Earlier this year, V met the rising multi-faceted powerhouse who is bridging the worlds of soul and R&B with her infectious music and production: Charlotte Day Wilson.

As a leader in the Toronto music scene and upon the release of her lastest EP Stone Woman, which she served as a writer, singer, producer, and instrumentalist, Wilson told V, "I had been practicing producing for a long time, but I guess I didn’t think I was good enough to actually put something out there that could potentially be on, like, Spotify. So when I did [my first EP] CDW, I really pushed myself to get better and better. I think with Stone Woman, I’ve definitely honed my production chops a lot more and I’m collaborating with some really great players to curate the sounds that I’m going for, exploring some of the darker tones that I shied away from in CDW.”

Wilson's keen attention to detail and active observation finds itself in other ways of her life, one being her style. On asking how she would describe her style, Wilson says, "I don't think I know what my style is. I think it's always changing. I think the one thing I could say though is that some days I feel femme and some days I feel masculine, some days I feel that in between area."

Charlotte took time from her busy schedule to hop in a studio, other than the recording, and gave us a glimpse of her style in action.
