Emma Charles drops home-video inspired clip for "Connecticut"

Emma Charles continues to rise up the ranks of singer-songwriter notoriety in the LA area with the release of her new EP Connecticut, as well as the video for its title track. On "Connecticut", Charles uses her 2019 road trip from her home state of Connecticut to Los Angeles as an allegory for transitioning from the familiar to the unfamiliar, the comfortable to the unknown. The video for the track shows Charles as a child in many of her family's home videos, but it ends with the present-day singer-songwriter smiling, showcasing her readiness to go forth into whatever comes next for her. Billboard named Charles a Best Emerging Artist of 2020, and NOW That's What I Call Music named her a What's Next artist, an honor given previously to acts such as Shawn Mendes and Billie Eilish. Take a look at the video for "Connecticut" below. - Will Sisskind


Emma Charles releases reflective new single "Scorpio," performs at The Mint on 8/19

The inspiration behind "Scorpio," Emma Charles' new single, came like one of those spur-of-the-moment conversations we have with the ones closest to us. After having a conversation with a friend, she was aware of the fact that her birth date is close to two star signs (for those interested, she's in between a Sagittarius and a Scorpio), each known to have distinct personality traits. Random conjecturing on astrology aside, the folk-pop singer's latest also finds a satisfactory compromise—the gentle mid-tempo cut is delicate yet assured, where she battles the intense oscillating emotions that consume her mental energy.

Charles is supporting the release of "Scorpio" at Hunnypot Live at The Mint on August 19. Juan Rodríguez
