One listen to Charlotte Rossé’s music and it’s clear you’re experiencing a major talent. Operatically trained, Charlotte’s dramatic, grandstanding voice is a lightning rod of power and control. Praised for her aptitude even by her idol, the great Dame Shirley Bassey herself: “Dear Charlotte, I am in awe of your voice, it is so powerful”.
Gifted with such a voice, Charlotte could be forgiven for coasting in her songs, to let the vocals do the work. Instead, in songs as honest and compelling as Pray To You and her towering single Raise A Toast, Charlotte tells stories worthy of her vocals. Pop music is rarely treated to someone singing – really singing – their songs with so much conviction.
