Vinny Sheridan Winter Song is a Haunting song, to me it embodies everything that makes Charlotte's music so Brilliant. Spontanious poetry born out of an existence of solitude, pain and a deep sadness that is almost guaranteed to strike a pain in your own heart given the depth of feeling in each word sung. Technically perfect because it is all driven from a heart of Pure Gold. Favorite track: Winter Song.

Alex Blair Have yourself a hygge winter, find a big chair in front of a roaring fire. Find yourself a bigger blanket. Settle yourself in with a mug of mulled wine or hot chocolate (marshmallows optional but recommended). Maybe some delicious gingerbread, still warm from the oven. Then press play on this lovely little EP from Charlotte. Some gorgeous Christmas songs, a couple of winter tales and of course Charlottes usual little vocal twists. Simply beautiful.

Aileen Rae This is perfect for days alone with steaming mugs of coffee, warm blankets and frost on the windowpanes outside. Charlotte's voice has this beautiful fragility and heartbreaking honesty. A gorgeous little collection of Christmas songs that feels both homely and a bit bittersweet. Favorite track: Where Are You Christmas.

about

Thank you so so much to the moon and back for downloading my little christmas gift to you. I was brainstorming ideas of how I could show you how thankful and grateful I am for the beautiful support you’ve given me this year, and after countless nights and mostly weird ideas I decided to stick to what I love the most - music. I’ve worked on this little christmas-EP by myself in my cozy little room with mulled wine and tons of candles and I really hope you will like it!

I can’t describe how much it means to do this journey with all of you and I don’t think you understand how beautiful it is that we’ve created this family, this community, by just pure music and passion.
Here’s to another year of dreams and goals, of fighting and striving, of learning and growing and of love and music.
I’ll never take you or any of this for granted.
Thank you for existing, exactly as you are <3

The Glass Child Sweden

Im an organized mess.I believe in the future,for Ive seen yesterday and Im still alive.When I was 18 I left everything I knew and moved all on my own to London to create the life I wanted to live & find the person I wanted to be. I learned how to build my home in my music and my words. When I sing or write, I'm not scared anymore. I believe in writing your own story,and that's what Im doing here. ... more

Track Name: Winter In Her Mind
The women in the house next door
is one I’ll always love for sure
She smiles and she says hi and she is always very kind

She drinks her coffee on her porch
and waves as I go off each mornin’
Her silver hair is always in a knot and lipstick’s on

Her husband built a house to show
he would take care of her for sure
And then they got their kids and she had all that she could dream

But her kids they all grew up too soon
Her husband past away last June
and now the kitchen’s quiet every noon

So now she’s waking up alone
She drinks her coffee on her own
The radio keeps humming the same song

But she’s holding on to colder days
Soon December’s here and then her family will all be on their ways
And they’ll say ”mom, It’s good to be home”

CHORUS
Home at Christmas time
It will all be fine, it will all be fine
It’s always winter in her mind
When the house is filled and the laughter spreads
And there is kindness all around
It will all be fine, it will all be fine
at Christmas time

VERSE
The 24th they all arrive in time
With cheer and gifts and kindness vows
They hug her and make sure that there is food enough for all

The house is filled with new perfumes
Her son and future wife and then her daughter singing songs
Two cousins and their brother’s son
And they brought wine and ginger beer
Exactly like they did last year
The kids are shaking gifts laid underneath the Christmas tree

She takes a breath and breaths it in
Her heart is full of love within
They hold her hands and kiss her cheek
And they say ”mom, it’s good to be home”

CHORUS
Home at Christmas time
It will all be fine, it will all be fine
It’s always winter in her mind
When the house is filled and the laughter spreads
And there is kindness all around
It will all be fine, it will all be fine
at Christmas time

VERSE
But the days are always gone too soon
The 26th they leave the rooms
They hug and say goodbye
And leave her lonelier than time

She cleans the house and throws the tree
Holds on to the memory
Of love and people in her mind
It’s always winter in her mind

Winter in her mind
It will all be fine, it will all be fine
At Christmas time
