Discovered by worldwide 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. Today, new singer songwriter CHARLOTTE celebrates her 21 st Birthday with the release of her debut single  ‘I Tell Lies’ through  The Orchard.

Taken from the  ‘Nowhere To Hide’  EP – out on  3rd May, CHARLOTTE also announces her first London headline show at  The Waiting Room on  26th March and in her hometown of  Hull at  The Tunnel Bar on 30th March. Tickets are available from noon today.
Having already written with, and for, artists including  BRIT-nominated  Mabel, JP Cooper, The Vamps, Aloe Blacc and Liv Dawson, 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, whilst also highlighting  CHARLOTTE'S innate songwriting ability to write a hook and catchy melody.   CHARLOTTE explores the painful journey from child to adult in brutal honesty with heart-rending beauty, addressing those difficult teenage years - battling everything from body confidence and unrequited love to independence and loneliness.
With early support from  SBTV that filmed a live version of  ‘Just Me’ and New Music Friday on Spotify today -  the fully biographical EP gets released on  3rd May and is kickstarted by the release of lead track  ‘I Tell Lies’ produced by  The Orphanage - aka - Trevor Brown and  Zaire Koalo (Kehlani, Aleissa Cara, Demi Lovato) – which received its first play on  BBC Introducing last week.
CHARLOTTE explains , “There are four songs on the EP and I’m vulnerable in every one of them. That’s scary. I’m guilty of bottling up my emotions and when I was growing up I thought my feelings were unique to me - but I know now I was wrong – and lots of people are going through similar struggles. I wish I had known that at the time. Hopefully at least one person will hear I Tell Lies or Just Me and realise they’re not alone.”
Hailing from Hull,  CHARLOTTE finally got her break last year, when she was discovered by  Grammy-nominated global hit maker  Toby Gad (Beyonce/John Legend/Fergie) -  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 live dates are:
26th                   London, The Waiting Room     
30th                        Hull, The Tunnel Bar
