Charlotte Eriksson, also called the GlassChild, is from Sweden, Gothenburg, but has always gone her own way, leaving people amazed by her determination and independence. Only 19 years old, she moved all on her own to London to pursue her music and prove what she can do. After only 3 months she has already played with a fullband at famous venues around London like the Water Rats, the Bull & Gate, the Enterprise etc. and she’s steady and carefully building a name for herself.
”I think you have to decide what kind of person you wanna be. Do you wait for things to happen, or do you make them happen yourself? I believe in writing your own story.” Charlotte surely knows how to make things happen, and as a firm believer in the go-for-it, she's now releasing her debut-EP on her own recordlabel – Broken Glass Records. Her strong personality and own songwritinglanguage is shining through the whole EP, with her powerful voice and ability to connect with people's emotions in every different way.
She’s already been named as ” the one to watch” by indie-musicblogs in both sweden, UK and US, and with high aims this is only the beginnning for Eriksson, and she's already planning her first UK-tour in the fall, and then her eyes set on the states early next year.
”My lyrics might be too honest, edgy and make people uncomfortable, but if that’s what it takes to reach them, I’ll do it. I want to shock people. Shake up the world. Make them think thoughts and feel things they never felt before. Leave a scar. I want to go above and beyond what’s expected of me. I want to do this so well that they can’t take their eyes off me. I want to be breathtaking.”

“There’s an ethereal beauty to Charlotte's vocals that speaks straight from the heart. She knows how to make every word count, how to tear the emotion from every syllable.”
