2 - CHARLES, CHLOE - WITH BLINDFOLDS ON - (CD) 
MAKE MY DAY


Even before the release of With Blindfolds On, Chloe Charles sophomore orchestral-soul-pop album received accolades with its opening track, Black & White, winning the 2014 Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the Lennon Award for Pop. Sparsely orchestrated, yet characteristically lush, the vulnerable song Black & White sets the tone for this albums labyrinthine soundscape through loss, love and yearning, lust and joie de vivre with her 3 dimensional orchestral romance and a hypnotizing voice reminiscent of Billie Holiday's sultry poise, Adele's intensity, the grit of Amy Winehouse and the courage and mischief of Bjork. Raised within the unconventional milieu of her artist grandfather and the singing, song-writing women in her family, living among the forests, ponds and meadows that dot the rolling hills of the Oak Ridges Moraine, just north of Toronto, Chloe (also an accomplished painter) was encouraged to question everything and seek new ways of doing old things. In Chloe's home, things were always becoming something else, even the house itself: two century old barns torn down, relocated and rebuilt into an art school, later revamped to create an out of this world apartment complex and social hub for an eclectic assortment of creative people who delighted in "making things" - they didn't know any other way of being: the potter, the photographer, the guitar builder, the inventor, the painter, the poet, the weaver, etc. With Blindfolds On demonstrates the continuing evolution of Charles the person, her music and her predilection for invention. With this album she challenges herself and her audience to limit our dependence on the material "what is" and experience life intuitively, as in with blindfolds on, to discover "what could be". "Dismiss your fear of stumbling," Charles dares, "Let's play, let's explore!". For instance, while most of these songs have been characteristically composed with the classical guitar, and you'll savour her recognizably dexterous filigree (Hold Me, Through Your Eyes, Wool Sweater, Run Your Course, Tulip), in others, she rests the guitar to focus on her voice (Black & White, Take Me Naked, Smiling).
