Alt Pop group Karmina is performing at Leo Burnett's famed "Artist in Residence" showcase Thursday January 16, 2014 @ 1:30 PM. This is the first in a series of 2014 in-agency concerts from LA music boutique Visual Music and creative director Tom Seufert. Karmina will perform songs from their upcoming release "Queens of Heart" and are experienced collaborators interested in partnering with creative teams and licensing songs from their catalog.

Karmina’s imaginative arrangements and rich vocal harmonies have appeared in major television shows including Pretty Little Liars, Shameless, Ravenswood, CSI: NY, Switched At Birth and How I Met Your Mother, among others. They’ve written, sung, produced and performed a vast catalogue of original music; toured the US, UK and Europe; and opened for Sheryl Crow, Sara Bareilles, Carol King, Train and, most recently, John Legend at the Los Angeles Nokia Theatre. The group is comprised of sisters (Kelly and Kamille) who have created a musical style that entwines their classical training, alternative stylings and lush pop sensibilities.

After back-to-back 2013 summer tours of France and Israel, Karmina is back in the studio breaking ground with a new record that features the orchestral arranging of storied, award-winning film composer John Powell (How to Train Your Dragon, The Bourne Identity). Critics have described their new cinematic indie-pop sound as “a cross between Florence Welch and Mumford and Sons” replete with vivid imagery and enthralling storytelling. Their new release, Queens of Heart, pays homage to powerful women who have made an impact – much like KARMINA strives to do in 2014.

While in Chicago, Karmina will also be appearing at the Apple store at 7 PM January 16, 2014 and Uncommon Ground (Devon location) Friday January 17.
