Charlotte Sass

If elegance is a quality that too often eludes us in today’s culture, you will experience it when you meet or listen to Charlotte Sass.

Charlotte exudes such a natural grace and beauty of style that you cannot help but notice it in her person, her lyrics, her voice, and her music. She vulnerably writes about the depths and complexities of love and loss while still exposing a sharp wit and a contagious joy for life - all of which translate into her melodies, instrumentations, and performances. Stylistically, Charlotte has been compared to the likes of Joni Mitchell & Natalie Merchant (voice and emotion) and Norah Jones & Tori Amos (piano and musicianship), but her voice is her own and worthy of recognition.

Spend any time around Charlotte, and you will hear how quickly she moves from a hearty bout of laughter among friends to an intimate musical conversation between vocals and piano, guitar, or violin. Her warmth reaches out from the music and gently stirs one to internal ponderings and exploration. One listener writes: “Time and again, I’ve felt like a personal friend leaning in with my ear ready. In a room filled with hundreds of people, I’ve so often felt like her words were ones I needed to hear.”

Her first album, “Woman at the Well,” was an outpouring of her difficult but hallowed journey through grief over the sudden loss of her young husband. The music is simultaneously haunting and comforting. It is also arrestingly transparent both in lyrics and performance.
Her second album is a step beyond. Her songwriting continues to grow as does her depth and breadth of musicality. You can tell she is a degreed musician (Masters from Northwestern University), but she’s not afraid of simplicity. Charlotte’s music has its mature provenance in acoustic sounds with strong undertones of Jazz amid subtle notes of Pop & Folk.

Charlotte is clear on her vision to simply “sing her heart”. “We are human beings made for exploration of inner and outer depths, still in need of healing and grace, and we learn from each other.” If elegance is a standard of tastefulness, Charlotte is top shelf.
