I am the type of person that watches VH1 and other music channels, so judge me if you want, but I always get the heads up on new artists on the rise. One of my new favorites that is starring on my iPod playlist currently is Charlotte Sometimes, who has fun and interesting girly music like I have never heard before. She is from Pennsylvania, and she actually took her name from a children's book written in 1969.
Her debut album is called Waves and the Both of Us, and it is said to sound like a mix of Fiona Apple, Jeff Buckley, and Billie Holiday. The album is supposed to tell a story of all of the different currents that run through our lives, some being dramatic and some being uplifting. Charlotte has an onstage persona that makes her an interesting and seductive performer. My very favorite song by her is "How I Could Kill a Man", which is a lyric from a Cyprus Hill song. That's pretty interesting if you think about it, because this songstress was able to take a classic rap song and make it into a melodic hit. "Killing" is supposed to be a metaphor, by the way, so don't worry!
