Charli White is an upcoming singer/songwriter currently based in Shanghai. Possessing an undeniable enigmatic darkness and sensibility, Charli’s past work has caught the attention of BBC Manchester, who hailed her ‘a wonderful voice’. With a relentless curiosity and determination that has led her to command some of Manchester’s most prestigious stages such as the much-lauded Gorilla and SoundControl, and with the release of her debut single '𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐲' in early July 2018, it is clear that Charli's work is a far cry from the softness and submissiveness that is all too often associated with female singer/songwriters. It is hard to believe such a huge force hails from such a small town.
In 2018, Charli was chosen out of hundreds of applicants to be a part of the Top 6's of Firestone's Road to the Main Stage Competition, endorsed by BBC Radio 1's Abbie McCarthy. August 2019, Charli was selected to play the Jessica Foxley Unsigned Stage at the Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival. This performance saw her nominated for the Jules Fothergill Young Blues Artist of the Year. She continues to pull together both the mainstream and blues communities with music that seems to transcend genre; instead, living in its own unique space.

"𝐒𝐚𝐧𝐜𝐭𝐮𝐚𝐫𝐲' is a wonderful demonstration of White's more expansive sound, a beautifully emotive rock ballad which finds that perfect sweet spot between sweepingly anthemic and intimate confessional."

"Charli is gorgeous to the bone. She has an ability to brighten anyone’s day and put compulsory smiles on faces. If her pen continues to be as prolific as it has been I think we are looking forward to the birth of some classic tunes. It is coming as sure as night follows day.” – Garry White, Promoter, Event Organiser, Contemporary Music Correspondent MEN Media Group.
