Just giving

Over the past few months, I have written various songs because I had seen, heard, read or otherwise experienced something that affected me emotionally. So, with my Dad's help, I approached various organisations: Bradford OxJam, Young Minds and Scope.

“True to form the first act tonight proves to be the most interesting. Charlie Leavy makes a big impact with just her voice and an acoustic guitar, sounding more California than her native Hook Norton. Relentlessly upbeat, one great song follows another, catchy tunes with straightforward yet personal lyrics like the poignant ‘Tongue Tied’. Only seventeen, she writes and performs with frank simplicity that comes as a breath of vitalising air, her take on Pixie Lott’s ‘Mama Do’ trouncing the original.”

Chartburst Unsigned Track Focus: Charlie Leavy | The Way Life Is

Artist: Charlie Leavy
Track: The Way Life Is


‘The Way Life Is’ is a brilliantly moving piece created by the socially aware and intellectually charged teenager Charlie Leavy.

Treading the boards laid down by the likes of Ed Sheeran, Charlie showcases her raw thoughts on life – of how actions lead to consequence and how socially we focus on our own small worlds instead of the bigger picture”…If you wake up every day and you’ve already closed your mind…stop pretending everything is fine” words that echo true to many both young and old.

I love Charlie’s clever pop at both the media and her peers in the line “…We should care about the things people need instead of who’s best dressed and having sex” subjects that are usually hot topics among friends and teen magazines. If ever teenagers were in need of a jolt to get them thinking about life, they need only to listen to the lyrics of this talented up and coming female.

‘The Way Life Is’ shows Charlie’s excellent writing ability in addition to her voice and guitar skills – which are impressively self taught.
With this much talent just waiting to be unleashed onto the world Charlie Leavy is certainly one to keep your eye on.
