Biography

This unique lady from Rotterdam represents a wonderful set of songs reflecting her vision on life and love. Charlie Dee is a songwriter with a story and a remarkable and characteristic voice.

The 2006 release of her debut-album "Where do girls come from" immediately brought on a wave of interviews and raving reviews comparing her to big names like Joni Mitchell, Rickie Lee Jones and Carol King. Using her sharp lyrics Charlie painted a melancholic, optimistic and honest picture on a warm, personal and musically wide-ranging album. Together with Martijn van Agt (guitars), Chris Grem (bass), Johan Hendrikse (Keys) and Joeri Rook(drums) she conquered many a stage including the legendary Paradiso (Amsterdam), Lowlands festival and (supporting LIVE) Ahoy (Rotterdam). On top of it all she was rewarded with the Essent Award 2006.
No reason though to sit back and relax. Hardly 18 months passed since her first album and well, there it is! The eagerly anticipated follow-up "Love Your Life" is a surprisingly powerful album.
