Charlie PS borrows elements of strong vocals and energetic riffs and uses them to create her own blended sound rooted in modern-rock.
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 legends of the 20th century such as Stevie Nicks and Ann Wilson, Charlie borrows elements of strong vocals and energetic riffs and uses them to create her own blended sound rooted in modern-rock.
Her single, “Revival” (2023), oozes with crunchy, blues-rock guitar riffs and fiercely melodic gang vocals. “This song is a story of personal restoration,” explains Charlie. “After facing my own trials and tribulations during the pandemic, it’s me laughing in the face of adversity with a new-found confidence.” “Revival” is the first of three singles to be released this year in advance of a five song EP in November.
The catalyst in Charlie’s sonic direction is her single, “Ghost of You”, 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).
