Stromata Fall Tour - September - December 2006

On September 12, 2006, Charlotte released her latest and long anticipated full length CD. This CD was released on Charlotte's own terms...new sound, new label, and even stronger than her previous works. 'Stromata' was about connections and disconnections. It's a bold CD filled with songs that describe any and all relationships and all the 'drama' (good and bad) that can go on. Stromata can be split down the middle in terms of the music...an in your face, electronic, drum/bass, rock album in the first half and a more familiar semi-acoustic album in the second half. And there's a little German aria thrown in for good measure. :) Emotional, intense, gutsy, amazing. Charlotte's music evolved into a more powerful, electronic/drum/bass/synth sound that complemented the intensity of the lyrics perfectly. There was no doubt that the Charlotte and the Stromata Tour would outdo every show that came before. Awesome new songs, favorite songs reworked, 3 keyboards played by Char, tracks and loops and the addition of the super-talented and fierce Fernando Sanchez on drums made for some of the most exciting live Char shows yet! Charlotte hit some new cities on this tour (Morristown NJ, Brooklyn NY, Davenport IA, Santa Fe NM to name a few) and she rocked. The shows connected everyone in that room. We were all there to see Char ROCK OUT and she and Fernando did not disappoint. The energy was intense and bounced from Char to the audience...back and forth. It was Stromata every nite, every show. Everything Charlotte has done has lead to Stromata...it's all there in the music and the connections she has made through her music since the beginning. Here is a recap of the Stromata Tour 2006! Setlists, reviews, photos. I have lots there, just click on the links to the show. And I am always looking for submissions so if you have anything you'd like to share from any and all shows you've been to, please send them to me at jules[at]darkest-limits.com. God, I love Char tour. :) Enjoy this recap and thank you for all the connection.
