Carisa is an award-winning singer-songwriter and worship leader based in Atlanta, Georgia. Classically trained in piano since age 4, she began combining her passion for music with her love of writing in middle school and soon afterward discovered her desire to write songs and create music that would influence and inspire people.
In 2014, Carisa released her sophomore EP Come Down, which features songs exploring a variety of topics including restoration, adoration, worship, sorrow and lament. The project was made possible through a Kickstarter campaign she ran earlier in the year, which received overwhelming support from friends and fans. Her debut EP Stop The Noise was released in 2011.
She currently leads worship at Roswell Community Church and was previously the Worship & Arts Leader for Grace North Atlanta.
When not writing music or performing, Carisa works in public affairs and communications for the City of Roswell, Georgia.
