After performing at T in the Park for the first time, AMBY spoke with Dundee singer-songwriter Charlotte Brimner, also known as Be Charlotte. Enjoy our interview as we discuss her T in the Park debut, following dreams, and experimental vibes.
AMBY: So that was your first time playing at T in the Park, how was it for you?
Be Charlotte: Surreal! I still can’t even believe it happened. It was more than I could’ve ever hoped for. I genuinely had no idea what to expect but to see so many smiling faces singing along in the crowd was the best feeling ever.
AMBY: What inspired the name change?
Be Charlotte: The name change was something I’d been thinking about for a quite a while and I wanted something I felt represented me both personally and musically. A life motto I like to live by is ‘Be Yourself’ so basically I see it as a little reminder to always be who you wanna be and follow your dreams.
AMBY: How would you describe your sound to those unfamiliar?
Be Charlotte: Tricky one…… I’d say there’s a lil bit of pop/hip-hop/experimental vibes going on.
AMBY: Were there any favourite acts you managed to catch over the weekend whilst at T?
Be Charlotte: YES!! Our Future Glory, Other Humans, Hector Bizerk, Crash Club, Sam Smith, Paloma Faith…. to name a few!
AMBY: What are your thoughts on the new location?
Be Charlotte: Loved it! Felt a lot more spaced out than Balado to me.
AMBY: Where do you gather inspiration for your music?
Be Charlotte: I like to take inspiration from the people, places, and situations around me.
AMBY: What’s next for you?
Be Charlotte: Lots of writing and gigging, which I cant waaait for!
AMBY: Finally, what’s your guilty pleasure song?
Be Charlotte: Hmmm…at the moment it would have to be Cheerleader by Omi purely because I know it irritates a lot of people but I just cant help and dance to it…
Thank you Be Charlotte, for giving us your answers!
