Charlie Dore?s songs have been recorded by the good and the great including George Harrison, Tina Turner, Celine Dion, Jimmy Nail and Ricky Ross, but her live shows reveal that actually she keeps the best songs for herself.
As one of the UK?s most respected songwriters her own albums, described as ?eclectic contemporary folk with crunchy lyrics? continue to win awards both sides of the Atlantic, most recently Female Vocalist Of The Year (FATEA, 2020) and Best Lyrics (Like Animals ,US Indie Acoustic, 2021).
Charlie has also played major festivals including Glastonbury, Celtic Connections, Cropredy, Shrewsbury Folk and Ventnor as well as appearing at some of the UK?s most prestigious venues including Kings Place and Liverpool Philharmonic.
Recent sessions for Mark Radcliffe (BBC Radio 2) and Ricky Ross (BBC Radio Scotland) as well as an inclusion on Ken Bruce?s final BBC show, prove Charlie?s relevance and ability to capture the imagination of increasing and new audiences.
For her 10th and most recent album Like Animals she turns away from the expansive science and space metaphors of 2017?s Dark Matter to focus on the internal landscape of the human brain and just what makes us tick. Sewn-through with Dore?s trademark dark wit, lyricism, and distinctive melodic voice, Like Animals explores some of our most basic instincts and how we?re often hi-jacked by our emotional responses.
