Charlotte Sometimes discovered her passion for writing and performing music at 14 and it quickly became the focus of her world. The sounds she created garnered her quick attention and got her signed to Crush Management at only 16. Shortly thereafter she went through the most frightening experience she would ever know—after being diagnosed with a degenerative bone disease, her doctors informed her that there was a strong chance her jaw would be irreparably damaged and she’d be lucky if she could still simply speak normally after years of treatment. Charlotte fortunately she recovered in full and by 19 was once again able to start recording, releasing her debut album Waves And The Both Of Us in 2008 through Geffen Records to critical acclaim and landing on a slew of major publications’ lists of new artists to watch as well as a slot on that year’s Vans Warped Tour.

Having recently competed on Season Two of NBC’s The Voice, Charlotte will soon be releasing a new EP entitled The Wait produced by Sloan Alexander of Human Music Worldwide, and the title is utterly apropos. Whereas her earlier works did a beautiful job of encapsulating the arduous struggle that is growing up, she views her previous work as child-like in retrospect. “I blamed everyone but myself back then, but now I’ve finally finished something I feel is truly self-aware and confessional. I got tired of having to deal with labels and managers, and I’m eternally grateful to have gotten Sloan involved. We both really sunk our teeth in and he opened me up to a whole new approach to songwriting and production. The songs are very diverse but if I had to pick a central theme, I think it’s really about that difficult lesson all women struggle through on the path from adolescence to adulthood—learning to finally love yourself instead of wandering around looking for someone else to validate your worth.”
