BIO

Carissa Biele is a genuine and multi-talented female artist with the classic sound music fans around the world are yearning for.

Carissa Biele is an entertainer, currently, integrating both a music and television personality career. Carissa was raised in Missouri and resides in Nashville, TN.

 

Aside from her ability to sing, song write & "Steal a stage," Carissa has a solid resume including news/entertainment anchor, radio personality, producer, manager & motorsports maven. Not to mention, she is highly educated (MBA). 

 

Carissa’s experience began as early as 11 years of age as a local studio dancer and star of children’s community musical theatre productions. She began working for her favorite country classic radio station at the age of 18 as a “MRN NASCAR broadcast” board operator, which led to a morning show co-hosting position with Zimmer Radio Group.

 

After high school, Carissa transitioned into television hosting on local cable show, “Ozarks in the A.M.” and “Your Lake Today.” Biele also kept her passion for motorsports rolling forward by volunteering for promotional and reporting work at regional raceways. She was awarded the title of “Miss Gateway” in 2008 as a result of her dedication and hard work at Gateway International Raceway in Madison, IL. 

 

Memphis Motorsports Park offered Carissa a business development coordinator position at the end of her local television contract, which moved her to Tennessee.  Carissa started her first professional band in Memphis and paid shows started flowing as fast as the beer on “Beale Street.”

 

During her time in Memphis she freelanced as a production assistant for several Speed TV series such as “Pinks All Out” and “PassTime.” 

When Carissa’s parents became ill, she made the decision to accept a Missouri CBS affiliated news anchoring position, move back to her roots and continue her education in graduate school.  

 

Once Carissa obtained her Masters degree she moved to Nashville, formed a new band and began working as a co-host and pit reporter for the IHRA race series. Carissa also created a custom liquor and wine LLC with a Missouri business owner. 

Carissa is an entrepreneur. She has a second solely owned & operated LLC for her hosting, spokeswoman, music, video editing, producing, marketing and new concept work. 

In 2016, she was the featured Pit-reporter on a motorsports game show called “Pinks All Out,” which aired on The Outdoor Channel.  In her spare time, Carissa cut an original album with producer Dustin Hough at Studio 19 which is now part of the Sound Kitchen in Franklin, TN. The album, titled “Karma,” is now available online.
