DEBUT LP ALPHA IS OUT NOW
PRAISE FOR CHARLOTTE DAY WILSON
“Charlotte Day Wilson is a one-person powerhouse”
“Sparse, moody R&B is Charlotte Day Wilson’s signature”
“Charlotte expertly pulls inspirations from jazz, R&B and soul
and what results is an atmosphere that is solely her own”
“Wilson’s voice is warm, like a slow soothing hum with a touch of soul”
“Blending elements of jazz, soul, folk and R&B, Wilson writes deeply personal lyrics
and delivers them with the expertise of a seasoned vocalist”
“Wilson’s songs are plaintive and open, carried by the tenor of her voice
– rich, smokey and smooth, textured like the depths of the ocean –
and the wisdom they project”
“On her debut album, the Toronto singer-songwriter and producer draws variously from gospel, folk, and adult-contemporary influences; no matter the style, every song is a showcase for her powerful voice”
Toronto-native artist and producer Charlotte Day Wilson today releases a stunningly raw and reflective visual in support of ‘Changes’, a standout off her critically acclaimed debut album, ALPHA, out now via Stone Woman Music. WATCH HERE.
Directed by award-winning frequent collaborator Kevan Funk, the ‘Changes‘ video is a continuation of the ‘Keep Moving’ and ‘If I Could’ videos and the queer cinematic series for ALPHA, a compelling exploration of self-discovery and earnest declarations, recollecting Charlotte’s inner struggles of love, growing, and breaking that she’s finally speaking to in a greater way.
Charlotte shared the first single, ‘If I Could’, from her new LP in May, and premiered on Annie Mac’s BBC Radio 1 show. The track was launched with a clip co-directed by Charlotte and Kevan Funk, which features spoken word from poet, musician, and fellow Canadian artist Mustafa showcasing Texan bull riders’ changing faces and identities. Charlotte’s recent single ‘Keep Moving’ was featured as the face of Spotify’s inaugural EQUAL campaign playlist and is another immensely moving and deeply personal clip with the visual further telling the story of ALPHA and boldly commencing Charlotte’s new era.
ALPHA has amassed Charlotte an even larger dedicated fanbase and has achieved over 40+M streams since its release. Charlotte made waves in the industry from her 2016 release of her debut EP CDW (which has garnered more than 100M streams in total) and through her work with friends and collaborators BADBADNOTGOOD, Daniel Caesar, and Kaytranada. Charlotte returned in 2018 with the poignant EP Stone Woman. She has garnered 1.8+M Monthly Spotify Listeners and over 150+M streams, truly making a name for herself.
