Charlotte Carpenter “Follow You Down” – Listen

Charlotte Carpenter released her new single a couple of weeks back on Babywoman Records (her own label); it’s an infectious blend of folk, rock and a pinch of pop.   There’s a bitter sweetness in its inspiration  though as Charlotte explains “‘Follow You Down’ is nothing like I’ve ever written; it breaks my heart and uplifts me at the same time.  It’s written for my Nan and Grandad, whose remarkable commitment to each other over the last year will stay with me for the rest of my life. They took every step together but he couldn’t take her last alongside her. She was more than a Grandmother figure, and losing her uncovered a new layer to my songwriting. I wanted to embody how much light she brought into my life.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
