Agent Maria Kohnen
Since moving to Manchester in late 20l6 she has made appearances at Sound Control and the much-lauded Gorilla. 2017 saw her make her first festival appearances with performances at Dot to Dot (Sundara Karma, Amber Run, The Growlers) and Samphire Festival (The Correspondents, Ardyn), and May 2018 saw her play her first gigs outside of the UK, playing multiple dates around the Netherlands.
Her performances, characterised by her impressive vocal range and emotionally driven guitar, create a live solo set that provides enough power to keep up with any band she performs alongside. Far from the softness and submissiveness that is all too often associated with female singer/songwriters, Charli has a peerless voice that demands to be heard. It is hard to believe such a huge force hails from such a small town.
“Charli is gorgeous to the bone. She has an ability to brighten anyone’s day and put compulsory smiles on faces. If her pen continues to be as prolific as it has been I think we are looking forward to the birth of some classic tunes. It is coming as sure as night follows day.” – Garry White, Promoter, Event Organiser, Contemporary Music Correspondent MEN Media Group.
“A wonderful voice.” — Becky Want, presenter, BBC Radio Manchester.
