Karli Edging is a 22-year-old vocal sensation who is catching people’s attention and moving toward a bright country music career.
A Purdue University student, Karli is one of the bright young vocal stars of central Indiana. She opened some eyes and ears early on in her career as a preliminary act for rising country star Levi Riggs and his band in November of 2011 during a charity concert at the Long Center for the Performing Arts. Her performance of “Cowboy Casanova” reminded many listeners of Carrie Underwood.
“She’s a great young talent with very good pitch,” says Riggs. “She has confidence and a lot of potential. I was pleased to have her as a lead-in to our portion of the charity concert and to have her as a vocal back-up in some of our recent performances. I think we’ll be hearing a lot about her in the future.”
Karli was born and raised in Delphi, IN. She has been performing since the age of three years old as a ballet student (for nine years) in the Lafayette Ballet Company. She has been singing since she was four in many types of venues. She is in high demand at church services, weddings, funerals, community gatherings, school concerts, fairs, festivals, and sporting events. She has recorded multiple times at the Gaither Studios, with her most recent CD self titled "Karli Edging". The CD Is available for sale here on her website.
“I enjoy singing very much and it is a strong passion of mine,” says Edging. “But, it was ballet that sculpted me into the person that I am today. Ballet disciplined me and showed me how to keep a balanced lifestyle, while helping me develop my performance skills in front of crowds. It taught me how to be confident, take command, entertain, and not be intimidated by the audience.”
Area music experts are seeing a positive future for Karli.
“I think she’s a country music star in the making,” says Chuck Aaron of Crown Artist Management, Inc. “She has an outstanding voice and a wonderful stage presence that will continue improving to entertain audiences.
