Dundee’s Charlotte Brimner has come a long way since her early acoustic compositions, and is now making waves on both sides of the Atlantic. In the spring she took part in SXSW Interactive, demonstrating a new instrument she has developed with Cambridge scientist Kate Stone, before heading off to LA to begin work on writing music for films.
Although not yet officially released, her self-produced track Discover has been picking up plays on XFM. It provides an excellent snapshot of her talents, demonstrating a pop sensibility, which clearly establishes her as a success story in the making.
