It’s in music that Charlotte Lawrence found her peace and
a place where to express her creative nature. A native Angeleno, the 19 years old rising singer and songwriter recently unveiled her Ep Navy Blue and is now on a worldwide tour.

MI Who is Charlotte Lawrence?
CL That is something I am learning a little about everyday. It seems like in these times everyone expects everyone to know who they are before they turn 20 years old. I am going to take my time and explore and see what I find. I love music. I don’t love makeup. I love jeans with a t-shirt. I don’t love pretending to be something I’m not. I love life and I try to enjoy it everyday. I love performing. I love being on tour. I love having fun.
MI I know you are on a worldwide tour. How has it gone so far?
CL There is nothing like being on tour. Twists and turns and all kinds of emotions. I love seeing what is around the next corner. Every night I meet so many cool people and play in a different venue with a different energy. I love it. It is hard to describe the feeling of being on stage. The Navy Blue Tour has been really special for me, it just feels like a whole new adventure. I love the music I have been working on lately and I love my team.
Of course I still have a lot to learn and every night that I am on stage I have the possibility of learning something new. That is something amazing about being on tour. You feel totally alive.
MI You are an original Angeleno. How was growing up in the City of Angels?
CL Los Angeles is an amazing city. It can love you or leave you. So you have to keep it cool. You grow up fast here, but I can’t think of any other place I would rather be from. I think people have an idea of LA that they created through cine- ma imagery or maybe what they experienced on vacation here. It’s hard to really understand Los Angeles if you did not grow up here. Its such a strange city. In my song God Must Be Doing Cocaine I wrote “All of the zombies walking around LA making the city our stage”. I think this really applies to LA.
