Charlotte Morris - Your Number One (Acoustic)
Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Charlotte Morris discovered her passion for music at a young age. “I’ve been playing instruments since I could walk and singing since I could talk,” the singer/songwriter explains. As a child, her parents would take her to classical concerts and musical theatre productions, igniting a fire inside of young Charlotte’s soul. “Every family car ride was filled with folk classics, musical theatre or classical music – Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Simon & Garfunkel, and Peter, Paul & Mary were all the soundtracks of my childhood.”
After starting violin lessons at the age of four, Charlotte taught herself how to play the guitar, piano (and melodica), ukulele, banjo, acoustic bass guitar and mandolin, and began taking her songwriting seriously by the age of twelve. “Music grew from something I loved to something I needed. That sounds wildly dramatic, I know, but before then I had never felt able to fully express myself.”
Describing her unique style as genuine, raw and emotional music with a purpose, Charlotte takes inspiration from female story-telling artists like Brandi Carlile, Sara Bareilles, Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, and The Chicks; as well as style inspiration from bands like Delta Rae and Fleetwood Mac. “These artists have really shown me that I don’t need to fit into a box. Everything I write is about my life. My lyrics are extremely personal and paint a very detailed picture about things I, and those I love, have experienced.”
In January of 2018, Charlotte joined Lonesome Traveler – a concert tour where the cast performed the history of folk music, starting with Woody Guthrie and ending with songs by the likes of Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell and Joan Baez. While on the road, folk legends including Tom Chapin, George Grove (Kingston Trio), Peter Yarrow and Paul Stookey (both of Peter, Paul and Mary) performed with the cast at various venues.
Charlotte released her debut EP “To New York, with Love” in June 2018, which received positive recognition from newspapers, music blogs and playlists worldwide. She paired the release with a kick-off performance at New York’s famed 54 Below, and began playing her original music at venues across the city. After her debut success, Charlotte released a number of singles, as well as a five-song EP (produced by Nashville-based Mitch Dane) entitled “Sputnik.” In the spring of 2019, Charlotte embarked on her first fully-acoustic tour, performing in over fifteen different cities across the United States, including Nashville, Austin and Baltimore.
Charlotte released her first full-length album, “Songs For My Next Ex,” in December of 2020. The eight-part “story album” takes the listener through the highs and lows of a tumultuous, yet transformative, relationship. The album received rave reviews from both national and international press. It was after this release that Charlotte decided to move out of New York City and become an official Music City resident.
Since moving to Nashville in 2021, Charlotte has established herself in the industry as an artist on the rise. In Spring 2021, she was selected as one of only 16 songwriters to participate in The Johnny Mercer Foundation’s Songwriters Project. During the project, she was mentored by world class writers including Lindy Robbins (Skyscraper, Day Drunk, Back to You) and Tony & Grammy Awards nominee Andrew Lippa (Wild Party, The Addams Family). Alongside Charlotte Avenue Entertainment, Charlotte released “Good Kind of Hurt”, a deeply personal song about addiction and PTSD, in June 2022, with the hope of spurring more conversation around the difficulties and misunderstandings of mental illness. She followed up that success with her nostalgia-filled, folk-driven, single “Tennessee”; and most recently, Charlotte released “Your Number One”, a driving song of empowerment that’s sure to take over summer playlists everywhere. With a full album on the horizon for Fall 2023, Charlotte’s career in this industry is just beginning.
