Be Charlotte is an acclaimed singer/songwriter from Dundee who has just signed for Columbia/Sony Music and to have that achievement at such a young age is incredible! I wanted to write an article on her because I think she is an amazing musician who is the face of music in Dundee for the next generation.
Be Charlotte, born Charlotte Brimmer was brought up in Kellas in Angus. She attended Morgan Academy and always had a dream of performing in front of crowds at music festivals and in 2012, she was featured in the Evening Telegraph after impressing judges at the Live and Unsigned music competition at just aged 14.
Charlotte began using a stage name Be Charlotte and in 2016 had been named the best electronic act at the Scottish Alternative Music Awards which were held in Glasgow.
In 2017, she made her dream of performing in front of big crowds come true when she performed at the Carnival Fifty Six festival which took place at Camperdown Park in August last year.
Recently, Be Charlotte has signed for a new record deal with Columbia/Sony Music and is now on the path to go even larger
Be Charlotte will be one of the headline acts at the 3D Festival which begins tomorrow ahead of the opening of the V&A on September 15.
What Be Charlotte has shown is that dreams can come true if you keep working hard at it! Charlotte is an incredible young up and coming artist – and who knows what incredible things the future holds – one thing is certain, her career in the music industry is only going to grow higher!
I look forward to hearing her at the 3D Festival tomorrow! All the best Be Charlotte!
