Charlotte Cardin



Bellus Magazine (BM):  Where does your passion from music come from?

Charlotte Cardin (CC):  From my parents. They are huge music fans and have always exposed my sister and me to different kinds of music ever since we were kids.

BM:  Did you always know you wanted to be a performer? 

CC:  Yes, but I didn’t think it was possible to make a living out of it until I was a teenager. I then realized it was such a passion for me, I didn’t have a choice but to make it work.

BM:  You started out in the modeling industry. What made you switch from modeling to music? 
CC:  I never wanted to make a living out of modeling. I knew from the start it would be a temporary job. Modeling was never a passion for me, where as music always was.

BM:  What is your process like when it comes to writing song lyrics? 

CC:  I sit at the piano and write lyrics and music at the same time. I usually get inspired by things I see or hear, not necessarily by personal experiences.

BM:  Your on tour right now with Chet Faker. What has been your favorite experience on the tour? 

CC:  Just playing to brand new crowds every day has been absolutely wonderful. It is so stimulating to introduce your music to new crowds because it is a challenge and it’s exciting to see people’s first reactions.

BM:  What advice can you give to other aspiring artist out there who want to be successful with their art?
