Charlie Dore with Julian Littman

Charlie Dore is one of the UK’s most respected singer songwriters. In an unusually diverse career her songs have won two Ascap awards, an Ivor Novello nomination and both the Overall Grand and the Folk Prize from the International Acoustic Music Awards. 

Charlie’s appeal continues to grow year after year with over 2 million streams on Spotify and the awards still coming.

Her 2017 album Dark Matter won both Album of the Year and Best Lyrics from the US Indie Acoustic Project, while her 2020 album, Like Animals, won her FATEA’s 2020 Female Artist of the Year  and  Best Lyrics 20-21 from the US Indie Acoustic Project.

While her own albums favour her more eclectic/roots leanings, she is one of a handful of UK writers to achieve success across many genres, defined by the range of artists to have recorded her songs, including Tina Turner, George Harrison, Celine Dion, Ricky Ross and Jimmy Nail, notching up a UK No 1, US No 4 plus Top 10 hits in Italy, Germany and France. 

Festival appearances include Glastonbury, Celtic Connections, Shrewsbury Folk Festival and Beverley Folk Fest. She continues writing for and with other artists and also enjoys mentoring emerging songwriters when she’s not recording or touring. December 2021 saw the release of her first ever Christmas EP The Man Who Built Christmas which  included in her 2022 tour sets on the basis that a good song isn’t just for Christmas. Meanwhile she continues writing ‘Background Noise’, a series of essays about her life both on and off stage.

An amazingly astute, moving, intelligent and connected songwriter…a voice like Kate McGarrigle meets Dory Previn. Wonderful –  Mike Harding
