In The Spotlight

CHARLOTTE – “I Tell Lies”

Hailing from Hull, this remarkable British singer and songwriter started singing and playing in her grand-parents touring band aged 4 and, influenced by classic soul legends like Aretha Franklin and Otis Redding, began writing her own songs aged 7. Discovered by renowned hit maker Toby Gad, her unique sound adds a modernity to classic soul and lyrically infuses it with a brutal honesty.

Her debut single starts with just an acoustic guitar and the introduction of her powerful, soul-touched voice, which has an emotive depth well beyond her 21 years. Taken from her upcoming debut EP “Nowhere To Hide”, which is due to drop on May 3rd, she dipped a bit of perky bossanova into classic soul, added some authentic vinyl crackle and created a bubbly smooth groove that’s no lie.
