‘As the Summer’ is Charlotte’s debut album of 8 tracks. With soulful vocals, insightful lyrics, and rich harmonies throughout, Charlotte shares some of her reflections on life’s beauty and complexity. The album brings you on a journey from upbeat bangers like Blue Light and Highlight Reel to lush, soothing tracks like Shimmer and Breathe. The album experience brings you from agitated tension to peace and clarity, with Such Walls Fail bringing a poignant instrumental ending to the record. Producing and arranging the tracks from her dining room studio in Birmingham, Charlotte has brought together songs that she has written over the past 4 years into a cohesive collection of soulful songs. She has worked remotely with musicians all over the world to record instrumental parts and compile them for each track. The album title, As The Summer, is a line taken from Lemon Sky that encapsulates the atmosphere of the whole album. It is also a nod to her previous artist name, As the Summer, which comes from her Chinese name 夏丽 (xià lì) which means ‘summer beauty’. Beautiful as the summer. As the summer.

Painted human
Highlights and shadows
Craving your judgment, your fragile approval
I’m asking why…

Lyrics from 'Highlight Reel'

Charlotte's debut album 'As The Summer' is available to stream and download now on all major digital platforms. She is also selling a limited run of CDs and vinyl from her website.


Charlotte Champian is a singer/songwriter, disability advocate and entrepreneur. She writes and produces jazz-infused soulful songs from her studio in Birmingham, UK. Her distinctive style experiments with layering of vocal harmonies, trumpets, double bass and keys. Her musical influences include Lianne La Havas, Laura Mvula, Brooke Fraser, Joni Mitchell, Birdy and Jacob Collier.

Her latest single, Shimmer, is a soulful love song written in the lockdowns of 2020. ‘May your shimmer linger un-diffused'.

Charlotte is passionate about writing uplifting music and songs that talk about real life issues that we all face. As a musician with a hidden disability, she is also working to make her music as accessible as possible and raising awareness about physical and mental health in the music industry.

Fun facts: Charlotte can raise her eyebrows to the music (like in the Cadbury's advert). She spent a lot of her childhood in China and loves cooking Chinese cuisine.
