ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Poignant and poetic, Charlotte Kendrick is an artist who creates an irresistibly intimate world with her songs. Her music is tenderly performed Americana folk rock reminiscent of Lucy Kaplansky or Nanci Griffith. With a refreshingly understated voice, she sings in the tradition of folk singers to whom the song matters most.

Though she had played music all her life, Charlotte didn’t try her hand at songwriting until her early twenties, when she spent two years in West Africa with the Peace Corps. With no electricity at her disposal, her main source of entertainment became playing guitar and writing songs.

Upon returning to New York, Charlotte started from scratch; hitting open mic nights and playing every venue possible. During that period, she met producer and fellow-musician, Dan Rowe and they set to work on her full-length debut album, I Get Stupid. Just a few weeks before the release of I Get Stupid, Dan accompanied Charlotte on bass at the Village Underground, and they have been on stage together ever since. They are now playing such notable venues as Club Passim (Cambridge, MA), the Hotel Café (Los Angeles, CA), World Café Live (Philadelphia, PA), the Bluebird Theater (Denver, CO), and The Living Room (NYC), as well as sharing the stage with the likes of Steve Forbert, Lucy Kaplansky and The Avett Brothers.

Charlotte’s 2007 release, North of New York, is music with a message. From the light and propulsive bluegrass feel of “Off The Tracks,” telling of a heartbroken reckless spree, to “Let Go,” a loving, restful plea to her loved one to drop the demands of the world outside, she reminds us to give thanks, love the life we live now, and take the night off every once in a while. When asked about her goals, she says, “To look back and say I did what I was meant to do - sing songs that mean something to someone. Consider it done, Charlotte.

Collected Sounds

Love it
These songs have attached themselves to me and won’t let go.

They have a sweet sense to them especially on "Thank You"...

Some of the songs have a male vocal harmony part which is a lovely addition. The two sound great together.

There is something so intimate about the sound, production wise that makes it feel like she's right here singing right to me. Very nice.

Thanks for Thank YOu
I love Thank You, I bought it for my boy friend of three years. I always steal his food, so "Like ordering an omelet so I can have a bite and still eat my waffles too" was perfect. Thanks for helping me remind him how much I love him!

Excellent CD, Charlotte has a folk soul as pure as any artist I've heard. 'Best of Me', 'Too Nice', and the truly magical 'Drag You Down' are my favorites, but since I've heard them on live at the Roger Smith, 'In Time' and powerful 'Laces' have my attention now. The guitar tone in Laces is reminiscient of the Connells. Overall the lyrics are genuine and meaningful, and her voice is beautiful.

Charlotte's songs are so genuine
Listening to Charolotte is such a pleasure! You can feel the fresh and wholesomeness of her voice and seeing her in person with Dan makes you feel like you are seeing a friend again. I've enjoyed a wide variety of music over the years, but there is something about Charlotte and Dan that makes me feel like thei music really IS from the heart. This new CD shows how Charlotte can change the inflection by simply adding small percussion and other backgrounds, like a beustiful frame around a beautifule painting. Tasteful and ajoy to listen to.!

Eveb Better than "I Get Stupid"
I loved, "I get Stupid", but this one is even better. Her voice is crystal clear and pure and the emotion is each song wll take you right along with her. When is the next CD coming out? I can't wait.
