Cleo is the debut album for singer/songwriter/producer, Charlotte Dos Santos. Born in Norway, Charlotte combines soul, jazz, rare groove and Afro-Latin influences, with a warm sense of storytelling and an angelic voice that seems to float over any track it's on. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY – Charlotte has been making waves as of late with her sentimentally-timeless singles "Red Clay" and "Good Sign," and keen visual aesthetic (best seen in her music videos, which she co-directs).
Now Charlotte makes good on all of the potential she's shown thus far with the release of her debut project, Cleo. The album compiles a few lost Soundcloud and compilation fan-favorites ("Move On," "Take It Slow," and "Watching You") with stand-out pieces (including "Good Sign," "Cleo," "King Of Hearts") – all coming together to paint a singular, yet universal, coming-of-age love story.
On the album title's significance, Charlotte explains "'Cleo' is a woman who represents power, femininity, courage and independence. She is ambitious and fearless, yet humble. She is the woman I feel I am becoming, and the woman I feel all girls could be." Charlotte wrote and produced the project herself, with Oslo beatmaker Fredfades (of the Mutual Intentions crew) contributing on four songs as well.
