About Carly Rae Jepsen
Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen’s 2015 album E*MO*TION earned a host of rave reviews with several outlets – including TIME, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, People, Stereogum, Vulture, Complex, and Noisey- declaring it the pop album of 2015. The set featured the platinum selling single “I Really Like You.” One year later Jepsen released E*MO*TION Side B as a gift to her fans and saw it immediately rise on the charts. Jepsen’s U.S. debut album Kiss featured the blockbuster break-out hit “Call Me Maybe” which climbed to #1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries, has sold over 20 million singles worldwide and is certified Diamond in the United States. It earned Jepsen 2012 Grammy nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Jepsen spent much of 2014 starring in the lead role in the Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella. Jepsen also starred as the iconic Pink Lady, “Frenchy,” in FOX’s four time EMMY award winning musical GREASE: LIVE. Jepsen is currently working on a new studio album.
WITNESS: The Tour is Katy’s first run since the sold-out, 151-date Prismatic World Tour, which concluded in 2015 and was hailed by Rolling Stone as “a show to damage retinas and blow minds.”
Katy made her Capitol Records debut with 2008’s One of the Boys after signing to the label in 2007. She cemented her status as a global superstar with the follow-up album, Teenage Dream (2010). PRISM, her 2013 album, debuted at No. 1 on iTunes in 100 countries and has sold more than 12.5 million adjusted albums worldwide. With the singles “Roar,” “Firework,” and “Dark Horse” each surpassing the 10 million threshold including song sales and streams, Katy is the only artist to earn three RIAA Digital Single Diamond Awards. In her 10 years with Capitol, she has racked up a cumulative 18+ billion streams alongside worldwide sales of more than 40+ million adjusted albums and 125+ million tracks. She is the most-followed person globally on Twitter.
