Dear Pariah is the moniker for London based artist Charlotte Hinchcliff, a 24 year old British singer-songwriter and arranger. With an ever evolving band of 7 consisting of vocals, guitar, drums and strings, she creates soaring soundscapes through her arrangements. Her voice holds the weight of an old soul on young shoulders, with a distinctive sound that demands your attention.
Her debut self titled EP was released in August 2012 and was well received by Simon Raymonde (Bella Union/Cocteau Twins) and Ruth Barnes (Amazing Radio) both of which featured her as their Artist Of The Week on Amazing Radio. Since then she has performed both solo and with her band in London and around the UK at venues such as Old St Pancras Church, Jamboree, The Green Note and A Carefully Planned Festival in Manchester.
In May of this year, she won the Emerging Music Competition on Amazing Radio and in more recent times has also received an Emerging Excellence Award from Help Musicians UK, which will help fund her debut album in 2015. Having spent the last year writing new material, her highly anticipated second EP (co-produced by Brett Shaw who has recently worked with Daughter and Florence & The Machine) will be ready for release on 1st October 2014, with the financial help of fans through Pledge.
