Charlotte is a composer, solo artist, and guitarist who initially came to prominence as guitarist and backing vocalist for alternative rock band Ash. After leaving Ash in 2006, she recorded and performed extensively with artists including Bryan Ferry, Bat For Lashes, KT Tunstall, Birdy, and NZCA Lines. Her fourth solo album, True Love, was released earlier this year – inspired by her love of science fiction, the album tells the story of Traveller, a heartbroken alien searching for love.

With a focused drive to develop her craft beyond her artist and performing career, Charlotte collaborated with fellow sci-fi obsessive and acclaimed director and film designer Gavin Rothery, creating an ethereal soundscape for his short filmĀ The Last Man.

She has also written the music for the Stella Feehily play, This May Hurt A Bit, directed by Max Stafford-Clark, and has collaborated with the European Space Agency on their visual content and live events.
