“If ’80s futurism, synth pop and infectious pop bangers are you’re thing, then congratulations: Charley Stride just made your day.” Complex
The debut release from Southampton singer Charley Stride is a pop record channeling 80’s vibes with 2017 sensibilities. Over a synth heavy backdrop Charley sings a tale of two people with a deep connection searching for each other.
Hailing from Southampton, Charley has been singing since she was six years old. Starting in a choir and later being a mainstay of her local live circuit, gigging all over the South coast from the age of 16. She went on to win national singing competitions and signed her first record deal as a teenager.
She has performed on stage with acts ranging from Tom Jones and Jools Holland to Anastacia and The Kooks. Inspired by big voices of yesteryear including Whitney Houston, Lauryn Hill and Kate Bush, Charley hopes to channel her passion for music of various styles into a diverse sound of her own.
‘Different Stars’ has been added to a number of key Spotify playlists, including New Dance Revolution and Chilled Pop Hits playlists, and is a song that refuses to be boxed into one genre, or place in time – this marks an exciting debut for a talented young artist with a very bright future.
