‘Charity Children’ are an indie/alt-pop project between Chloë Lewer and Elliott McKee. Once lovers, now dear friends, the band was formed on the streets of Berlin in 2011 soon after the duo moved to Germany from New Zealand. 
Evolving within the heart of Berlin’s indie/street scene - the band quickly gained a supportive following- most famously playing Sunday afternoons at Mauerpark.
In 2013 they released their first album, ‘The Autumn Came’. 'Elizabeth' was their breakout single and would later win ‘Best Song’ at the Berlin Music Video Awards. Indie blog ‘I Heart Berlin’ described the band as “enchanting audiences with their intimate and heartfelt style, sophisticated and honest lyrics, and breathtaking vocals. As their story, their music is not ordinary, it is a purely progressive and distinctive street-folk sound, which is becoming day by day the soundtrack to the animated streets of Berlin.”
The live band has ranged between a duo and up to 13 members on stage and they've toured many major European festivals.
In 2016 Charity Children released their second album ‘Fabel’. From this album ‘Butterflies’ and ‘Whispering Still’ were songs remixed by music collective 'SRTW' and have almost 30 million streams between them.
Between 2017-2020 'Charity Children’ went on hiatus from producing and playing live to pursue individual creative projects. Charity Children have reunited for their third album (set for release in 2021) and is the duo’s favourite collaboration to date.
