At a time when seemingly everyone is releasing music online and aspiring to full-time careers in the music industry, even today’s most talented artists consider distinguishing themselves a daunting task.
Charleston, Westport, CT born and currently attending the Berklee College of Music, comes from a musical family which includes her mother Rondi Charleston—a noted jazz singer/composer. Her grandmother was a famous classical singer based in Chicago. At age eight, she made guest appearances at Lincoln Center, singing background vocals with her mother’s jazz quartet. Charleston has since created, performed, and interpreted different styles of music, resulting in her development as a classically trained singer who can also belt out pop, R&B, jazz, and rock anthems.
On her new single “Falling,” folk pop singer-songwriter Emma Charleston captures both the angst and the optimism of an extraordinarily gifted musician in an overly saturated market. Based at the prestigious and intensely competitive Berklee College of Music, the multi-instrumentalist Charleston delivers a dreamy ballad of a tune that touches on themes of self-doubt, determination, and individuality. “Falling” is now available digitally via iTunes, Spotify and other online sites.
