LOS ANGELES, CA-
“…Closing out the evening’s musical fare was the soulfully lovely singer/songwriter Charlotte Jane. I absolutely loved her performance… particularly her voice. Of all of the singers this evening, she had the most control over her instrument. The tone of her alto mezzo voice was soooo rich, and the way she could flip into her head voice was totally effortless. And the runs? She makes it sound so easy. Apparently, she has several tour dates lined up with Rag‘n’Bone Man this summer, and after hearing her sing, I think Rag’n’Bone absolutely made the right choice.
For this performance, she was only accompanied by an acoustic guitar. I, for one, would love to hear her voice in the midst of a full band. She opened her set with the song “Down Days”, and after hearing her studio recording post-performance, I longed to hear her voice counterpunch the horn of the section in the chorus. The same goes for the single she debuted at this performance “10 Percent”. I suppose you could dance to the acoustic version, but I think the pulsing basslines and drum tracks from the recording are what you really need to get some booties shaking. As a little treat for her fans, she had Jordan MacKampa join her onstage for their collaboration “Reassure Me”.
Needless to say, I’m a little disappointed that Charlotte didn’t extend her stay in Los Angeles. I have a feeling that it’s going to be a little while before I get the satisfaction of seeing her perform live backed by a full band. Patience is a virtue I guess…”
