From her website:
The story of The Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is one of those you usually see on movies. Only 18 years old she took off to London all on her own, leaving everything she had to dedicate her life to her music and art. Landed in the UK, she spent two years traveling, wandering and learning – a worn out bag and a guitar as her only traveling companions, friends’ couches were her home. Her journey actually became a tour that brought Charlotte to play all over the UK, connecting with fans and followers through her raw voice and resulted in an exploding online-buzz. With nothing but hard work and determination she’s created a community of incredibly dedicated fans with 19,000 followers on twitter and her social networking sites.
With her own label, Broken Glass Records, Charlotte produced and released 3 critically acclaimed EPs, and in just a few days, the single ’I Will Lead You Home’ – released for the Swedish cancer-organization ’Ung Cancer’ – reached #2 on the Swedish iTunes chart and has now been played over 500,000 times on YouTube. With this exposure, Charlotte was named Breakthrough Indie Artist of the Year by Lemonade Magazine and has been played on major radios such as BBC6, Sveriges Radio (Sweden) and 3FM (Netherlands).
Now, after a new journey of self-discovery and 3 singles off the album, The Glass Child is releasing her highly anticipated full-length debut ‘I’d like to remain a mystery’: the first single, Stay, will be released on February 12th followed by the album February 26th. After letting her fans be a part of her journey through her writings, journaling, prose and poetry on her blog, she’s also self-publishing her first book later this spring called “Empty Roads and Broken Bottles”, as a follow-up to the album. An autobiographic story about her journey on the road, building her life on art and what it means to love and lose and never give up.
”I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem. This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is.”
