Samantha Charles

Samantha Charles is a UK based Bowie fan "he had me with that finger point on TOTP in 1972" with a love of most types of music from hip hop to rock to experimental jazz. She loves going to live gigs and dancing in the standing stalls.

Her kids say her music taste is “weird” but she has successfully introduced them to Flying Lotus, The Avalanches, Anderson Paak and Tame Impala most recently.

Samantha has an almost continuous internal soundtrack playing and can often name that tune in two.
