"The Joni Mitchell of the medicine music world" ~ Adrian Freedman
I am a medicine music singer songwriter from the UK. I have been sharing my music in sacred settings around the world for the past 15 years. I first started writing songs when I was crossing the Atlantic ocean on a small sailing boat. The rhythm of the ocean stayed with me which is why most of my songs are in 3/4!
The roots of my music come from years spent working in the Santo Daime tradition of Brazil and through practicing Indian classical singing. My love of words was honed through studying literature and philosophy at university. My songs articulate my journey as a spiritual being born into the chaos of this modern world. At the heart of this are my feelings as a mother looking forward into this uncertain future and having to hold a place of faith for the children despite the overwhelming despair that I feel when I witness the demise of our natural world.
My debut EP was released in the spring of 2022. The official video for the opening single ‘Across the Veil’ reached 20k people when premiered on Facebook. In the couple of years since its release I have received messages from people all over the world who have been touched by this song and it was chosen to support the Welsh "Pledge2Life campaign to raise awareness of male suicide in the UK.
I'm an artistic, shy, empathic person. I'm happiest when singing, spending time in nature and with my family and friends. I live in Devon with my husband, two daughters and my dog, Dusty.
LATEST PRESS RELEASE
"Featuring intricate acoustic instrumentation and soaring vocals, the single is a subtle yet powerful song about letting go: “Guiding spirits is a song of letting go and surrendering to the greater forces that are out of our control” explains Charlotte”. It explores the concept that we must lose ourselves in order to be found, experience hurt to know healing and ultimately meet death in order to fully understand life. If this song had an image it would be of a bird flying to the sun, dissolving into its golden rays and being reborn in full consciousness of its magnificence as part of the whole.”
‘Guiding Spirits’ is the latest single on a new 3-track EP which poetically traces the arc of grief and transcendence, introducing a truly exciting newcomer to the worlds of folk and new age music." ~ Evil Twin
