New Zealand expatriates, ChloŽ Lewer and Elliott McKee are the indie-folk musical duo, ĎCharity Childrení. After moving to Germany mid 2011, the two began busking on the streets of Berlin, as the prospect of finding work (being two fairly skill-less, monolinguists) was always going to be unlikely.
With their endearing, intimate style, they have managed to build up quite a following during the summer months from their street music. Their ukulele-driven sound also features harmonica, melodeon, xylophone, hand percussion and anything else small enough to fit in their suitcase when they go busking. However, what really sets Charity Children apart from similar acts is ChloŽís beautiful, ethereal vocals and the pairs strong onstage connection and rapport.
Charity Children have recently finished recording their first album in their living room which sees their sound suitably enhanced with the addition of horns, strings, drums, piano and a childrenís choir.
Their debut single and music video 'Elizabeth', will be released on February 18th, 2013, shortly followed by their first album 'The Autumn Came.'
