Leeds native, Charlotte, comes from an electronic music background, having worked alongside a number of well-respected dance music producers, with a noticeable leaning towards all things drum and bass. Responsible for some of dance music’s most exciting and well received vocal excursions in recent years, she has written and performed alongside the likes of Mike Perry, Hybrid Minds, Mike Mago, Sub Focus, Sigma, Friction and My Nu Leng amongst many others.
Across July and August last year, Charlotte had a string of high-profile dance releases. Her most recent success was co-writing two songs for one of the UK’s hottest artists, Becky Hill, on her highly anticipated debut album ‘Only Honest On The Weekend’ (UK #7). Becky’s single, “My Heart Goes (La Di Da) (feat. Topic)”, spent four consecutive weeks at #11 in the UK Official Charts, received a BRIT Certified Gold Award to recognise sales in the UK of more than 400,000 units and surpassed 100 million streams on Spotify. During this period, Charlotte also co-wrote the song “Risk It All” by Ella Henderson, which was added to BBC Radio 2’s A List, and featured on Shane Codd’s summer track “Always On My Mind”, which received massive support from UK radio stations Capital and Kiss. Syncs for “Always On My Mind” included a placement on the final of UK TV show Love Island and the use of the song in the trailer for The Only Way Is Essex, Series 29, on ITVBe.
Charlotte’s gifted storytelling has translated from dance music to mainstream pop, and so far she has co-written songs released by Montana Tucker, Hannah Jane Lewis and Charlotte OC.
Whilst Charlotte continues to enhance her reputation as a songwriter for others and perform alongside many of her musical friends, 2020 was a milestone year as she stepped out into the spotlight to release her debut solo single “Carried Away”, and follow-ups “Daydreamer” and “Young”.
