Chloë Lewer and Elliott McKee are the indie-folk musical duo, ‘Charity Children Berlin’. After moving from New Zealand to Germany in 2011, Chloe and Elliott landed in Berlin where they began busking as a profession. Driven by a ukulele, a beautiful voice, and a handful of pocket sized instruments Charity Children Berlin managed to build a following. The two years Chloe and Elliott spent in Berlin have done more than just a following from the folks in Berlin though.
The duo have now turned trio by adding a cello player, and are set to release their full debut album ‘The Autumn Came’ in mid 2013. They’ve also recently released ‘Elizabeth’ a free single to get our ear buds wet, and a handful of other videos on their webpage. Make sure you download that single below from the Soundcloud player, and keep your eyes peeled for that album release. We’ll make sure and update you as soon as it comes out.
“‘The Autumn Came’ represents a selection of songs written and performed over their first summers in Berlin; collaborating with an orchestra of other musicians to transfer their distinctive street-folk sound into the studio. Some songs are joyful, some painfully tragic but all heartfelt.”
“He looks just like an angel,” said the Charity Children as they came out of the cathedral in their bright scarlet cloaks and their clean white pinafores.
“How do you know?” said the Mathematical Master, “you have never seen one.”
“Ah! but we have, in our dreams,” answered the children; and the Mathematical Master frowned and looked very severe, for he did not approve of children dreaming.
