About CHAR

Victoria, Canada

One of the very first musical moments that Char can recall is falling asleep to her mother singing "Que Sera Sera" every night. Her soothing voice whisked Char into another world, all while wondering what life had in store for her in the future. At the ripe age of 6, singing along with greats such as Johnny Cash, George Jones, and Willie Nelson while travelling the world with her parents, Char got a dose of diversity at a very young age. Although she’s grown to love the music she was once subjected to listen to, her walkman was once her solace. Hypnotic, melodic, shoe-gaze, alternative styles of music have always been her escape from the norm... After high school in 2001, Char enrolled the jazz program of Applied Arts at Mohawk College. Jazz opened her eyes and ears to playing "in the box" and then trying to get out of it. Char continued to pursue her love affair with music; after many paths she could have chose from(like singing on cruise ships or teaching english abroad), the West called to her. Knowing just two friends from school, Char took a chance, packed two suitcases, and made the over 3000km trip to Victoria, BC. Going through various blues, experimental rock, and pop bands for the next 3 years, Char had her own songs she worked on the side and released a solo cd titled "Blame It On The Moon" in 2007; a mix of her shoe-gaze and jazz influences. In September of 2008, Char successfully toured Canada as a solo artist and while doing so, she discovered that looping her vocals and various instruments live at shows helped her create a full and unique sound. A sound that she is now perfecting by performing shows throughout Canada and consistently writing on a full-time basis. Char will be working with Neil Osborne (54-40) in the near future to produce her next album and to capture her best performances in the studio.
