Physical Chart. The album showcases the stellar singer range through pop's past with Classic Carpenters  a covers album with a twist. Highlights include -There's A Kind Of Hush', -Rainy Days' and -Mondays, Close To You' and a personal favourite for Dami, -A Song For You'. For Dami personally, Karen Carpenter's resonance as an artist runs deep. Great songs are meant to be sung, and with this album, Dami Im takes us on a journey that encapsulates everything from homage to re-invention; and she does it wonderfully.

 

As Dami explains, 'My intention wasn't to copy Karen Carpenter's voice or her tone. Our voices naturally sound so different, so I tried to bring out the joy and the innocence in the songs while trying to sing them as honest and raw as I could as Dami."

 

'With this album and through my live performances, I hope to be remembered as the girl who is a real musician at heart who speaks truthfully through her craft."

 

This weekend, Dami will jet off to Europe ahead of her representing Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 in Stockholm, Sweden, set for broadcast on May 13th  on SBS TV. 

 

On Eurovision, Dami said, 'I am so thrilled and honoured to be representing Australia at Eurovision this year in Stockholm. I am really excited to be following in the footsteps of Guy Sebastian and Jessica Mauboy who have both graced the Eurovision stage before me. I truly believe that the Australian public and Eurovision fans around the world are going to love the song I will be performing in Sweden. I cannot wait to showcase it to the world and represent Australia to the best of my ability!"

 

After Guy Sebastian wowed Europe with a top 5 finish as Australia's first ever Eurovision contestant in 2015, the European Broadcasting Union and Swedish broadcaster SVT have invited Australia back for another dose of Eurovision glitz and glamour and another shot at Eurovision glory. 

 

SBS have selected Dami as the perfect artist to capture Europe's attention with her unique personal style and show-stopping voice; an artist who is ready to showcase our musical talent to the world.

Born in South Korea, Dami moved to Brisbane, Australia with her family when she was 9 years old.  Her adventures with music started earlier at just five years of age, which led to classical piano and a Masters degree in singing jazz. Although Dami had a noticeable talent for this genre, pop music was her real passion.

In 2013 Dami Im arrived in the spotlight, seemingly out of nowhere, and found herself a home in the sonic heart of Australia. Dami won The X Factor on the strength of her astonishing voice and palpable sense of artistry. More success followed as Dami earned multiple ARIA accreditations, including #1 chart positions and multi-platinum sales for the likes of her self-titled debut album and hit singles -Alive', -Super Love' and -Gladiator'.

It is obvious that Dami is not only an artist of the new millennium, but possesses a remarkably dynamic artistry that can transcend Australian borders. Her success has extended from her home in Australia to Asia including China, Hong Kong, Singapore and most satisfyingly, her birth country of Korea. Now 2016 is the year for Dami to exhibit her talent globally.

Dami will be hitting the road from July 1st to showcase the Classic Carpenters album – dates below with tickets on sale now.
