The JUNO Awards’ docuseries, Rising, is excited to announce the latest installment featuring the multi-talented, CARYS.
CARYS’ Rising follows the singer’s career, from her early successes on the hit Family Channel show, Backstage, to the viral discovery of her 2019 single, “Princesses Don’t Cry,” on the TikTok platform.
In a statement, she says “the documentary was so much fun to film. It was so empowering for me to be able to tell my own story and have the JUNOS team to bring it to life in such a visual and personal way.”
“When I started writing songs in my bedroom at the age of 12, I never would have imagined that it would lead me here!”
Starting in 2018 with its debut video starring electro-pop duo, Once A Tree, and continuing with profiles of Night Lovell, Ali Gatie, and Amaal, Rising is made possible with the support of Ontario Creates.
Born and raised with thoughts and aspirations of becoming a famous bassist in Sarnia, ON; Emily Plunkett now lives in Gatineau, QC, and considers National Capital Region home sweet home. A product of the Beatles, MuchMusic and the Southwestern Ontario summer festival circuit (circa 2000), her interest and love in concert photography came almost completely by accident when her journalism program at Algonquin College required courses in photojournalism (and she quickly realized that photos taken at concerts using a DSLR are enormously better than ones she was taking on a point-and-shoot she bought for a trip to England). She is extremely proud of the fact she has seen Sloan in some form or another 25 times.
