Charlotte Yates is a recording artist based in Wellington where she has released six albums of her own material on Jayrem Records. Her first album Queen Charlotte Sounds was released in 1991, with the single Red Letter an APRA Silver Scroll finalist.

Melbourne-based from 1993 to 1996, Charlotte directed the 1993 and 1994 Melbourne Fringe Arts Festivals. She studied Contemporary Music Technology and Composition at La Trobe University, Melbourne during 1995. Recorded in Sydney, Charlotte's second album The Desire And The Contempt won the Singer-Songwriter category at the 1997 Wellington Music Awards.

Thirty of Charlotte's lyrics were collated as One Lady Driver and published in March 1999. Her lyrics also featured in How You Doing, an anthology of NZ comic verse. She released her third album Dead Fish Beach in May 2001.

Charlotte is also the director and producer for Baxter, a compilation CD of James K Baxter's poetry set to music by twelve NZ recording artists. Performances of Baxter featured in the NZ Festival 2000, the Taranaki & Christchurch Arts Festivals in 2001 & Hamilton's FUEL Festival, 2002.

Charlotte was the artist-in-residence at the Christchurch Arts Centre during April/May 2002 where she concentrated on songwriting and guitar performance.
