Supreme vocalist, composer and producer Charlotte Dos Santos flies in from Norway for her first London show since selling out Jazz Cafe last year.
When Outkast’s own Big Boi heard the song ‘Move On’ he described Charlotte Dos Santos as a beautiful voice with sensitivity one could touch.
Whilst Charlotte spent her life in four different countries over three years, her debut project Cleo took shape ending up functioning as a diary for the Norwegian Brazilian composer, producer and vocalist. The metamorphosis of womanhood, falling in and out of love, betrayal, self realization and the passion for uplifting female musicians of colour are all subjects of the restless musicians 10 track EP.
Charlotte attended jazz studies at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts (2013–16), where she earned a Bachelor of Music in Contemporary Writing and Production, and Vocal Jazz Performance. Her undefinable sound has been compared to Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and Kate Bush, but to Charlotte her sound is nothing but a representation of her mixed background and influences.
She has been referred to as “Norway’s best soul artist” She has since been referred to as both enticing and promising by Gilles Peterson, Pitchfork and Bandcamp. Dos Santos is now working on her debut album, which will be completed in early 2019.
With a new album in the offing for 2019, Charlotte will have plenty of new material in the bag for her biggest London show to date.
