The story of The Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is one of those you usually see on movies. Only 18 years old she left everything she had and knew, family and friends, and moved to London to dedicate her life to her music and art. A vague dream about reaching out with her music became an everlasting journey about fighting for your right to build a life on your own terms, learning what it means to be an artist and how to make an impact—now with over 35,000 dedicated followers and fans with her on her journey through her monthly newsletter, and her social sites like Twitter and Tumblr. Forward a few years and she has started her own publishing & distribution company Broken Glass Records, released 5 critically acclaimed EPs and 3 full-length albums—I’d Like To Remain A Mystery, 2013, and I Must Be Gone and Live, or Stay and Die, 2014, and Under Northern Skies, 2016. She had her single “I Will Lead You Home” reaching #2 on the Swedish iTunes-chart, was names Breakthrough Indie Artist Of The Year by Lemonade Magazine, and has been played on major radio such as BBC6 (UK), Sveriges Radio (Sweden) and 3FM (Netherlands). In April 2013 she published her first book “Empty Roads and Broken Bottles; in search for The Great Perhaps”, telling the story about her leaving, searching and going after her dream. The book was beautifully received and has been widely praised both by her fanbase and by a new literary crowd of writers and readers. With a growing literary following, Charlotte is slowly becoming a prolific freelance writer, essayist, and poet, with her writings published on sites like Thought Catalog, Rebelle Society, Germ Magazine and Luna Luna Magazine.
As a wandering soul, Charlotte is constantly vagabonding and relocating to spread her art and music. She has spent the last 2 years in Germany, developing her craft as a songwriter and producer.
”I wanted to turn my life into my art. My very existence into a poem.
This is my story – it’s been a beautiful fight. It still is.”
