Album Notes
’You do feel that an artist with all this talent must get a break soon…’ James Clark, Wasted, www.americana-uk.com

"The first time I heard Jen sing was at an open mic, and I realized immediately that she was extremely gifted. She sang in this clear, soaring soprano voice, and even all the jaded New Yorkers stopped talking to listen to her.’ - Rebecca Hall, www.rebeccaandken.com

’One of the best new things I’ve heard in a good while.’ Jeff Cotton on Wasted (Comes with a Smile, www.comeswithasmile.com )

‘Charlton has a voice that could sing a shopping list and make it worthwhile. At the same time, you get the feeling that music for her is a matter of life and death.’ As part of what is now clearly a tradition of great Canadian singer/songwriters, she was born in a small town in Ontario, but has been paying her dues in London. Having recorded her third album ‘Wasted’, Charlton is an original musical voice.

She is a difficult artist to classify. Charlton’s roots are two-fold: classical music and Anglo-American folk; but infused with her own left-field sensibilities and a talent for writing a tune. In short - she’s got it. Charlton has lived all over, from Montreal, to New York, to Spain, and followers of her story so far will know her previous incarnation in the band The Lovers, a very well received folk/rock group. Collaborating with a host of musicians, Charlton teamed up with producer Sean Read (who has collaborated with Graham Coxon, Edwin Collins and Beth Orton) for the album. Wasted was released in 2006 - distributed in the UK & Ireland by Proper Music.

In recent months her music has taken a slightly different turn, becoming much more piano-based and less influenced by Americana. Working with an unusual line-up, from violin, to accordion – to percussion, and for the first time writing songs in French (her second language), she is showing a different side to her musical universe. She is currently working on a new album.
