Wise beyond her teenage years, she wanted to create something that really meant something. In her own beautiful words - ”I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem." With not much more than a vague dream, high hopes, and a guitar slung over her shoulder, at 18, she left behind everything she knew in her native born country of Sweden - friends, family, and security, in search of herself and her purpose.
After a year in London, wandering, growing, and playing anywhere she could (sometimes crashing in the home's of her fans), she launched her first album, funded entirely from a pledge campaign. Her fans and supporters raised the needed money in only four hours.
On the show is singer, songwriter and author, Charlotte Eriksson, better known as The Glass Child. Charlotte on her life's journey - "This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is”.
It's been about four years since Charlotte made the bold, decisive move to step away from mediocrity and status quo expectations. Since then, she's started her own record label (Broken Glass Records), released 5 EPs and her critically acclaimed debut full-length, I'd Like to Remain a Mystery, had her single, I Will Lead You Home, reach #2 on the Swedish iTunes-chart, was named Breakthrough Indie Artist Of The Year by Lemonade Magazine, and has independently published her first book, Empty Road and Broken Bottles.
