Hailing from Elva (a tiny, then-Soviet occupied town of 5,000 people in the forest) Estonia, Kerli always dreamed that her passion for music and performing would allow her to break out of her restricted origins and literally change the world. Her journey began when, at 14, she competed in and won the Baltics version of American Idol, which ultimately led to her signing at Universal Island Def Jam.
Kerli is now primed for huge success as she and her label gear up for her long-anticipated 2012 album release, which she describes sonically as "hot angels crashing a crazy rave." The album continues her journey into electronic dance music and includes collaborations with hit Swedish team "SeventyEight," plus Switch and Jonas Jeberg. "Moon Children, prepare to take over the Universe."
