Synopsis

Album Description
"The New York-based, guitar-playing, nu-jazz chanteuse picked her moniker, which doubles as her band's name, from the Cure song - and it totally works, since Charlotte is her middle name, which she sometimes goes by. (She swears she'll never reveal her first and last names.) The band's February debut album, "Waves in the Both of Us," is full of genre-crossing songs that run the gamut from uplifting to traumatic, reflecting the many sides of the singer who mined her love life and neuroses for song subjects." - NY Post "I want to make sure that whole emotional connection is in each and every word and in each and every note of my songs, because if that's not there, then what's the point in music? Music is supposed to transport you somewhere. It's supposed to make you feel connected to something." As a performer, she's flippant and seductive, and as a songwriter, she gravitates toward the shadier elements in life, like spiders and Valium ("Sweet Valium High"), using the eclectic imagery to dissect the dynamics between women and men. Having poured so many of her influences into her music she's not entirely sure which genre it's intended for, except that it pulls liberally from throughout her own personal arsenal of loves and neuroses, including dark poetry, dance beats, and indie folk.

"Killer voice, but the songs are what will stay with you. This is ground breaking stuff. This taste will make you long for the full album coming out in May."
Love it.

"The only problem with this is that it is only 3 songs long. I've got to get the full album. I'm guessing that Charlotte Sometimes is the kind of artist people will either love or hate. I'd say if you love Tori Amos, P.J. Harvey, Kristin Hersh, Charlotte Martin, or Regina Spektor, you'll love Charlotte Sometimes."
