At only 21 years old, Charlotte Cardin has already shown promise of being one of 2017’s breakout songstresses. Her debut single, the minimal electro-jazz ballad “Big Boy” garnered instant online buzz. Since then, the young singer’s career has been a series of milestones. Her long-awaited debut EP was released July 2016 and instantly jumped to number one on iTunes Canada. The success of the EP is being fueled by a 60-date Canadian tour which has so far included stops at the CBC Music festival, Osheaga, and le Festival d’été de Québec (the latter of which saw her opening up for Sting and Peter Gabriel). By road-testing her material with her tight-knit three piece band, Charlotte seems to have hit a sweet spot between the minimalism in the songs’ arrangements and the larger-than-life quality of her live show.
