True indeed, in November of 2020, Sands leaked a song called “Dress” that she wrote about Harry Styles wearing a dress on the cover of Vogue.
Within hours, the song became an anthem of self expression for thousands, hitting 35 million global steams.
Now, with millions of listeners, “Dress” achieved even more exposure than at its initial release, and has been charting on the Pop and Hot AC Top 40 Radio in the US for 11 weeks.
It was also recently featured on Ryan Seacrest’s American Top 40 Countdown as well as SiriusXM’s Venus, The Pulse and Hits 1.
“Dress is a song about self expression and the confidence it takes to be your authentic self today’s society.
“We wrote this song hoping it would start more conversations about gender norms while also feeling like a celebration of each other’s differences. I hope when people listen they feel seen and I hope it gives them the boost of confidence to dress the way they want to and be the person that they are despite judgement or criticism. As an artist, I am so lucky I get to express myself everyday for a living and I think everyone deserves that freedom.” ,” says Charlotte.
To celebrate Dress’ continued success, Charlotte released a four song EP with different versions of the song, including a Dance remix with Avedon, an acoustic version, and a heavy version.
In May, Charlotte performed two of her biggest shows to date in the UK, headlining Camden Assembly in London and opening for My Chemical Romance at MK Stadium in Milton Keynes.
“This is the craziest day of my entire life,” said Charlotte to a crowd of 30,000 people.
“I am so, so, so grateful to get to do this as my job. I still can’t believe this is real. Thank you My Chemical Romance for having me, I’ll be watching your show from the back in absolute awe and pinching myself every 3 seconds,” she continued.
The prolific Nashville-based artist has also announced her first-ever national headlining tour dubbed the Love and Other Lies Tour, starting 9/6.
However, the electric blue haired singer/songwriter’s musical career didn’t start with the overnight success of a viral song.
At 18, she stole her mom’s car, found a roommate on Craigslist, and left her home in Hopkinton, MA for Nashville, TN, with a plan to take a year off of school before attending Berklee College of Music but she never went back.
Thereafter, she dropped 7 singles from her bedroom in lockdown.
Alternative Press named Sands one of “11 rising artists who fine-tuned their sound’ where else Spotify chose Charlotte for the cover of their year-end playlist, Fresh Finds: Best of Pop 2020 – her catalog amassing over 80 Million Global Streams.
In 2022, you can find Sands spending the majority of her time on tour, opening for artists like YUNGBLUD, My Chemical Romance, and The Maine, and headlining at Camden Assembly.
Sands’ personal mission to “create a safe space for people to feel accepted and celebrated for their weirdness and diversity” is something she takes seriously.
And as evident by the overwhelmingly positive comments that flood her social media, her fans take pride in championing her as they recognize how she champions them.
