I’ve been bored with too many emo-ish singer songwriters and intended to skip the whole scene, but a 17 year old phenom named Charlie Leavy was way, way too talented to ignore.
Charlie Leavy – The Way Life is
Man, did I freak out when I found out that this stunning talent was only 17 years old when she wrote and recorded this. Man, the voice, the songwriting, the music, it’s all so mature, so age-weathered, so, so . . . so damn perfect.
It might seem trite to hear a 17 year old sing “this is the way life is” over a light blues beat, but nothing here seems forced. There’s a wisdom to her, a seeing well beyond her years. Best of all, I could listen to Charlie sing for hours and hours. Her tone reaches all the right place with a deep honesty that belays her years. And what a damn catchy melody. Wow.
Again, if Ripple Music put out singer-songwriter stuff, she’d be signed today, or rather, yesterday. Can’t wait to see where she goes with her music next.
