Biography

“The reputation of CONNIE KIS ANDERSEN as a quality singer/songwriter is about to be elevated to far greater heights with the release of her new album, simply entitled Connie Kis. … " Daryl Kirkup: Country Music Capital News

Connie Kis Andersen’s recent award as the;
2011 WEST AUSTRALIAN BEST COUNTRY MUSIC ARTIST alongside previous honours such as; '2010 Best Female Country Music Artist for Western Australia', 'Best Independent Country Music Album in 2008' and being named 'Best Female West Australian Country Music Vocalist in 2006' and the '2010 Best Female Entertainer', from the Wagga Wagga Country Music Club - Australian Country Awards has secured her reputation as one of the finest independent country music artists to emerge from Australia.

Connie Kis views Nashville as her ‘other home’ and journeys regularly to the USA to promote her music. Her latest self-titled project will be released in the United States on May 10th; with a CD release party scheduled the same day on the Billy Block Show at the Rutledge.

The first single from the album, STEAMY DREAMS, is currently going for adds at Americana and country radio and so her visit in May will be in support of the project through performances, media interviews and radio visits. She plans to return again in October to consolidate and follow up on the release.

Connie Kis is no stranger to success; her self-penned STEAMY DREAMS recently peaked in Australia as a TOP 5 hit on the AUSTRALIAN TOP 30 COUNTRY TRACKS chart.

Born in Copenhagen Denmark, raised in Australia, Connie Kis embraced her passion for music as a young child when she began learning her first instrument, the Banjo-Mandolin.

A twist of fate found her in a life changing accident and with her strong migrant work ethic, she ended up in the pursuit of an education instead ... resulting in a post grad teaching degree in special education.

Even though Connie Kis found this career rewarding, her desire for a music career never diminished and so she set her sights on performing once again.
With the award-winning response Connie Kis has received to her songs and performances, it was obviously the right choice … something which makes Connie Kis so unique…..a deep belief in herself, her ability to successfully follow her true calling and by doing so, shine as an example for others to never lose sight of their dreams.

"Congratulations on your new album Connie! It's great! You let your soul shine! I am honored to be a part of it!"
Deborah Allen: Grammy nominated singer/songwriter
