Karianne is a Norwegian singer rising in London. Her voice has already been critically acclaimed as “crystalline clear”, “joyously playful” and “heart aching in its sincerity”. Having already spent a number of years as a professional singer on cruise ships and events around the world, lockdown-life encouraged Karianne to step into the singer-songwriter role. She recently released her debut single Giving Love a Try. Karianne sings songs from a variety of genres, and is happy to receive song requests and learn them for you before your event. Available to book as a solo singer with backing tracks or as a duo with a selected pianist.

Customer questions

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That's usually fine as long as I have a couple of weeks notice. Keep me informed of any changes and I will always try to be as flexible as possible!

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

I am happy to provide music through my PA between sets until closing for an additional £100

How much time do you need to set up?

I'll need around 1 hour. If you need me to arrive before, I can do that for an additional fee agreed.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

As long as nothing else is arranged, I will bring everything I need for the event!

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

If a song isn't included in my song list there may still be a chance I already know it. If there is a special song you'd like me to learn I am happy to do this for you. I learn around 2 songs for free, and then there is a fee of £30 for any additional songs for this service to take into account rehearsal times.

Blackburn I, 1 year ago

Blackburn International [BI] were contracted by Viking Cruises to provide all of production entertainment for the entire Viking Ocean fleet as from 2017. This includes the provision of all of the entertainment production staff [x4 Production Vocalists per ship] and all of the Production Shows on each of their x6 ships. We have been blessed to have been graced by the hugely talented Karianne Kvalen for two contracts. Firstly on board the Viking Sun between April 24th and November 1st 2018, and then subsequently on board the Viking Orion between June 5th and November 15th 2019. If she ever decided to ‘run away again to sea’ we would welcome her back at any time in the future .... Karianne has a wealth of talents – both performance and personal. She has a wonderful warm and rich voice with considerable range and depth. She can adapt to numerous styles bringing a sincerity and signature depth of feeling to each – she is not often caught out! The ability to perform and present in more than one language is an extra addition to her considerable talents. During her second contract with us she acted as our Company Manager – a role that she performed with diligence and care. She took her other cast members under her wing and guided them thru the contract with humour and professionalism. On a personal level Karianne is wise beyond her years. She is a deep thinker – analytical and measured. I would, and did, trust her judgement over most. She can be joyously playful but never ‘misses the point’. If this reads as a glowing reference, I am pleased – this is what she deserves. I wish her only the very best in all that she does and have absolutely zero worries for her future – she will succeed and those with whom she works will be lucky indeed. With sincere regards, Chris Blackburn. Project Manager, Blackburn International.
