Charlotte Sometimes On 'Circus Head,' The Voice, Blake Shelton, Her Name
Charlotte Sometimes, The Voice contest who turned four chairs in the blind auditions, gets personal with Uintervew taking fan questions on her album Circus Head and the disease she battled with when she was young.
At age 14, Charlottte was diagnosed with condylar resorption, a rare disease that eats at your jaw. The disease didn’t stop Charlotte’s singing career as she adapted to sing with a fragile jaw. Since correcting her disintegrated jaw, which stole two of her ribs in the painful process, nothing has changed in her singing. “I don’t think they necessarily change my voice, I have a weird pronunciation. I had to move my mouth around strangely because I had to work with what I had when my bones weren’t really there. I had to be more creative when I sang.”
Since debuting Circus Head over a year ago, Charlotte had been working on a new EP that is set to release soon.
Circus Head is myself, I am a circus head, people invited me all the time. I thought it was a good title for what it is I feel inside all the time. On “Paint the Sky,” I was really head over heels in love with this guy. My last love letter was kind of asking him if he was going to step up and be the man that I need him to be and the answer to that question was no.
Probably Eddy Gifford. I would love to work with him.
I’m going to be releasing a new live EP, that comes out in a month or so.
He made me believe in myself for the person that I am. I was always apologizing for being me. He always told me to be myself and that was good enough.
Not so much. I did for a little while, but he is a busy man.
Probably love and anxiety — those are the two strongest forces in my life.
Cold October by Escondido is being played on repeat.
I think you perform with your voice when you learn how to use it. I’ve been taking vocal lesson since I was 15 so about ten years of hard work.
My condylars, which are the bones that hold your jaw together disintegrated, so my whole face fractured they took two of my ribs broke them in half replaced them in my jaw. No, I don’t think they necessarily change my voice, but I have a weird pronunciation. I had to move my mouth around strangely because I had to work with what I had when my bones weren’t really there. I had to be more creative when I sang.
I think because the girl got trapped in time and had to be someone else. I feel like we all feel that way, she also found herself in this person she thought she was. I think to myself there are a few people inside everybody who represent who you really are.
