Charlotte Church has been my client since working on her new album artwork over some rainy days on the Welsh coastline and some sunny days in a West London studio.
Truly one of the most sweet, genuine and down-to-earth people you are going to meet, quickly her huge smile and gorgeous green eyes envelop you into a cosy intimacy that she is, really is, one of the girls…
Last night I was laughing with the rest of ‘Team Church’ in the green room, backstage while she filmed and ran circles with her ready wit, around Chris and his guests on The Chris Moyles Quiz Night Show for Channel 4. We’ve been in retro 70’s Streatham houses, tastefully antiquated Stamford Hill terraces, the wilds of Wales, West End mansions (where noone wanted to know what they were filming in the basement!), plus many more… Each time, I look forward to spending time with Charlotte, for her friendliness, sense of fun and honest intelligence. But when I heard her sing last month at a secret gig in Balham, then at The Pigalle, then I was blown away, the voice is a gift from God and for once in my life it left me speechless!.. I feel proud to be working with someone who is the real deal. Charlotte is so much more than a pretty face (which she has of course!); and while we love the dress up part of our work together and I love styling Charlotte and seeing her rock a new look: which we’re calling ‘Celtic Grunge’ (a style where she looks 24 and which we feel suits both the tone of her album and her); it’s that precious voice which underpins all this.
Here are some of her recent looks for different events and artwork.
About the M4, Dave, Charlotte’s sweet as they come driver, reckons he can get to London from Cardiff during rush hour in 3 hours max. Given it took me over 4 when starting out at midnight, you know you’re on the right team!!!
The new album is due out very soon. For more info, go to www.charlottechurch.com
You can also see the video we worked on for Back To Scratch (directed by the legend that is Kevin Godley) here on my website.
