Prolific singer/songwriter Charlotte Lawrence crafts an emotive playlist to cosy up to after the release of her latest deep-end track 'God Must Be Doing Cocaine'.
Since transcending onto the scene a few years ago, Charlotte Lawrence has cemented herself as one of the most honest, sharp and talented singer/songwriters who have come through the gates.
After garnering widespread critical acclaim and millions of worldwide streams for breakthrough hits ‘Just The Same’ and ‘Sleep Talking’ off her 2018 debut EP ‘YOUNG’, Lawrence is boldly back with a new reflecting message to the masses. A simplistic yet cutting track focuses on Charlotte’s powerhouse vocals as she grabs you by hand to take you on the whatever journey Charlotte wishes.
‘God Must Be Doing Cocaine’ follows Lawrence’s recent release of the addictive ‘Navy Blue’, and only further proves that Lawrence will be no musical jack-in-the-box for anyone. In the summer of 2019, Lawrence made her major-label debut with ‘Why Do You Love Me‘, which arrived alongside a stunning Alasdair McLellan directed music video.
With the signature vocals that take the air out of you and lyricism that knocks the air back into you, we can’t wait to see what this creative powerhouse does next as she is only getting started.
