‘I tremble with nostalgia when Jen Charlton sings one of her wonderful songs’ (Edd Donovan)
Canadian singer-songwriter Jen Charlton writes songs you can take with you. Combining a heady mix of classical sensibilities, folk and pop – there is an authenticity to her work which cannot be denied.

After John Lennon left the Beatles he wanted a more immediate, instantaneous way to produce songs and get them heard. I know how he felt! I love perfectly produced songs – but it tends to take a long time.
So instead of waiting ages for the ultimate version of every song – I decided to put out a ‘song of the month’ for the whole of 2017. Just me – at the piano.
The recordings are full of cracks and whistles – but I kind of like them… Lo-fi as it is – I think they have charm.
Listen to all these songs with headphones!!
