Through a glass, darkly
THE Glass Child, Charlotte Eriksson, is from Sweden and at 19 moved to London to give her life to music.
Hi Charlotte, when did you first fall in love with music?
I got into music quite late, I was around 16, and the first song I connected with was "Round Here" by Counting Crows. I just knew that I wanted to spend my life creating that feeling you get when you hear a song like that.

Trevor Hall is a huge inspiration. I look up to a lot of writers too, like Pablo Neruda, Neil Gaiman and Charles Bukowski.
Your new single is about domestic violence, is that a subject close to your heart?
Yes it is, all these things around mental struggle is very close to me and that's why I wanted to release this single, to speak up about it and let these people know that they're not alone and that it's okay to talk about it.
What do you want to tell the world?
That life is worth exploring and no one should settle for other people's expectations of who you are and what you should do. You can become whoever you want to be if you just want it bad enough.
Sum up your music in five words.
Real, honest, raw, bold and ghostly.
You can catch The Glass Child on the main stage at Purley Festival on Saturday, June 30.
