About The Event
Following her on stage performances with Picture This over Five SOLD OUT Dublin 3 Arena shows. CHARLOTTE announces a headline Dublin show at The Grand Social on July 02nd (On sale Monday at 10am) along with new single ‘Nervous’ taken from the ‘Nowhere To Hide’ EP out on 3rd May.
Continuing in the footsteps of debut single ‘I Tell Lies’ – CHARLOTTE channels the frustrations of mixed romantic signals in ‘Nervous’, whilst also further illustrating her innate ability to write a hook and catchy melody. Exuding sassy self-determination, CHARLOTTE’s timeless pop is infused with a sumptuous, soulful vocal gift rooted in the tradition of soul’s greatest talents.
Hailing from Hull, CHARLOTTE finally got her break last year, when she was discovered by Grammy-nominated global hit maker Toby Gad – writer of ‘All of Me’ (John Legend), ‘If I Were A Boy’ (Beyonce), ‘Big Girls Don’t Cry’ (Fergie) and more. CHARLOTTE became the first artist and songwriter Toby Gad signed to his publishing company. After one writing session in LA he offered to sign her immediately.
CHARLOTTE'S journey began when she was 4 years old – singing and playing in her grandparents touring band around the UK & Europe; this was where she developed her love of soul music. Inspired by all the soul greats; Sam Cooke, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, Stevie Wonder and Otis Redding, CHARLOTTE spent her early teens performing in pubs until her family moved to Singapore when she was 14 years old – isolated from her friends and the life she knew, she started to write and sing every day, finding therapy in her music to cope with these inner struggles as a teenager.
The soulful, beautiful and melancholic ‘Nowhere To Hide’ EP reveals CHARLOTTE'S unique voice and timeless sound rooted in great soul and pop music of past and present. The first track on the EP is CHARLOTTE’s debut single ‘I Tell Lies’ – the video saw us glimpse into CHARLOTTE’S young life - with original childhood footage cut between a dynamic performance surrounded by her hometown friends. Directed by Tommy Davis (Billie Eilish, Rat Boy) - it can be watched here.
CHARLOTTE will play the Grand Social on Tuesday July 2nd with tickets from €12.80 incl booking fee on sale Monday 15th April at 10am from Ticketmaster
