Introducing Charliee, an emerging singer-songwriter hailing from the UK and making waves in the pop music scene. Charliee’s journey has been a testament to her unwavering passion for music, singing, and songwriting. With a notable presence as the leading lady in college bands, she has evolved and strengthened her unique style as a pop artist. Join us as we delve into the enchanting world of Charliee’s music, where each note tells a story of creativity and resilience.

What or who inspired you to begin a career in music?

As a child, I faced social challenges, prompting a teacher to have a chat with my mum. They suggested that picking up music as a hobby might be beneficial for me. From that point onwards, I truly blossomed, discovering an outlet for my emotions and realising my deep love for singing.

What differs you and your sound from other artists in the music industry?

I’ve cultivated my own distinctive pop style, weaving together my personal experiences with those of people around me. This fusion allows me to craft stories that resonate, inviting listeners to interpret and relate to them in their own individual ways.

Your debut release, ‘Lose My Mind’ is out now via all major platforms. Can you please describe the creative process and inspiration behind the project?

‘Lose My Mind’ originated during a challenging period in my life. I was navigating the initial stages of a breakup when we received the track from Starkillers. I sensed a profound desperation in the music, and it resonated with the emotions I was experiencing during that time, ultimately inspiring the lyrics for ‘Lose My Mind.’

In your own opinion, what is the most meaningful song you wrote? What makes you say that one?

My most meaningful song is yet to be released, titled ‘Day by Day.’ The track delves into my daily internal struggle, as I navigate the challenges of functioning as a person dealing with mental health issues. It explores the tiredness that comes with the effort to lead a normal life, and creating this song has served as a cleansing process, helping me process many of my struggles and adopt a gentler perspective towards myself.

How do you handle the balance between artistic expression and connecting with your audience?

I utilise my music as a platform to express the trials and tribulations of navigating young adulthood, grappling with neurodivergence, and facing challenges in social interactions. I believe my audience finds solace in the reassurance that they are not alone, and together, we are forging a community of supporters who uplift one another.

Can you share a memorable or defining moment in your career so far?

The defining moment in my career so far has to be getting signed to Big Condo Records. I have spent the last 2 years in artist development just preparing for what’s to come this year. It feels surreal that all of my hard work is finally about to come to the surface, I really have put my heart and soul into this and I hope that shows.

What advice would you give to aspiring singer-songwriters who are just starting their musical journey?

My advice to anyone entering the music industry is don’t follow the trends. Stay true to you and stand out no matter how weird or awkward you think you may sound/look. Real is relatable and real is what the world needs right now.

What does the foreseeable future hold for you as an artist?

This year alone we have the Big Condo UK artists tour, I’m headlining three events and supporting at another 3 all around the country. I have a TV appearance to film in April and radio interviews all around the world. I also have more singles just waiting to be released so I am very excited for the year ahead. It’s a big one!
