'A gift for Melody, brave, poignant, entertaining and original' The Guardian ****

Although best known as a respected songwriter for others, Tina Turner, Status Quo, and Paul Carrack, Charlie has enjoyed a multi-faceted carear, that includes acting, comedy improvisation, writing for Radio, and composition for T.V. And Film, as well as performing with her band.

Signed by Chris Blackwell in 1978 to Island Records her first Nashville recorded album produced the Single 'Pilot of The Airwaves' which became a bit hit in the U.S.

After working for Thames TV presenting the popular 70's Children's TV Show Rainbow, she went on to writing songs 'Ain't No Doubt ' for Jimmy Niall, Rain, tax, inevitable, for Celion Dionne and Strut, for Sheena Easton.

'An amazing astute, moving and intelligent connected songwriter, a voice like Kate McGarricle meets Dory Previn.' Mike Harding.

She quickly swaps instruments, and stories of a life led in the company of friends and colleagues like Eric Idle, George Harrison, and Harry Nilsson.

Her 9th Album Dark Matter has been widely applauded to date winning both Album Of The Year and Best Lyrics from the USA Indie Acoustic Project 2018 and described as Metaphysical themes versus small dramas with humans routinely baffled by their own innerspace.

A homegrown project in collaboration with multi instrumentalist Julian Littman of Steeleye Span, and virtuoso Double bass player Gareth Huw Davies who works with Chrissie Hynde (The Pretenders) and Sir Willard White.
