Emma Charles

23-year-old “glowing folk-pop artist” (Ones to Watch) EMMA CHARLES is able to mix “effortlessly beautiful vocals” (American Songwriter Magazine) that “flutter upwards serenely through the loneliness and darkness like a beam of radiant light” (LA Weekly) with “savvy lyricism and intuitive musicianship offering layers not always seen in contemporary mainstream music” (Popmatters).

Hailing from the artistic enclave Westport, CT, in 2019 Emma graduated with honors from the prestigious Berklee College of Music and immediately began performing nationally, headlining and opening for singer-songwriters Howie Day and Tyler Hilton.

Now, the LA-based Emma is writing, recording, and continuing to perform. She returns east regularly to continue her long standing collaboration with producer Doug Schadt (Maggie Rogers, SHAED, Ashe). Says Doug, “It’s rare as a producer to come across an artist who is completely open to experimentation, while maintaining their vision of what a song is supposed to be. I think the results speak for themselves. Working on Emma’s latest material with her was an absolute joy, and I can’t wait for what’s next.”

Over the course of the past year, Emma has released two EPs—Connecticut and The Way There—garnering her positive attention in notable press outlets such as Ones To Watch, Ladygunn, and Wonderland Magazine. She is so proud of her releases, and can’t wait to work on and release more music in 2021.
