Vancouver-based Charlie PS has a sound that can be described as a sonic melting pot. Inspired by a wide variety of rock and blues from legends of the 20th century such as Stevie Nicks and Ann Wilson, to modern rock artists that include Grace Potter and ZZ Ward, Charlie borrows elements of strong vocals and energetic riffs and uses them to create her own blended sound rooted in modern-rock.
Her latest single and title track off her upcoming EP “Even If It Kills Me” (August 2023) takes its dynamic chorus, layered with an ensemble of vocals and live horns and its modern rock inspired instrumentation and calls out to the risk takers and the secretly insecure, reminding them that sometimes it’s okay to just be you. “Even If It Kills Me” is the second of three singles to be released this year in advance of a five song EP in November and follows “Revival”(May 2023) a story of personal restoration, oozing with crunchy, blues-rock guitar riffs and fiercely melodic gang vocals.
The catalyst in Charlie’s sonic direction is her single, “Ghost of You” (2021), which combines flavors of alternative and southern rock, creating a backdrop for ‘western-esque’ storytelling and was featured on the Spotify Editorial Playlist ‘Morning Blues’, BBC Radio and CBC’s ‘Rock Canada’ Playlist.
Charlie’s debut EP, Little Miss Dysfunctional (2018), included the title track which went on to be nominated and win ‘Best Pop Song’ and was also nominated for ‘Best Music Video’, while Charlie herself was nominated as ‘Artist of the Year’ at the Kootenay Music Awards (2019). She also placed in the Top-100 in CBC’s Searchlight competition (2019) and won a spot at the local Surrey Fusion Festival (2019).
