Dundee singer-songwriter Be Charlotte has said it’s an “honour” to be nominated for and to be asked to perform at 2019’s Specsavers Scottish Music Awards.
The 22-year-old musician, who grew up in Kellas, Angus, has been nominated for the Evolution Award sponsored by Assai Dundee and will also perform at the glittering awards ceremony on Saturday November 30.
Be Charlotte, whose real name is Charlotte Brimner, said: “It’s an honour to be asked to perform at this event and be nominated for the Evolution Award.
“It’s been an incredible year for music from Scotland and it is so exciting to have the opportunity to celebrate that success with everyone.
“Nordoff Robbins is a charity that has been close to my heart for a number of years.
“When I was in third year at school I researched and wrote a project about all the amazing work they do and since then it has always inspired me.
“I use music as a way to express my feelings and say things I can’t normally say in everyday conversation and using music as a way to help other people is something I feel very passionate about.”
With a mix of her soulful, upbeat sounds, Be Charlotte has grown from strength to strength over the past year with record label Sony Music signing the Scottish artist back in 2018.
Performing at the likes of Edinburgh’s Hogmanay, TRNSMT and opening the iconic V&A Dundee alongside Scottish music legends, Primal Scream in 2018, Be Charlotte has already got some major performances under her belt.
Last month Nordoff Robbins announced music icons Simple Minds as performers at The Specsavers Scottish Music Awards, alongside one of the biggest breakthrough artists of the last year Tom Walker and one of Scotland’s most talked about artists of the moment, Joesef, who has already been compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse with his sweet-toned sounds.
Other nominees include Lewis Capaldi who is nominated for the King Tut’s Songwriting Award whilst DJ, producer and musician, Auntie Flo is nominated for the Electronic Music Award sponsored by Sub Club, fresh from his Scottish Album of the Year award win.
Anstruther-raised radio DJ and TV presenter, Edith Bowman will also make her debut as host at this year’s ceremony.
Meanwhile, it has been announced that Raymond Weil is sponsoring the Best UK Artist Award with the latest nominee revealed as Liam Gallagher.
