As promised, I’ve started to film some stuff to show you what the musical side of my life is like 😀 I’m ridiculously awkward when filming myself talking but hey ho, hopefully I will become more natural as I do it more and more 🙂
2 Days. 8 Venues. 8 Gigs. 4 hrs of live acoustic music in a variety of cafes, pubs, coffee shops & a theatre foyer!
Amazing weekend. Thoroughly enjoyable

Episode 235 – Charlie Leavy
I am honoured to introduce you to today’s guest, Charlotte “Charlie” Leavy! She is a singer/songwriter from the UK, and has accomplished more in her young life than most people do in their whole career.
Charlie has a multitude of original songs, and is a tireless performer. It is an incredible balance when you factor in her school work.
She got her start by recording one take acoustic performances in her bedroom. She has since moved things into the studio, and her brand new EP is available now! It’s called “The Best Damn Ride”. Two songs from it are featured with this episode.
Special thanks to my good friend Tess Jones (www.tessofthecircle.com) for pointing me in Charlie’s direction. I am truly a fan of her work, and I hope she joins me again to keep me posted on her career.

Reviewer: Dale Kattack
“Charlie Leavy, from Hook Norton via Leeds, falls neatly into the confessional-girl-with-guitar bracket, displaying the best and worst of that particular niche. Occasionally she slips into melisma and wailing over ragged acoustic strumming, but when she hits the right tone, as on `Patchworks’, she shows she’s got something worth investigating, a sweet, almost folky voice that she pushes just to its limits and no further, and a strong sense of melody. We’d like to hear more of her natural Yorkshire accent in her singing but with a more polished sound on her recent `The Best Damn Ride’, there’s undoubtedly better things ahead for her than opening a four-band bill.”
