Charlotte Carpenter is the perfect embodiment of the blues; out there, doing it on her own, taking her music and stories to the people across the UK and Europe, managing her own affairs, choosing her own destiny. This isn’t some ‘strong woman’ cliché, this is a nominative determinism; place a piece of wood in her hand and she will use it to craft something of value to the world around her.
Self-releasing her 4th EP Shelter and on vinyl for the very first time, it’s dynamic and cinematic scope and vision was one of her best creations yet. Alongside blues stomper ‘Fire’ which landed a TV sync on Sky One and ran for a total 6 weeks on the Virgin Radio playlist, Charlotte is winning acclaim from the likes of Louder Than War, Total Guitar, NME, Classic Rock alongside radio play BBC1, BBC 2 & 6 Music.
She has toured extensively across the UK and Europe with the likes of Marika Hackman, Alessi’s Ark, George Ezra, Jarrod Dickenson and Hunter Hayes and for 2018 she’s heading out to Europe and USA to coincide with a series of single releases.
