This week I’m chatting with Charlotte Martin. Charlotte is celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the release of her record Stromata.
Over the course of her career, Charlotte Martin has recorded both major label and independent releases, performed sold-out shows to audiences around the world and shared stages with the likes of Liz Phair, Pete Yorn, Damien Rice, Jason Mraz, and many others. Her music has been licensed for a plethora of television shows, including “So You Think You Can Dance,” which regularly features her song “The Dance” during the show’s open. Details magazine called her “a seductive performer” and “a skilled lyricist who writes with surgical precision” and Performing Songwriter praised Martin as “a born storyteller and affecting vocalist.”
In addition to taking a deep dive into discussing some of the tracks on the record, this conversation is full of lessons and insight about navigating a career in music business. Contrary to popular belief, it’s not all rainbows and unicorns after you sign a record deal.
