It is March 23rd 2014 which means it is time to announce the next 'Song of the Week'.
The [very] talented young woman earning Basement Entertainment's one hundredth 'Song of the Week' spot with her latest single, I Will Be Ok, is someone that I have been following since mid 2011. And, fast forward nearly three years and Charlotte Eriksson still continues to blow me away with everything she does.
Charlotte Eriksson, who goes by The Glass Child, definitely has one incredible story behind her. On her Facebook page she shares, "The story of The Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is one of those you usually only see in movies. Only eighteen years old she left everything she had and knew, family and friends, in Sweden and moved to London, United Kingdom to dedicate her life to her music and art.".
Thus far, Charlotte has gone on to release not one, but four EPs, as well as a long-awaited full length album, titled I'd Like To Remain A Mystery, which was officially released to iTunes on February 25th 2013. On top of that, her single, I Will Lead You Home, found on I'd Like To Remain A Mystery, even hit number two on the iTunes chart in her hometown of Sweden.
Beyond her music, in April of 2013, Charlotte released her first novel, titled Empty Roads And Broken Bottles; In Search For The Great Perhaps. The novel tells her [raw] story about her desire to chase her dream of music. The novel even sold out after [just] three short days of pre-orders.
Most recently Charlotte, under the name of The Glass Child, released her latest EP, titled Love Always, Your Tragedy. Like always, she packed the EP with five songs that will have you searching the internet for more. And, thankfully, there are plenty more songs available thanks to her previous releases.
So, if you honestly have not ran across The Glass Child and Charlotte Eriksson just yet, please check out her music right away. Her story itself is inspiring, but her music will seriously leave you at a loss for words. And, her latest single, I Will Be Ok, is earning this week's 'Song of the Week' spot because of [just] that.
"I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem. This is my story. It's been a beautiful fight."
All of Charlotte's previous releases can be found on various websites on the internet, including her official website and, of course, iTunes. Plus, she has an official Youtube Channel filled with unbelievable cover songs, and her original tunes, including this week's 'Song of the Week', I Will Be Ok, which can be seen here:
See you next Sunday when we post which artist or band will be taking spot number one hundred and one on our 'Song of the Week' list. In the meantime, you will certainly want to make sure you check out Charlotte Eriksson and The Glass Child.
