It’s not every day you meet someone who is seems so secure in their insecurities. It’s the lovely sense of contrasts that is part of Charmaine. Her life as a modern-day gypsy has kept her anchored to her family and her life’s mission.
An only child of parents who immigrated to Australia from Chile, Charmaine was raised in Sydney, Australia. With music at the core of their family, her parents committed their lives to music ministry and traveled the world as part of a vocal group. Charmaine was born on tour in Los Angeles and raised out of a suitcase.
At 16, she moved to the U.S. where she toured with notable Christian artists Rebecca St.James, Jeremy Camp, newsboys, and others until she turned 23 and knew it was time to branch out on her own and find a way to share a story through a sound that is unmistakably her own.
In 2009 Charmaine got the opportunity to release an album of her own for in:ciite (formerly Indelible Creative Group). The record will hit the shelves March 30, 2010. Charmaine says the journey is not always easy but it’s an adventurous one walking it with Him, a message that can be found in her first single, “TOKYO!” spinning now at Christian radio.
