British-born singer songwriter Charleesa opens the heart and mind through mellifluous melodies and intimate lyrics that she delivers with the passionate sincerity of a crusader, and the sensitivity of a healer. She desires to inspire people with her current repertoire which is written with an optimistic outlook; these songs are as elevating as they are evocative.
‘We humans, are different yet all from the same source. We feel, we dream and we want to be happy.’
Composing in the moment using her voice as her instrument, Charleesa sings to express thought, feeling & observation. Songs flow from her and she’s in a peaceful yet powerful place, where lyrics both lead and follow the melody she feels; words & sound - created as one. She records her sound with a Boss BR600 & documents lyrics. Directing & co-creating audio elements in studios with musicians & producers, her book of images visually depicts how the music will convey the essence of her theme.
A musical family history and her own passion for singing, writing lyrics & performance meant that she discovered her vocal abilities at a young age. Singing was part of home-life and she was raised on music, her beloved Mother was her greatest supporter always boosting her confidence to take to the stage whenever the opportunity arose. She formed an all girl band at school with friends and entertained classmates with a duet of her first poetic lyrical melody at aged 14. Continuing to sing at various venues, she started making captivating songs with meaningful messages, embracing an abundance of creative freedom she experienced from her lifestyle and surroundings. Singing acapella, she sent rooms into a level of silence which at first was both astounding and intimidating to her but the positive reactions she received encouraged her to introduce her original material, enchanting the audience with her voice and distinct personality.
Charleesa’s eclectic influences range from pop divas such as Madonna, Kylie, Kate Bush & Nina Simone to iconic acts such as Elvis, The Beatles & Pink Floyd. Some of her favourite fellow artists include Aurora, Fia, Florence Welch, Jaime Woon, DUB FX, Nihils, Parov Stela, Lamb, & Faithless; while soul, funk & motown, mantra’s & ambient spiritual music are all creatively formative genres.
