About – Charlotte
An ever evolving creatrix, sound weaver, musician and explorer of the spirit of play, this full-circle artist has been described as the love child of the Mad Hatter and Alice. Charlotte’s dwelling in voice and song began, vulnerable and wild, around 1991 when she began following the mysterious threads of singing on her family farm, pouring her heart into song, weaving moments through music and gifting them to the world. Charlotte will launch her self titled album featuring “Stay in Your Power” in 2018, and along with touring an improvisational theatre piece ‘Vocal Digs’, she improvises vocal music with other artists from different modalities, is a member of the ensemble FourNow, and is the originator and facilitator of The Musical Body.
I went to Charlotte Roberts Vocal Digs last night at La Mama and am still relishing the experience. An hour of raw, explosive presence. Charlotte’s vocal palette went from shocking to delightful, pitch perfect to edgy atonal. Shadows of Tim Minchin on piano and Laurie Anderson’s spilling quirks of language….The scattered instruments including harp, guitar, ukulele and crystal singing bowl became objects that at once animated and met Charlotte’s inquisitive resolve to become one with them and sink onto their dialogue.Ingrid Baring
