The Experimental-Tinged Folk Of Chloe Charles

Chloe Charles, 25, is not typical.

A black singer/songwriter who goes against the obvious, this Canadian musician got me hooked on her music.

I’m not a big fan of Erykah Badu or Bjork, but she takes both of the singers, add some sparks of post-77 John Martyn, and manage to turn me on with her new EP – Little Green Bud.

The songwriting is surprising in its quality, a nice merge of the classic singer/songwriter thing, meets a desire for experimentation,  but the arrangements are the name of the game in this case. Classic guitar, violins, cellos – all make this beautiful wrap to Chloe’s beautiful voice and songs. The bio sheet mentioned that she’s the step daughter of Lennon’s first wife Cynthia, but with her music – I don’t believe any additional facts are required. She certainly got me surprised, and I’ll be eagerly waiting for a full album. And she’s beautiful.
