From Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Karimah has always loved exploring her point of view through art. Painting, clothing design and acting always tempted her, but after teaching herself a few chords on the guitar and writing her first songs at age 16, music has held her focus.
After experimenting with styles from Blues, progressive rock, EDM in various collaborations, Karimah has made her foray into R&B/soul She is currently working on creating her own unique sound, which she likes to call Noir Soul. This fuses her love for soulful vocalisations, eclectic retro inspired sounds, and dark lyrics.
As an anglophone with a francophone education, she had the opportunity to step into the french music making with the singer/songwriter competitions Polyfonik and Chant'Ouest, where in 2014, she won both the people's choice and grand prizes. She went on to represent Alberta at the competition at La Festival International de la Chanson de Granby, QC in August 2015. She may not have won any prizes there, but her performance won the hearts of many, as she was asked to do a pre-audition for La Voix season 5 in 2016. She went on to have a very successful Blind Audition on the show, having all 4 coaches turn for her, eventually choosing Pierre Lapointe as her coach and eventually reaching the top 24 at the Quarter finals of the show.
