Charlotte OC

Left-field pop artist Charlotte OC, born Charlotte O'Connor in Blackburn, Lancashire, England, was signed to Columbia during her teenage years.

The singer and songwriter recorded an album for the label, but it was shelved and she was dropped. O'Connor took a break from music and spent a couple years working at her mother's salon. Once she became active again, the Stranger label -- the U.K. home to Lana Del Rey -- signed her, and her music took a darker hue, with the folk shadings of her earlier work replaced with moodier R&B and downtempo electronic elements. In November 2013, she debuted with Colour My Heart, an EP of four dramatic yet restrained songs recorded with Tim Anderson (Solange, Sia, Banks). Complementary remixes from Moodymann and Yarin Lidor followed shortly thereafter. After she moved to Harvest/Polydor, the EPs Strange and Burning followed across 2014 and 2015. In 2016, she released the slightly ominous yet accessible singles "Blackout" and "Darkest Hour." ~ Andy Kellman
