Charlotte Strawbridge is a British singer-songwriter, daughter of television presenter and environmentalist Dick Strawbridge. Her music is described as that of a discontent angel, one who places more importance on texture than purity. Her harmonies and celebrated imperfections attest to her strong belief of the beauty intrinsic in all ugly things.[1] In 2009 she released her first album, Breathed a Song, a collection of soulful ballads written and performed by Charlotte.

Biography

Charlotte spent a year in Cuba studying traditional Cuban guitar and song, attended the Folk and Traditional music degree[2] in Newcastle upon Tyne, and whilst on the degree she joined the Sage Gateshead’s community music apprenticeship scheme, where she was a music leader.
